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

"Whoever believes in Jesus should not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:15)

What a night for the Minnesota Twins baseball team. They had just defeated the Detroit Tigers and won the American League pennant for the first time in twenty-two years. More than 50,000 people, young and old, crowded into the Metrodome to welcome their victors home from Detroit. One reporter called out to Greg Gagne, the Twins' shortstop, and commented, "This has got to be the greatest moment of your life." Quietly Gagne replied, "Actually, no. That was the moment I asked Jesus Christ into my life."

Our times of triumph are less than dust compared with the moment we accepted Jesus Christ as our Saviour. It's a decision that changes our destiny forever.

Thought for Today:

"To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived, this is to have succeeded."
