Launch of Year 8 Christian Service Program

The 2018 Year 8 Christian Service Program is based around the Gospel values of selfless love. Throughout time there has always been the necessity for people to reach out and help those in need. To put others first is a wonderful selfless act and an impressive quality to have. It is something that we, as Christians, should strive to do. The Year 8 Christian Service Program is designed to challenge students to reach out to others in a number of ways. 

This program will focus mainly on family and the Corpus community. Students were asked to consider why kindness is not appreciated by people who attempt to give and receive selfless acts of love- unworthiness? Insecurity? Unfamiliarity? Suspicion?

Random acts of kindness are important because they eradicate modern fear driven associations with kindness being shared among the community. Each of us may feel discomfort with the idea of giving and even receiving a kind word or gesture, however, the more we expose one another to Jesus' commandments of love for God and for one another, the more familiar we are with living the Gospel. In the words of St Francis: "Preach the Gospel at all times. And if necessary, use words."

Therefore, it is less about what we say, but rather what we do as Christians which determines our connection to our faith. 

Every student in year 8 is required to complete a minimum of ten sections of the Living Like Jesus grid made available via One Note. Each section of the grid contains a particular service task which challenges students to actively serve others. Students are welcome to complete more than ten service tasks. As students complete the tasks they will need to complete each task with evidence of success. Students may use their iPad or portable device to collect this evidence appropriately. Images must contain the student performing the act of service. Photographs which do not feature the student will not be considered as appropriate evidence of a completed service task. 

Students have been encouraged to log on to their One Note drive to access the service grid and their reflection tasks. Their completed service journal is due on Friday of Week 7. 

Get snapping and spread the love, Year 8s!
