Microsoft word - handbook a5.docChengelo Primary Pupil & Parent Handbook I would like to give you a warm welcome to Chengelo School. I trust that, with parent, pupil and school working together, we wil together enable your child to develop physical y, emotional y, spiritual y and academical y. Chengelo School is a Christian school. It was begun in 1985 by the Mkushi Christian Fel owship and from those smal beginnings it has grown to what it is today. We give thanks to God for his wonderful work here and you can learn more about this beginning in Section C. Chengelo seeks to appoint born-again, committed Christian teachers to its staff and we aim to underpin everything we do in the Christian faith. We recognise that as God is the creator of al things, our work with numbers, language, science, art or whatever it may be is grounded in our understanding of Him. We encourage the children to develop in their understanding of the Christian faith and this happens through times of prayer in class and in the hostel, through Sunday events such as King’s Kids, through Religious Education lessons and, for older pupils, through voluntary discipleship classes. We believe that a person makes their own individual response to the cal ing of Jesus Christ and it is not the responsibility of anyone at Chengelo to make a pupil into a Christian. But it is important to realise that even very young children do make their own commitment, even when there is no commitment This booklet is written to give you information about how the school works. The first section deals with information needed immediately, whilst Section B contains information for pupils and Section C gives general details about the running of the school. Should you ever have any questions that are not answered in this booklet, please do come into school and ask.
