THOUGHT OF THE WEEK

Today is the celebration of the life of St Catherine of Alexandria, of who our school is named after. If you don’t know anything about her life, she became a Christian at the age of 14 and was martyred only 4 years later at the age of 18 for standing for what she believed in. She could’ve taken the easy option due to a fear of failure but she didn’t, she chose to stand up for what she believed in despite the risk. We often reason ourselves out of doing things that scare us out of a fear of failing, because we know logically it is a possibility. We lean too much on our own understanding as the verse says above, and not enough on faith.

 

CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK

As we remember St Catherine this week, our challenge is to let her daring and bold years as a teenager, encourage us to still have that attitude in our later years; to be the risk taker; to stand up for what we believe in even if there is a possibility it could go wrong. Take on that challenge, do the thing that scares you, risk failing…because maybe you won’t fail at all and maybe you’ll achieve the very thing you’ve always dreamt of.

 

STAFF QUOTE OF THE WEEK

This week’s quote comes from Suzanne Monks!

“Don’t let others tell you what you can’t do. Don't let the limitations of others limit your vision. If you can remove your self-doubt and believe in yourself, you can achieve what you never thought possible.”
