I want to extend a warm welcome to Morrison Academy Taipei. I am so excited to be starting this new school year with you and I am looking forward to seeing how God will work in and through our school community as we seek him this year.
As I transition to the role of Principal this year, I am reminded of the Vision Statement of Morrison Academy: “The vision of Morrison Academy is that every student will experience a quality, biblically-integrated education, so that each one will be equipped to impact the world dynamically for Christ.” This is our ultimate goal in teaching, coaching, counseling, serving, and equipping our students as we do each year, and this is why we exist as a school. Thank you for joining us and for supporting us as we seek to make this vision a reality in the lives of our students.
As we look ahead to the beginning of the school year, I know that there is much uncertainty in light of the current pandemic just as there has been throughout the last couple of years. In response to this, I want you to know that Morrison Academy does not take these realities lightly and we are committed to doing what is required to safely continue providing a quality, Biblically integrated education to every student. Thank you for your support and patience as we navigate these challenges.
I am so thankful to be a part of a school community that strives to put God first in all we do. I am also excited about our theme this year, which is “Refresh”, based on the story in John 4:13-14 that says, “Jesus answered, 'Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.’” I am excited for what lies ahead this year as we seek Jesus to refresh our hearts and minds, refresh our hopes and dreams, refresh our thinking and our relationships. Jesus came to earth for people just like us, in situations just like ours, where we are struggling to understand the uncertainties in our world. Today Jesus is speaking to us and inviting us to be refreshed in him. There is no other person, place, or thing that can truly refresh us, so I want to invite you to join me on this journey and to pray and ask Jesus to be our strength, to be our hope, and to refresh us.
I greatly appreciate your support and I look forward to working with you and your child this coming school year.
