Education has come a long way since Pink Floyd captured the 1920’s in their song, Another Brick in the Wall.
Enjoy your education in 2012, engage in all of the academic activities presented to you and remember:
Your time at school may be some of the best years of your life.
To al those people that cellebrate Christmas, I hope your time over the holiday season is relaxing and enjoyable. Spare a thought for those people away from home, perhaps in hospital, overseas as part of the deployed forces or at work in a mine.
Christmas is a time when Christians remember the birth of Christ in a small stable in Bethlehem. Surrounded by animals in a cot with straw, the child called Jesus safe in his mothers arms.
Christmas has special meaning for many people. Two of my favourite places are shown above. The interior of St Paul’s Cathedral, Sale where as a young person I served on Christmas day at the altar. The other is the Uniting Church in Hopetoun where Christmas 2011 will be a special day and I send my best wishes.
