You can get anywhere if you’re resilient.

House Jericho are improving Community Events in school. They are looking for Jericho volunteers so please let them know if you are willing to help. 

 

The three main improvements that they want to make this year are: 

  • To plan school events working collaboratively with House Sinai and the PTA
  • To advertise school and church events so that we have maximum participation 
  • To get all children involved with the planning process

The Story of Jericho

 

Jericho can be found in the book of Joshua. The book of Joshua could be a great script for an action-packed film. It’s filled with spies, surprise attacks, warfare, leaders and unusual battles.

The plot tells of how the Israelites conquered the land that God promised to their ancestors Abram (Genesis 12:7). Their parents had escaped from Egypt but had not followed God. So the whole generation that left Egypt had died in the desert, leaving the children- under Joshua’s leadership- to conquer the land of Canaan.

The Israelites had to defeat the cities of Canaan one by one, beginning with the famous battle of Jericho (Joshua 6).

The central hero is Joshua, he is resilient and absolutely loyal to God. This is why we say that House Jericho is LOYAL and RESILIENT.

Joshua 6

The people of Jericho were afraid because the Israelites were near. They closed the city gates and guarded them. No one went into the city and no one came out.

    Then the Lord said to Joshua, “Look, I have given you Jericho, its king, and all its fighting men. March around the city with your army once a day for six days. Have seven priests carry trumpets made from horns of rams and have them march in front of the Ark, on the seventh day march around the city seven times and have the priests blow the trumpets as they march. They will make one long blast on the trumpets. When you hear that sound, have all the people give a loud shout. Then the walls of the city will fall so the people can go straight into the city.”

Happy St Alban’s Day

Today is St Alban’s Day

Our school sets huge value on the quality of courage so let’s take a moment to think about St Alban’s courageous act.

St Alban is venerated as the first recorded Christian martyr in England. His death came as a result of him shielding a priest to whom he had given refuge. It is in the nature of this story that it concerns one who gave his life for his values and beliefs.
Though a legend the story embodies something of the vulnerability that is required if we are to act in courage. Alban quite literally cloaks himself with the garment of the one he seeks to protect and, in doing so, takes his place.
