Perseverance is needed when standing firm in the face of any difficulty. It’s the special gift that we have when life is difficult or painful that helps us not to give up. Difficulties might include hardship, persecution or scorn, although we hope these difficulties do not arise in our school. We use it more in the context of ‘keeping going’ and ‘not giving up’.
Why did the Church Council choose this Christian value?
‘Because Jesus always said to try our best.’ (Y4 Church Council member)
Talk about perseverance together…
- How can we show perseverance in school?
- How can we show perseverance in home, or in other situations?
- Talk about a time when you showed perseverance.
‘Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.’
