The Apostle Paul tells his readers to be thankful in all circumstances (I Thessalonians chapter 5 verse 18). Christians believe that God loves and cares for them in many different ways in all aspects of their life. They know that their response to this provision should be one of thankfulness and praise.
We look at the following issues: How do we encourage an appreciative and thankful attitude in all members of our school community? How does the school raise consciousness of being thankful for those things we often take for granted? How do we encourage children to show gratitude in practical ways? How do we give thanks for new members of our school community? (eg. Is there a special welcoming service for reception children or new staff etc? )
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever. 1Chronicles 16 v34
