We believe that through the Scriptures, God has revealed to His people ordering principles that are intensely relevant to education. We also believe He mandates us to bring the whole Word of God to bear in all its power upon education.
Each year, a Bible theme verse is selected. The theme verse is explored in a variety of ways throughout the year. The theme verse is featured in our weekly chapel and is discussed in the classrooms. The verse is also a guiding focus for special events and celebrations.
THEME VERSE 2018-2019:
What does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
-- Micah 6:8b --
The annual Biblical theme inspires a school-wide theme. This year, our School Theme is:
Each month, this topic will be explored during our weekly chapel and in the classrooms. We are asking students to explore "Who is my neighbour?" and "What is my Community?" within the context of our mission statement, to "ignite wonder for God, neighbour, and creation."
In the first three months of the 2018-2019 school year, we have explored different aspects of being Kingdom Ambassadors during our weekly chapel times. We have discussed the topics of PEACE, FOOD SECURITY, and THE RIGHTS OF CHILDREN. The School Theme sparks meaningful conversations about Christian worldviews. Each month, we will focus on a new topic related to our school theme.
Our teachers apply the Theme Verse and School Theme to their classrooms. For some classrooms, this year will include a focus on clean water, others will explore issues such as poverty, refugees, treatment of the elderly, and global organizations that support widows and orphans.
Our Biblical Theme and School Theme are a rich and meaningful way to unpack God's Word for our students and staff.
