Holistic Education

 

The holistic education of students at St Paul's is overseen by the Wellbeing Committee. This Committee is chaired by the Executive Director of Faith and Community and includes the Director of Senior School, the Director of Junior School, the Director of St Paul's International School, the two Counsellors, the Head of Middle Schooling (Pastoral), the Chaplain, the Youth Worker, the Head of Sports Development and the Round Square Coordinator. 

Authentic Ministry, which is part of the Wellbeing Committee's brief, includes members of the St Paul’s community being involved in the ministry of Jesus; is based on Scripture (Luke 4: 18 – 19; Matthew 28: 19 – 20); invites people to participate in the Kingdom of God; equips people to live authentically for Christ; engages with the real world; let’s go of the world’s way of getting things done e.g., for payment, self-gratification, for reward, for power, for status; and seeks to win the world through love, compassion, vulnerability, teaching, mercy, giving, service and faith in God.


Thought for the week from Robin Cox

"Show me your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths." (Psalm 25:4)

The Global Positioning System is changing the way we work, travel and play. Its information can help a lost hiker return to camp, enable a driver to locate a house in a strange city, or guide commercial fishermen to a big catch. In a very real sense, it is "guidance from above."

But what good would it be if a person turned off the unit, jammed it in a pocket, and headed out on his own, saying, "I know I'm going east, even if this things says I'm going south."

In a similar way, God's guidance through the Bible benefits us only when we trust His Word and obey it.

(Our Daily Bread: Celebrating 50 Years)

Thought for Today:

"Kindness, like a boomerang, always returns."
