THIS WEEK’S MEMORY VERSE
God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.
1 John 5:11-12
Tena koutou whanau ma – warm greetings to everyone
It is hard to believe we are at the end of term and that the end of the school year is just around the corner. The year has been very full and we have many great testimonies about the goodness and provision of God in this place and in our people. Notably, the new building has progressed well and the major construction is completed. Fitting out, drainage, final touches and land-scaping are in view now and we expect that the project will be completed on time. The plan is to purchase the new furniture and equipment soon and have it set up before the end of the year, ready for day one 2024.
With that in mind our proprietors and Board are planning for a combined celebration over Anniversary Weekend (Friday 26th – Monday 29th January), marking the 40th Anniversary of Heart of the North Church and the 35th Anniversary of Kaikohe Christian School. This celebration will begin with the official opening of our new building. More information about this event will follow next term.
At this time of year we open up enrolments for the following year and therefore invite whanau who are considering Kaikohe Christian School for their young ones to make contact with the school or website to access Enrolment Applications. Currently we have 5 vacancies which are filling fast. At the end of the year when we farewell some of our seniors there will be approximately another 7. Enrolments are accepted in the order that applications are received so our recommendation is that you get in earlier rather than later.
Romans 14:5-6 One person esteems one day as better than another, while another esteems all days alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind. (6) The one who observes the day, observes it in honor of the Lord. The one who eats, eats in honor of the Lord, since he gives thanks to God, while the one who abstains, abstains in honor of the Lord and gives thanks to God.
Kia pai o koutou hararei
Enjoy the holidays with whanau and friends

WHAT ARE ATTENDANCE DUES?
The Ministry of Education does not fund building related costs at our School. Attendance Dues are only used to pay for building related costs. They can not be used for any other purposes. Paying Attendance Dues is a condition of enrolment for all students attending our School. Attendance Dues are compulsory – there is a legal requirement for parents and caregivers to pay Attendance Dues under the Education and Training Act 2020. They are not a donation.

“There’s a season for everything and a time for every matter under the heavens: a time for giving birth and a time for dying, a time for planting and a time for uprooting what was planted, a time for killing and a time for healing, a time for tearing down and a time for building up, a time for crying and a time for laughing, a time for mourning and a time for dancing, a time for throwing stones and a time for gathering stones, a time for embracing and a time for avoiding embraces, a time for searching and a time for losing, a time for keeping and a time for throwing away, a time for tearing and a time for repairing, a time for keeping silent and a time for speaking, a time for loving and a time for hating, a time for war and a time for peace.” Ecclesiastes 3:1
“Love is patient, love is kind, it isn’t jealous, it doesn’t brag, it isn’t arrogant, it isn’t rude, it doesn’t seek its own advantage, it isn’t irritable, it doesn’t keep a record of complaints, it isn’t happy with injustice, but it is happy with the truth.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-6
