Term 2, Week 6

My name is Matt King and I will be teaching 3A for the remainder of the year.
 
I studied at USQ Springfield in the first year that it opened (2006), majoring in Physical Education. I grew up in Redbank Plains and went to Kruger State School and Kruger Baptist Church as a child. I played Rugby League for the Redbank Plains Bears until I was 18. I have lived in the area for most of my life and am therefore very passionate about my local community.
 
I began my teaching career at Springfield Lakes State School in 2010, teaching Years 2-6 with Education Queensland. I have also worked at Camira State School and Fernbrooke State School.
 
I have always wanted to work in a Christian School, and I feel that it is a dream come true. I look forward to implementing my faith into my teaching. I am passionate about the message of Jesus and I know that he is the way, the truth, and the life. I want to pass on the good news to as many people as possible because it has transformed my life, and I know it has the power to change the lives of others also.
 
In my spare time I like to read autobiographies, watch movies, hike and run. I am a massive supporter of the NRL and my favourite team is the Sydney Roosters. I try to watch as many games as possible.
I have learned from experience that teaching involves strong partnerships with other staff, parents and carers. I believe such partnerships are vital to achieve spiritual and academic growth in students.
 
I look forward to meeting you over the coming days and weeks. Please feel free to come and say “Hello”.

Devotion – How To Have Peace?

Devotion – How To Have Peace?

Jesus said His peace is a gift. That means you don’t have to work for it and you cannot earn it. You cannot psych yourself up for it, and you cannot try really hard to obtain it. No, it’s a gift you must accept by faith. Jesus also said that His peace is unique from what the world provides. In the last 3,500 years, the world has only been free of war for 286 of them—that’s less than 9 per cent. This world’s peace doesn’t last.
