The Hope Tour - Building resilience in our young people
The Year 7 students were fortunate to experience the 'Hope Tour' who came to our College on Monday afternoon during periods 7 and 8.
The group performed songs and dances, and told stories, all with the message of HOPE. The purpose of the tour was to engage our students; making them aware of how building our resilience comes from firstly building resistance, being grateful for what we have and also learning to ask for help when we need support.
They incorporated the message from the Apostle Paul in his letter to the Corinthians; how even though he went through some trials and hard times, he relied on God for his strength and building of resilience. From Romans 8:28: "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to His purpose".
We were also blessed to have a visit from 'TIMOMATIC', who performed a couple of his songs. The students really enjoyed his message and performance, and judging from the level of participation of our students, we believe the message was successfully conveyed to all who attended.
