Heavenly Father, as we embark on a new academic year, we come before You with gratitude for the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead. We ask for Your guidance and blessings to encompass all who are part of this educational journey – students, parents, teachers, and school staff.

For the students, grant them the wisdom to learn, the curiosity to explore, and the perseverance to overcome obstacles. May they be inspired by the pursuit of knowledge and growth, and may their hearts remain open to the lessons that extend beyond textbooks.

For parents, provide them with patience and understanding as they support their children’s educational endeavours. Help them to nurture a loving and supportive home environment that encourages learning and fosters strong values.

Bless the teachers with the passion to educate, the ability to inspire, and the patience to guide their students along the path of discovery. May they find fulfilment in their vocation and continue to be a source of knowledge and inspiration to those they teach.

For school staff, grant them the strength and dedication to contribute to the smooth functioning of the educational institution. May their efforts behind the scenes create an environment conducive to learning and personal development.

We ask for Your protection over the school community, guarding against adversity and providing strength in times of challenges. May the bonds of camaraderie and respect flourish among all members, fostering a sense of unity and belonging.

As the academic year begins, we place our hopes and aspirations in Your hands, trusting that You will guide everyone through the paths of growth, understanding, and compassion. May the endeavours of everyone involved be marked by a genuine commitment to knowledge, service, and the well-being of one another. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
