I wrote a few ago about the importance of gratitude and as I reflect on another busy week at SCS I think of the efforts of those who through their work make SCS a wonderful place to be.
I think of our volunteer coordinator and the parents who assisted with the very successful Father’s Day stall last week. I can remember this wonderful service from when I was in primary school in Adelaide and the great feeling that I came from buying my father a present without my Mum’s help.
I think of the teachers who embrace school events like Book Week with great gusto and in doing do encourage our students to take to their learning with the same level of engagement.
I think of our office staff who tackle many tasks each day to ensure everything is accounted for and is where it should be.
I think of the wonderful greetings I receive from the students as they walk through the gate each morning and hearing about what they did on the weekend or the previous night.
I think of the God who sustains us all each day—especially as I feel the weather warm up and the sunshine comes through my window. Having come from living in the Middle East last year I have an acute awareness of how blessed we are in this beautiful country of Australia.
May we all have gratitude and be aware of God’s blessings this week.
