Mrs Clark is teaching the Preps how to use the Mac computer programs and Ms Weight helps us to choose the books we borrow each week. Thank you to Ms Weight and Mrs Clark, you’re awesome!!
Parenting with Power
Scripture of the week: “In your anger do not sin. Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry.” Ephesians 4:26
Stop the Intensity in Conflict Sometimes a child’s stubbornness or defiance is obvious. In those moments, stop dealing with the issue at hand and talk about the process of how you are relating. You may respond with: “I can tell you’re upset and it’s not good for us to continue until you settle down. You need to take a break and come back when you’re ready to continue talking about this.” Have the child sit in the hall or on the top step or some other boring place, not their bedroom, because they will find something to distract them from settling down. After the child has settled down, he or she needs to come back to you and talk about the problem calmly. If your child comes back without having a heart change, then send your child back again. It is important that you don’t get emotional yourself about this. Simply say something like, “Have you settled down yet?” or “Are you ready to talk calmly now?” It may take your child a while to settle down. Keep affirming your child by saying: “I can tell you’re not ready yet. The way you’re standing and the expression on your face all tell me that you still have a problem in your heart. I want you to go back until you’re ready to come out with a changed heart. I will be here waiting for you when you are ready.” When your child has settled down say, “It looks like you are ready to talk about this”, and continue to talk about the problem. Explain the appropriate behaviour, the importance of respectfulness and obedience. Talk about the correct responses and behaviours if he or she was angry. Strategy for the week: By enforcing a break, you can help your child change their heart. Don’t allow conflict to escalate into a battle. Stop the intensity with a break. It will not only help you stay calm but it will help your children develop some maturity about dealing with conflict. ~ In His service, Klaus Knobloch and Rosemary Whincop

How wonderful to think that because of Jesus’ death on the cross and our acceptance of Jesus as Saviour, we can speak with the King, we can enter His presence, know that we are welcome and that He has time for us. How amazing is that!! I could not imagine life without His presence. I am out of room. God bless and keep you safe and in His will this Easter and over the holidays.
As we come to the sad and joyous time of Easter, I thought I would share the following poem with you. I do not know the author. THE CROSS Two arms open wide Happy parenting. And so it is. Maintain good relationTwo sinners on each side ships. Bring heaven to earth. Fear prevents, faith prevails. Two eyes tearing God bless. True meaning of Easter. One heart grieving ~ Rhonda Bevan, Head of Secondary One grandiose plan One innocent man Nailed was He To a tree He suffered and bled So we would no longer be dead The King of Kings and Lord of Lords were just two of the names given to Him by Many who believed that He was!

He died for us for God did allow Oh how grateful we all are now All this love He now leaves us For this blessed hope in Jesus To abide in His ways for sure To believe in faith that’s pure To sacrifice His Life for all Was the greatest gift to all On this very truth and fact Only with faith can you act Primary Colours Assembly Faith in Him as Holy Lord The upper primary was able to celebrate and acknowlWith the Bible as your sword edge the efforts of our students at assembly this week when His death on the cross is key the swimming team were awarded their Primary Colours.

Obedience or Agreement? Quote from “Walk in Faith” by Ray McCauley If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword. For the mouth of the Lord has spoken. Isaiah 1:19-20 You cannot force people to be obedient. The story is told of the little boy who was standing up in the classroom. The teacher said, “Johnny, sit down or you will go to the headmaster!” Johnny sat down and thought to himself, “On the outside I’m sitting down but on the inside I’m standing up!” Many Christians are like that! However, God requires obedience not sacrifice. If we are willing and obedient then we will eat the good of the land. Obedience is easy when we are enthusiastic about what we are doing. Let me take as an example my son Joshua. Most days it is quite a task to get him out of bed and ready for school early in the morning. But do you know that the morning that the family was leaving for a holiday in Disneyland Josh was the first out of bed? His enthusiasm spoke for itself! In the same manner, when we are passionate about the call of God upon our lives, then obedience will follow. Allow the zeal of God to ignite you! Then be obedient to the Spirit of God’s prompting. Submission is tested when you don’t agree - up until that point it is merely agreement. Obey God even if you don’t feel like it!

Year 12 students Nitika Balaram, Jade Magee and Nick Norman are Club Red Youth Ambassadors for the Australian Red Cross Blood Service. They have taken the initiative and responsibility of raising awareness of the ongoing need for blood donations in Australia. As one in three Australians will need blood and only one in every thirty donates blood, eligible students, staff members and parents are encouraged to donate blood at the Robina Blood Donor Centre. The King’s Club Red is competing against other local schools on the Gold Coast for the highest amount of blood donations. If you are interested, we have established a King’s community group named 4RKCG that you can donate to. Do something special and give blood today because an hour of your day can save three lives. ~ Nitika Balaram, 12Z
