School resumed for the third term on Thursday 9th April, after a short break in which we had time to stop, pray and reflect on this great feast of Easter.
We have now eight weeks of formal lessons, a number of co-curricular activities and other engagements, ahead of us before the final examinations.
Readings: Acts 10:34, 37-43; Colossians 3:1-4 or 1 Corinthians 5:6-8; John 20:1-9; Mark 16:1-8
"Christ indeed from death is risen, our new life obtaining."
In the first words of Genesis, God ends the reign of darkness and chaos and replaces that reign with dawn and order. So the first day came to be! Jesus rises in the morning on the first day after the Sabbath. Again God conquers darkness and chaos. Light and order reign. In John's gospel, the believers are called to silently contemplate the risen Lord. Mary Magdalene does not at first recognize Jesus and later Jesus has to show His wounds to the disciples before they acknowledge that it is the Lord.
Last update: The group from Dijon returned early in the afternoon of Saturday, thus bring an end to a very positive learning experience.
The last three days were also very full. On Thursday the group started off once more by attending two last language sessions and then dined at the school canteen. The school’s administration found our group to be very well prepared and felt that they should recognise this by giving each member of the group a certificate of excellence.
We are deeply honoured to have the opportunity to lead St Michael School’s community as it enters its 68th year of service. Through the years we have developed a strong appreciation for the holistic approach to education and we try our best to provide an outstanding opportunity for youths to grow and develop as mature Christian citizens.
"The function of a good book is to stand like a signpost directing the reader toward the Truth and the Life. That book serves best which early makes itself unnecessary, just as a signpost serves best after it is forgotten, after the traveler has arrived safely at his desired haven.
The work of a good book is to incite the reader to moral action, to turn his eyes toward God and urge him forward. Beyond that it cannot go."
