On behalf of LESNW and all who attended the meeting thank you to Angela Branford, the staff and students of Calvary Lutheran School for the warm welcome and hospitality shown to everyone on the day. We were able to experience the special bond between and sense of belonging of all members of the community. Hearing students talk so fondly about learning and their engagement in school, as they led tours of the school, was both a privilege and pleasure and spoke of the heart of the Calvary community, that being the students.
Fin Klein provided the ideal setting for us to be able to stop in the hurriedness of our daily life, to ‘dwell on the Word’. The reflection was on Mark 10: 17-31.
It was wonderful to have both Mark Rathjen and Kathryn Krieg present at the gathering. Both were acknowledged and thanked for their faithful, dedicated and selfless leadership and service to Lutheran education over many years. We wish them well as they pursue new and different pathways in the future. Unfortunately, Darren Stevenson was unable to attend so there was no opportunity in this gathering to acknowledge him and his service to Lutheran education.
The Term 1 meeting of Principals & Directors in 2020 is scheduled for Friday 14 February at Endeavour College.
