Activities at Adoration

April 28th, 2013

Over the past couple of weeks many different and exciting events have been happening at Adoration Centre.  I will try my best to cover all of them in one big blog.

One of our teachers invited went to a local hospital and invited some nurses to our school to do some medical tests on our students.  Each student received a little prick on one of their fingers and the blood was tested for different illnesses.  Randy and I showed the students how painful the procedure was going to be.

We recently had a Bible challenge with all the grades.  Each grade was given 5 questions to answer about different Bible stories.  It was very loud because each class was excited when another class got a correct answer.  However it was even more exciting to see the smiles on the faces when the students answered the questions correctly.

 A bunch of toys and puzzles were donated from various people in Hamilton, Ontario.  The Special Needs Director and the Kindergarten Director spent some time sorting out the toys and sharing them amongst those grades.

 Classtrips have been going on for the classes here at Adoration Christian Centre.  The Grade 4s went to Double Harest, an organization that has developed a farming community.  It has numerous vegatables, chickens and fishes growing on it.  The Grade 5 and 6s went downtown to the National Museum, where they learned about the history of their country.  The Grades 7 and 8s went to Fort Jacques and the Baptist Mission where they visited a museum and an old fort.  The Grades 2 and 3s will be going to the Sugar Cane Museum soon while the Kindergartens, the Special Needs class and the Grade are going to go to a playground.

Sowing some seeds!

April 22nd, 2013

“As for what was sown on good soil, this is the one who hears the word and understands it.  He indeed bears fruit and yields, in one case a hundredfold, in another sixty, and in another thirty”  Matt 13:23

Agriculture day is coming up and so this past month has been Agriculture month.  Earlier in the month a team from Faith Christian Reformed Church came to the school and taught the students a little bit about planting seeds.  They gave each student a pot and went through the process of sifting the dirt, adding in the fertilizer, planting the seeds and giving it water to grow.  Then they finished off the day with an assembly and a devotion on the verse above.

Praying that hearts are continually being watered, fertilized and growing for the Lord at Adoration.
