The Preservation of Innocence
St Sava College Opens
The sight of our first student cohort running around, laughing and playing in the company of newly found friends only minutes after the conclusion of formalities on opening day, put smiles on every onlooking face. Children, completely at home, innocent, loved and secure. In a sense, it was an image of fulfilment even before embarking on their “Path to Life”. In a way it is like reading the Old Testament only after you have read the New Testament, after you have touched Christ. One onlooking parent remarked quietly, “Let’s pray their innocence is preserved for as long as possible at this Orthodox school!” Indeed, let us pray, fervently! And let us do everything we can as parents, educators and friends to help our children grow in wisdom, to take on responsibility, to overcome adversity but to always maintain their innocence, their purity of heart and mind.
