And Jesus said to him, “If you can! All things are possible for one who believes.” Mark 9:23

If hope was a colour, what would it be? Why?

– Can you see signs around the school that tell you it is a hopeful place? Can we improve and celebrate this?

– Can you explain your hopes for the school and how they relate to Christian hope?

– Can you offer the opportunity of a new start to those who need a second chance?

Dear God, Thank you that you always look after us, and care for us whatever situation we are in. Even when we have done wrong you still love us. You give us hope because you love us. Amen.

The Christian understanding of hope is much deeper than our everyday use of the word can be. We hope that it will not rain for the picnic, or that the car will start or that the plumber will come tomorrow. Hope generates energy and sustains people through difficult times. Hope generates energy and sustains people through difficult times.

What are we doing in school to learn about hope?

At school we take every opportunity to celebrate success with:

– House Points

– Celebration Assemblies

– Good manners awards

– Mrs Paterson’s Postcards

– Discovery Schools awards

– Stickers and individual class reward systems.

Hope at home

To show hope at home we can do the following things-

– Show hope by watching the news and praying for someone or something you have seen on it.

– Show hope by if you are losing in a game still believing you can win.

– Show hope by setting yourself a target to get better at something you find difficult.

– Show hope by not getting too down when something bad or difficult happens.

I find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest. I do not judge the universe.

– Dalai Lama
