end of your Prize Giving 2014
School had their end-of-year prize-giving on 29 November 2014. During the year there
are Award Assemblies at the end of each of the 4 terms. The final prize-giving recognizes
not only academic and sports results but also those who have made a difference and who
been chosen for the Good Fellowship Award. The guest of honour this year was Pastor Didier
Schott from Paris. He has a branch of DSS at his church and has been involved in Christian
education for 25 years. In his speech he related the touching story of Enzo, a little
gypsy boy who recently died of cancer. Pastor Schott related how he ministered to the boy
and experienced how God's grace gave him such comfort. Enzo testified about the Lord to
his family members and helped some of them turn to Christ in repentance. So too, children
can be a blessing to their families.
For the first time there were also prizes for FAST students.
Finishing and Advanced Student Training, established in January 2014, is a new department
of Domino Servite School. FAST creates study opportunities which assist young men whose
education has suffered through a lack of parental guidance, involvement in criminal
activities or abuse of drugs/alcohol from a young age. There are currently thirteen
students enrolled in the program. Courses for which the students are registered include:
High School (Grade 10, 11 &12), Journalism, Health and Safety, Engineering, Teaching
and Accounting. Miss Newlands had previously given this message of inspiration to the
young men of FAST, "Never forget, God always gives hope, a new life and a second
chance to those who seek Him."
To close off, Rev Erlo Stegen gave a message from God's Word.
