Light a Candle
Ps 18:28: For thou wilt light my candle: The Lord my God will enlighten my darkness.
The Sedaven Primary School staff met this morning (4 January 2012) for the first staff meeting of the new year. The principal, Mrs L. van Schalkwyk, conducted a short worship which culminated in a beautiful candle lighting ceremony. This reminded the staff that our theme for the year is "Light a Candle!" and all of us were again inspired not only to light our our own candles at the Source of all light - Jesus Christ - but to also be instrumental in bringing the light of knowledge and salvation to all the children that will be in our classes this year.
After the devotion it was back to work. The emphasis was on planning the how to receive and register all the learners for the new year. We were informed that the school enrolment is 185 at the moment and that there are only a very few places left. This is good news. The staff were also informed that, for all practical purposes, all the outstanding fees of 2012 have been collected. This is wonderful and we thank our parents for their sacrifice and commitment to Adventist education!
