Romans 15:2 “Each of us should please our neighbours for their good, to build them up.”
The JKCS Grade 8 students for their second Cards of Courage · Cards of Encouragement project enthusiastically made 100 Valentine’s Day cards, and our ESS students also weighed in with an additional 27 cards, to send over to the elderly residents at Thornebridge Gardens on 6th Street and 8th Avenue in New Westminster. The Visual Arts students added in another 40 Valentine’s cards for the essential workers there; a grand total of 167 cards of love and encouragement were presented as a way to please our neighbours.
Here is their response:
A big THANK YOU from the Residents & Staff at Thornebridge Gardens Retirement Residence
We would like to extend our gratitude to your students at John Knox Christian School for creating such wonderful Valentine’s Day cards.
We can tell that your students are very caring and talented as well. Keep up the great work!
The staff and residents have truly been blessed by your kind gesture.
Two members of our Dining room staff would like to personally thank John Knox Christian School for their pretty Valentine’s day cards.
Thank you kindly,
