• Infants Thanksgiving Service 2017

    19 December, 2017

    The Infants classes celebrated the end of a wonderful year with the Infants Thanksgiving Service on Friday, November 24.

    This year, the service was again presented outside the chapel. The setting was truly beautiful and the weather was perfect. We were thrilled to welcome all the parents and grandparents as well as our special guests from Macquarie Care. We also welcomed the Primary students and staff. It was lovely to have so many people join us and help celebrate the special occasion.

    The theme for the service was Trusting in God’s Plan for Us. The songs and readings led by Year 2 and the prayers said by Year 1 reflected the theme of trusting in God, although we do not always know what lies ahead. Kindergarten and Year 1 students recited The Kindness of God by Andrew Pell. All students from Kindergarten, Year 1 and Year 2 performed their roles with dignity and reverence. It was a calm, gentle and joyful celebration.

    I would like to thank the Infants’ Staff, Mrs Jo Nicholls, Mrs Maggie Walsh and the Music Staff, Mrs Elizabeth Tamsitt, Ms Rosemary Fogarty and Ms Michelle Griffin for their preparation of the students and special contributions to the service. I would like to acknowledge Mrs Leonie Keogh for the invaluable assistance she gives in the lead up to service with preparation of the Thanksgiving Service Booklets, organisation of the books for presentation to the students, gifts for Macquarie Care and the crèche.

    I would also like to acknowledge Mr Christopher Jackman, Mr Jon Clipsham (Audio/technical equipment and management) and Mr Graham Sharpe and the maintenance/grounds staff for their invaluable assistance in staging the service outside. Thank you to the Thorne family for their contributions to the floral arrangements and a special thank you to Mrs Cherylene Anderson for all the beautiful photographs which have captured many memorial moments.

    It was a moving and beautiful way to conclude the year.
