September Letter from the Director

Psalm 139:23 (NLT) “Search me, O God, and know my heart, test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life.”

Be Seen

Be Seen 2At the beginning of a new year, I encourage you to think about seeing.   And first to look at yourself. Examine yourself through the lens of God. Look into yourself knowing that God sees you. One of the names of God revealed in the OT in the story of Hagar is El Roi, the God who sees. God sees you: your desires, dreams, disappointments, hopes, and temptations. Open yourself to be seen by God and have the courage to act on the things he points out in your lives.

 

Philosophy of Education at Wesley

We have a Philosophy of Education here at Wesley that underpins all we endeavor to do at School. I wanted to share parts of it with you month by month this year.

Wesley School is an academic learning community that challenges students to glorify God in every thought, word and deed.  Wesley is a community that emphasizes character development as well as academic excellence.  These ideals are realized by integrating a biblical view of life across all disciplines of learning – from sciences to fine arts, from humanities to theology.  Since all truth is God’s truth, we will not avoid the broad range of human knowledge, but will engage the respective disciplines at appropriate times and in the context of the truth found in the Bible.  We will not place any human philosophy above the truth of God’s Word.

We are an academic community that exists to support parents, who have the primary responsibility for the education of their children.  We believe that God will use our school and parents to aid students in becoming history makers to impact their world with insight, action and love.

We are a community that exists within the larger Indonesian community.  We will endeavor to engage the Indonesian community in ways that are beneficial to all and prioritize the understanding of Indonesian language and culture.

Clubs and Activities

Do you want to run a club or activity for students at Wesley? This might be cooking, choir, gymnastics, reading, art, chess, music lessons or any other thing you are interested in. If so please contact Mr. Heath, Mrs. Emma (Acting Elem. Principal, or Mr. Lucero (HS Principal). We are open to listen to all ideas. We want and appreciate your involvement in this. Clubs would run after school from 2:45 – 3:30 pm.

Thank you for a great start to school. We really appreciate all your support. If you have any comments or questions about the school please do not hesitate to speak to your teacher, a principal or myself.
