Dear Friends in Christ,
“The lot is fallen unto me in a fair ground * yea, I have a goodly heritage.” These sentiments expressed in Psalm 16, remind us of the wonderful sense of history we enjoy as it endears in us a sense of appreciation for life with all of its joys and complexities. Children need to embrace this attitude for they too possess a mind, a body and a soul; all need nurturing! St. Gabriel’s, being the only Anglican school in the Diocese of Barbados provides such nurturing, as we educate the whole child for a more moral life as they continue this goodly heritage. This is grounded in our faith which provides the foundation for everything we do.
Christ illuminates learning and life at this wonderful school. From preschool through to graduation, students in St. Gabriel’s school grow in faith and grace, achieve more in school and life, develop creativity and character, and feel welcomed and cherished.
This exposure happens through daily devotions either in the school’s auditorium or in the class room which is led by teachers and students alike. Additionally, the children have the opportunity to worship at least thrice yearly at the St. Paul church located on Bay Street, for special services. These services are held on Ash Wednesday which marks the beginning of the Lenten season during which time focus is place on becoming a better person through sacrifice and giving; at Easter when we recall the sacrifice and giving of Our Lord; and, at Ascension when we put focus on Christ going to heaven to prepare to receive all believers at His return.
As we acknowledge that children are our gifts from God, it cannot be emphasised enough how valuable it is for them to have the spiritual foundation or, as the Psalmist calls it, a fair ground and a goodly heritage. Knowing and appreciating this, we therefore invite you to prayerfully consider St. Gabriel’s school. We understand that parents are the primary educators of their children in various areas including that of faith. As such, we look forward to partnering with you in the formation of your children.
Yours In Christ
