Newsletter – December 2015

Tuesday, 1st December, 2015

Dear Parent/Carer,

From September to date we have all engaged in about 65 school days of intense efforts to both motivate and inspire the next generation. I hope this collective effort has been a worthwhile and fulfilling experience with you; as it has been with me. With this in mind, a part of the scriptures that comes to mind and that has inspires me to seek the LORD, is Psalm 50 and I wish to share this with you all. It says,

‘Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God has shined. Our God shall come, and shall devour before him it shall be very tempestuous round about him. He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people. Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice. And the heavens shall declare his righteousness: for God is judge himself. Selah.’- (verses 2 to 6)

Now, that we are at the stage of bringing closure to a process before breaking up for the festive season and the end of a calendar year, we of ZCA C.i.C will be ending the autumn term on Friday the 11th of December; and then an award ceremony on the next day between 12:00-15:00 hours. We will have a dress rehearsal at 11:00 am, i.e. before the main event. Please be prompt.

As things stand, we would continue to look forward to the next fortnight and the opportunities that will present themselves to us in order to further the purposes of Jesus Christ here on earth.

Compliments of the season!

Newsletter – October 2015

Monday, 19th October, 2015

Dear Parent / Carer,

The new academic year took off with a bang as we are now in the process of rounding down learning activities for a week’s break as we see darker and shorter days appear with the change in time for those of us in the UK. It is important that I let you know that we of ZCA C.i.C have particularly struggled with keeping our commitment to ensure that academic balance is achieved by the half term break.

As writing this newsletter, no pupil has reached the half term target of completing 10 PACEs, checked and tested to date. The reason for this is clear, without parents making remittance to our bankers at the start of an academic year or by the 1st of every month, we would not be in position to order and procure the necessary workbooks for these goals to be reached.

We are now breaking up, this autumn, for the half term at 18:00 hrs on Thursday the 22nd of October to resume on 16:00 hrs on Wednesday the 4th of November. With regards to the forgone discuss, please let us have a change of heart for the 1st of November, by ensuring that the ZCA account is credited to procure paces for intensive learning, i.e. in the run up to the end of term by 3rd week in December.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Kayode Aganna

Newsletter – August 2015

Sunday, 30th August, 2015

Dear Parent/Carer,

As I write this newsletter to you, I anticipate a sense of divine purpose that is being unfolded but not necessarily knowing the modalities of how it will take place. Please join your faith with mine in absolute trust in God, knowing fully well that He who began a good work in us will be faithful to complete it – i.e. Until the day of Jesus Christ [right up to the time of return], developing that good work and perfecting and bringing it to full completion in you (Philippians 1:6- amp).

The holidays are coming to an end and a new academic year is upon us providing the opportunity to deepen our ability to perceive good in all that we do and in our child(ren) as well. Preliminary warm up activities will include a ‘Film & Variety’ Night on Saturday the 5th of September at 8 Coltsfoot Green from 16:00 hrs. Then our ‘After-school’ Club tuition services will commence fully; starting the week of 14th September on Wednesday at the Holy Cross Hall at 16:00 hours.

Now, that your children have done their diagnostics tests, it is needful to remind you of your financial obligations to the company, i.e. to enable us their PACEs before they start on 14th September.

Please ensure remittance to our bankers whose details appear below by the first week in September.

As a parent partner, I wish to remind you of the important role you play as one who influences your child/children and the next generation, positively for Christ. I guess by now, you are more than fully persuaded that this call to duty i.e. to be a faithful stewards, is more than just a weekly, Sunday School event; but as you have realised, a concerted and deliberate effort and attempt must be made everyday, to ensure that the ground gained in the hearts and souls of our young ones do not come to waste.

We of Zion Christian Academy C.i.C, are also packaging a ‘Youth Summer Holiday’ Club event from the 3rd to the 17th of August. More details can be found on our website: www.zionchristianacademy.org. We require a cash commitment of £20 per child to be paid as a deposit that will enable us to commence our arrangements. Please continue to pray along with us, that God’s good pleasure towards Zion in all respect will be realised in bringing many sons [matured-believers] to glory.

I, on behalf of the staff and volunteers of ZCA, look forward to receiving you at our dress rehearsal at 12:00 noon on Saturday the 11th of April – The Holy Cross, Church Hall, Purway Close, Luton. Your prompt arrival will serve as means for good preparation for the ceremony which is planned to commence at 13:00 hrs and onwards.
