Our Gospel value this term is THANKFULNESS.  We want to raise our awareness about the simplicity but importance of saying thank you and being thankful!

What would you like to say thank you for today?

Who would you like to thank?

What has been a blessing today?

What are you grateful for?

I wonder how many comments of gratitude we will have added to this post by the end of the term?


Miss Costa shared the prayer with the teachers last night.  I thought it was perfect for our Gospel Value this term so I wanted to share it with all of you too…

God of Life, the light of your grace fills our days.  We give thanks for all the daily blessings we take for granted: water and bread; conversations and sharing ideas; morning and evening; family and friends.  Your love fills every moment.  May our lives quietly give thanks to you day after day.  through Christ, our Lord.  Amen.
