On Monday Room 12 had their assembly, if you missed this we shared a reflection on the gifts we have in Room 12 and qualities that we all have.
God of love and of life, let us take time to look deep within ourselves and discover the gifts you have blessed us with. May we take the time to direct our lives in a way that best uses our own unique combination of gifts. May our education help us discover where our strengths and interests lie. May our faith guide us in realizing our gifts. May we always be open to the direction of the Spirit and never forget the love you have for each of us.Give us, O Lord, the perception we need to look within ourselves and discover the beauty and gifts we possess. Give us the courage to show others the talents they have. Help us serve others in the community and in so doing build up your kingdom. We ask this through Jesus, our Lord. Amen
At the start of the year as a way of getting to know each other we shared information about ourselves and talked about our qualities that we bring to our class.
We all have individual or sometimes similar qualities that we need to treasure and celebrate. These can change, develop and grow during our lifetime.
When we first started talking about qualities we had had a list of words that we found were common for all of us.
Mr Norman challenged us by introducing some new qualities that we hadn’t heard of or were not too sure what they meant. We learnt what these words were and meant and discovered that some of the children in our class have aspects of these qualities. Here are some of the qualities of children in Room 12.
