Making Jesus Real – Week 7 POSITIVE

This week, we are learning more about the value of being POSITIVE.  Thinking positive thoughts and trying to see the best in a situation is called having a positive attitude. If we think positively, we are able to solve problems more quickly and learn to look at various aspects of life with positivity. Positivity assists children in being more resilient.

MJR teaches us to believe not only in God, but in ourselves, to look for the hero inside of each one of us.  If we have a positive attitude to life and the people around us, we will continue to grow and develop in so many ways. 

Positive thought lets us overcome mental and emotional barriers, and gives us the tools to manage them. It doesn’t mean ignoring them and pretending they’re not there. Being positive can help to make you a happier person and plays an important part in improving your mental health. 


Our Year 5 Mini Vinnies collected money for Project Compassion today through their St Patrick’s Day activities.  We had a great day, getting into the spirit of St Patrick’s Day, dressing in green, hosting a colouring-in competition, and decorating biscuits with green icing and rainbow sprinkles.  Thanks to everyone for generously donating to Project Compassion, so that we can assist those who need our help. 

Second Sunday of Lent 13th and 14th March


Biru 30, lives in a rural village in Jharkand State in India’s east. He lost mobility in one of his legs, after contracting polio as a child, which makes it difficult for him to walk. With your generous support, Biru was able to access an entrepreneurship and livelihoods development program, run by Caritas Australia’s partner, Caritas India. He gained the skills, support and encouragement he needed to establish his own bicycle repair business.

Now, Biru is able to provide a good life for his family – and an essential service to his community. He has discovered a sense of pride, confidence and hope which has inspired others living with a disability.
