From the Leadership Team
As Term 1 draws to a close, I imagine for many families there will be a slight sense of relief at the end of what has been yet another unpredictable and change filled season!
As a College, we are so thankful for the caring, compassionate and grace filled community culture that we enjoy at Genesis. Thank you for your contribution in continuing to foster and strengthen these cultural elements. I pray that you and your family are able to take some time across Easter to rest and recharge the batteries before the return to school on Tuesday 19 April.
Easter is a special event on the Christian calendar and it encourages us to reflect upon the sacrifice of Jesus as he was crucified on the cross for the sins of each one of us. When Jesus died on the cross, it looked as bad as it could possibly be. His followers at the time, would have felt hopeless, perhaps overwhelmed with the suffering and injustice associated with the crucifixion of Jesus. I am sure we can all relate to feeling a of lack of hope for the future in the midst of the global pandemic. What we know is that there is hope on the other side of the cross – the hope of the risen Jesus, the Saviour of the world. Even when things are not looking hopeful in our life – the story of Easter shows that we can find a beacon of hope even in uncertain times and we are reminded that God is in control, God has the answers that we need and God is a God of the miraculous.
I wish your family a safe and refreshing Easter break.
