The Sun Did Not Shine, Was It Too Wet Too Play

‘Look at me. Look at me. Look at me now!

It is fun to have fun, but you have to know how.”

The Cat in the Hat, Dr Seuss

Wet weather could not dampen our spirits as our Infants School gathered together with the special men in their lives to celebrate Father’s Day.

And what dad wouldn’t like to start the day with a hot breakfast and the opportunity to play Lego or board games with their child? The children were thrilled to have their fathers and grandfathers in their classroom and give them their hand-made, heart-felt gifts.

The Father’s Day concert celebrated fatherhood through words of song and praise, and delightful films of children pondering the role of fathers.

Mr Archer, our sensational Sports Teacher, addressed both parent and child and spoke about our long-term mission to Vanuatu, of how when we give of ourselves we are often unexpectedly rewarded in a greater way through the generosity of others. It was a moving reflection on the love the Lord God has for His people and a reminder of where our priorities should lay.

The morning ended with the children singing a blessing and in response, the men in the audience lifted their voices in song to bless the children.

Rain or shine, there is always time for one another.
