Winter Recess!

By Heidi Blokland

Ask just about any student what their favourite thing at school is and their answer will be ….. recess!

Recess is even better when there is snow!!

At Timothy Christian School, we think recess is very important. Getting fresh air, having space to run around in, and being able to be as loud as you want are just some of the benefits of recess.

More importantly, we think recess is a great way to build community.

Students can play with people in other classes. They can use their imaginations. They can be a blessing to someone.

Sadly, this doesn’t always happen. Sometimes community is broken during recess time. When community is broken we need to apologize and try to find a new way to be together. We are thankful that with Jesus there is always forgiveness. The very whiteness of the snow reminds us of grace and restoration. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow.” Isaiah 1:18

We love snowy recesses. We love the chance to play and work together to build community!

May we always live our lives in the hope and forgiveness of Jesus Christ, knowing that in him we are whiter than snow!
