In the book of Matthew, we read these words:

She will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel, which means God with us.

In this season of advent, we wait in anticipation of Christ.  His coming, is the reason for celebrating Christmas.  Jesus with us, is the greatest Gift of unfailing, unbeatable, and unstoppable love!  

As the year draws to a close, may I offer my grateful thanks to all parents for your generous support of the College, in so many ways.     

May the love, joy, and peace of this blessed season be yours, this Christmas, and always.

Ma te Atua tātou e manaaki – God bless
