Secondary School Highlights – Your Word is my light 

Genesis Christian College School motto 

Psalm 119:105 

Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path 

From its very inception, the school motto has been ‘Your Word is my light’. For 30 years we have remained true to this ‘guiding light’ for choosing a path for Genesis. We are thankful for God’s blessing as we have attended to the Word, and the directions we should take.  

Walk in the Light is how we speak about the character of the Genesis student. The one sentence pitch being- Grow, Give and Connect with Conviction 

Character is grown as we Grow with Conviction, as we Give with Conviction, as we Connect with Conviction. 

Conviction describes the basis of our decision making; the choices we make moment by moment. Conviction reminds us that we are responsible for those choices, and that right choices are what we all want to make, but sometimes stumble over.  

In the face of difficult circumstances our Conviction is the moral compass of life. In the good times, Conviction is the compass that leads us to be grateful. 

God’s Word is the true North point for our moral compass. It is the light that shines on a path to follow, a path that is rich and rewarding. Conviction needs to be deeply rooted in an understanding of who we are in God and what His purposes for us now and into the future entail. 

The Bible tells us: 

  • We are shaped and gifted: we need to Grow in all spheres of life 
  • We are to Serve: we need to Give in a way that makes a difference in this world 
  • We are a body: we need to Connect to each other as if family 
  • We are formed for faith: we need to exercise Conviction
