2 Uniforms Transition Enrolments and Interviews Interviews for next years Transition students will be held later this term. Karyn Tapera will be contacting you soon about an interview time. Please advise anyone you know who intends to enroll a Transition student for 2011 to contact the office as soon as possible. Canberra Trip and Middle School Camp We are currently having difficulties once again with shoes and jackets. All students are to wear black shoes all the time, every day, except for Fridays when Middle School must wear white, and Year 5/6 may bring other shoes to change into if they wish. Middle School students in particular are frequently wearing non-uniform jackets. Please ensure they have their uniform jackets available every day. We do understand occasional problems and ask you send a note if this is the case. At the moment breaches in uniform regulations seem to be choice rather than legitimate prob lems. With Middle School, detentions will be given if students continue to breach the uni form Policy. Students are looking forward to this trip in September. Parents please remember an instalment of $400 was due on 22 July. The final instalment is due 20 August. A camp for students not going on the trip has been planned for 79 September at Glen Helen Resort. Information will come home next week. The cost will be $160, payable before the students leave. For Your Reflection.. Australia has quite a history of public prayer. Here is a story from our more recent past, showing how important prayer is to Christians in Australia . . . . . In May 1988, a new Parliament House was to be opened in Canberra. A leak from Canberra suggested that there would be no prayers said at the opening ceremony. This prompted the largest prayer meeting in our countrys history. Christians came from the furthest reaches of Australia, until 50,000 had gathered. They carried the written prayers of another 65,000 Australians who couldnt be there themselves. They came because they felt that the opening of the new Parliament House was the beginning of a new phase in Australias history, one that should not begin without prayer. Those 50,000 Christians marched around the new Parliament House until they formed a complete circle 3.5 km around, 20 deep in places. They joined hands and prayed as one voice. The day of the official opening of Parliament House by the Queen, saw fewer people turn up than had come for the unofficial opening before the King of Kings. Now, in 2010, we are about to elect a new House of Parliament to rule over this nation, a house built of people, not of stone. Lets not open it without prayer. Lets not begin this new phase of our history without seeking the face of Almighty God and acknowledging Him in every part of the life of this nation, especially the leadership. Lets pray often leading up to the election, committing the outcome, and this nation, to the God who has had His hand on it since the beginning of time.
