It might be easy to fall into negative thinking when we are tired, however we encourage our families to reflect on the positives from the past term and look to the future in anticipation. The Easter story reminds us that it is a time for renewal, new opportunities and new life.
Easter is the perfect time to remind our families that the Christ the King School community supports one another if you are struggling or need support.
In addition to our support staff, including assistant principal, support teacher – inclusive education, and guidance officer, Christ the King School has a welcoming P&F Association. Not only does the association organise events that connect us as a community, it also coordinates meals and assistance through its Care and Concern team.
We thank everyone for their contributions to our school throughout this first term. We hope our newest members have enjoyed settling into school life and are working towards their goals for the year.
All students from Prep to Year 6 have been sharing and reflecting on the Easter story and the importance of Holy Week, including Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday and Good Friday.
This will culminate in a series of Holy Week prayer reflections to be led by our students as we approach the end of Term 1.
As we journey towards Easter, our students have been reflecting on the last week of Jesus' life, known as Holy Week. Prep and Year 3 students will re-enact Palm Sunday at our Holy Week prayer reflection on Friday, 24 March. This is a joyous time to connect as a community and we invite you to share in this reflection with the school and our students.
Traditionally, palm branches were used as a sign of welcome and to celebrate Jesus' triumphant entry into Jerusalem. During Lent, teachers have discussed with students how we can all welcome Jesus into our lives and follow in his footsteps with random acts of kindness.
