Presbyterian Church Schools' Resource Office Newsletter
I hope those of you who have had a break these school holidays have had time to be refreshed and are feeling re-energised for Term 3.
I have been in the Church Schools’ Resource Office role for two and a half months now and have thoroughly enjoyed and greatly appreciated visiting the Presbyterian schools around the country. In my visits I’ve been introducing myself to Principals, Chaplains and other teaching staff and generally getting a feel for what is happening in each school in regards to its special character. I have saved the best till last and will be visiting our two Hawkes Bay schools, Lindisfarne and Iona Colleges in week two of Term 3.
A warm welcome to the Presbyterian Church schools network to Rev Kirstie McDonald, Chaplain at Rangiruru Girls’ School in Christchurch and to Mrs Shannon Warren the new Principal at Iona College, who starts at the College this term.
Thank you all for your warm welcome and hospitality over this last term. I have loved hearing about the work you are doing in your schools and seeing your obvious passion and enthusiasm for it.
I look forward to working alongside you, supporting and resourcing you in my role.
This newsletter has stories about things that are happening around our schools, the Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa New Zealand and resources from further afield which may be of interest to you.
