In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit …
At the end of this school year we give thanks to God:
For all the teaching and learning
that has taken place in our school,
both in and out of the classroom,
For the talents and gifts that have been shared
and the challenges that have been faced;
For the burdens that have been lifted
and the hurts that have been healed;
For the respect and care that has been given.
We give thanks for the friendships that have just begun
and for those that have grown.
For the faith that has been lived in our daily struggles,
For the hope that has lifted our hearts on the dark days,
And for the love that has kept us going.
We give thanks for the community that we are,
and we ask you Lord -
Bless our students, staff, community and teachers.
May your Spirit inspire them with confidence and calmness
and summer renewal and excitement.
Bless our families as we take our holidays,
may our time together leave us with memories to cherish.
Pour out your love on us that we
may return renewed and refreshed
to continue our journey together.
We make this prayer through Christ
our Lord. Amen.
In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit – let us offer each other a sign of peace and blessing.
