Dear Parents, Students, Staff and Friends of Nativity School,
How time has flown this term! This week we have farewelled our Graduating class of 2022 and met teachers and students who will be in our classes in 2023.
It has been a time of endings and new beginnings. Tonight, we look forward to celebrating the last event of the year with you, our community Christmas Carols. In such a busy time of year with so much going on around us we are reminded that as we busily prepare for Christmas that it is a season of hope and hope is one of the most important gifts that we can share with the next generation – hope in God, hope in one another, and hope in the future. One way to have hope in our hearts is to bring hope to the lives of others. As we celebrate Christmas with our families, let us reach out to someone in our community who may not experience the joy of Christmas that we do.
“It’s Christmas every time you let God love others through you,….yes it is Christmas every time you smile at someone and offer your hand.” Mother Teresa
Next week you will receive information on student wellbeing meetings to be held on Wednesday 23rd January. You can book these optional meetings with your child’s new teacher in the same way you do parent teacher interviews. This is a valuable opportunity to meet your child’s new teacher and to let them know about their wellbeing needs, providing important information that will support your child throughout the year. You can also pick up your child’s stationery at this time. If you are unable to attend, the stationery will be stored until the first day of term 1.
On behalf of the Nativity Staff, thank you for your support as we have navigated the changes and challenges of 2022. We wish you all a blessed and Holy Christmas with your family and look forward to your safe return to us to begin an exciting new year of learning on Monday 30th January 2023.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace. (Romans 15:13)
Erika and Sharyn
