A prayer for the end of year

Lord God, the greatest of all Teachers

Bless all in this school as we seek to end our year with the grace you so generously provide.

We give thanks for the students the staff, the school council, the families and all who have contributed to this successful and joy filled year.

We stand before you a community greatly blessed by many cultures, languages and nationalities. What a gift indeed it is Lord to come together as the body of Christ and celebrate as one community.

We affirm all the positive moments, of insight, of the excitement of learning, of accomplishment, of creativity, of laughter, of a sense of community.

We recognise the times of struggle, of difficult work, the tinge of sadness that comes with farewelling staff, students and families. We ask that all who come into our community go out in the way you taught us, to pass the good news to all. May we always be grateful for the time we have had together as part of the school community.

As we leave for the summer break May we take with us the knowledge that you will keep us all in your embrace so we may rest and be restored.
Assure us of your presence as we can continue in the ongoing teaching and learning of your love expressed most profoundly in the sacrifice of your precious son Jesus.

Amen
