FRIENDSHIP is a very important Christian Value and one that children can relate to through their everyday experiences. The bible tells us that Jesus was a friend to all, regardless of who they were. He taught them that God is our friend and wants us to be like Him in our friendships with others.
The children have thought about what friendships are, what a good friend is and how to be a good friend to create their class ‘friend-ships’.
Bless my life with the gift of friendship,
For those who have chosen to be my friend,
I am grateful,
Let our love, respect and affection for each other flourish.
Make me a good friend, one who is loyal and caring and ready to forgive.
To you who are our truest friend I pray.
