Evan Barnes, Year 6 Teacher
Year 5 and 6 are richly blessed! In a year of cancellations and postponements, Year 5 and 6 were given the opportunity to travel to Bathurst for their goldfields camp. While no one struck it rich, a few gold flakes were found and we returned home with many treasures. Treasured memories of gold panning, blacksmithing and bushwalking; treasured memories of growing new friendships while strengthening old ones; treasured memories of adventuring, problem solving and team work. Most importantly, a few treasures were stored in heaven where they are safe from destruction, theft and loss, kept by our Saviour, Jesus Christ.
Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.Matthew 6:19-21
