Our third year is going so well, although you would hardly recognise us from previous years! We began on our first day in 2014 with only three pupils, but we now have 26 pupils of all ages. Back in 2014 we had one teacher but now we have three dedicated teachers, one full-time and two part-time. We thank our God from whom all these blessings flow!
Thank you to all of you who have supported us along the way. Many of you have prayed faithfully for our school – remember that there are regular prayer requests on our blog. Others have given generously, some a one-off gift and others through monthly donations. If you would like to help in this way, check out more about our BT MyDonate page below.
We delight in our work because we serve the Lord. It is encouraging to see how all our pupils are progressing to achieve their potential. While it is great to be in a Christian environment we must also pursue academic success and the improvement of our gifts, all to the glory of God. You can keep an eye on some of our projects on our Instagram page. One highlight this term was our older class of little van Goghs!
We have already memorised two Psalms this year (14 and 146) and you can hear the pupils’ wonderful singing on our Soundcloud. We have also been continuing our study of the 10 Commandments in our Catechism. We have reached the 5th Commandment which leads to much fruitful discussion. It is really great to be able to teach the Gospel and the Reformed faith to children from diverse backgrounds and we hope to continue to grow and expand to make this education available to all.
Our third annual Reformation Week took place at the end of October. Each year we host a party and go on a related school trip. We believe that this monumental history is essential for the next generation. Read more...
