Our Christian Value of HOPE is an intrinsic part of all aspects of school life for staff and children alike. At St Mark’s we seek to provide children with high quality education rooted in Christianity that will support them throughout their lives enabling them to ‘Live Life in all it’s fullness’ John 10:10 our Trust mission statement.
Each Core Christian Value is represented to the children in a range of ways eg. A dictionary definition, the reason why we have chosen that value, which bible story it links to, children’s voice showing what that value means to them and through art work.
Hope - Bethel age 10
43 A woman was there who had been bleeding for 12 years. She had spent all her money on doctors, but no doctor was able to heal her. 44 The woman came up behind Jesus and touched the edge of his coat. At that moment, her bleeding stopped. 45 Then Jesus said, “Who touched me?”
All the people said they had not touched Jesus. Peter said, “Master, the people are all around you and are pushing against you.”
46 But Jesus said, “Someone did touch me! I felt power go out from me.” 47 When the woman saw that she could not hide, she came forward, shaking. She bowed down before Jesus. While all the people listened, she told why she had touched him. Then, she said, she was healed immediately. 48 Jesus said to her, “Dear woman, you are healed because you believed. Go in peace.”
