Adjustment to Weekly School Programme –

Lifeskills Programmes – Driving –

This year we celebrate our 10th year of partnership with local driving school Zebra School of Motoring. Many of our pupils have been able to leave MCC with their drivers license. 

They are currently offering a “Back to School” special with the following rates:

Half Course Package

$300.00

Covers:

Provisional lessons

15 driving lessons

1 Free car hire

 

Full Course Package

$600.00

Covers

Provisional lessons

30 driving lessons

2 Free car hires

 

The promotion runs until 30 September.

 

We have found that pupils can quite quickly complete the full recommended course in a relatively short space of time, so can be considered for those who are about to leave school. For more information, please refer to the attached letter.

 

Reflection:

“But what happens when we live God’s way? He brings gifts into our lives, much the same way that fruit appears in an orchard—things like affection for others, exuberance about life, serenity. We develop a willingness to stick with things, a sense of compassion in the heart, and a conviction that a basic holiness permeates things and people. We find ourselves involved in loyal commitments, not needing to force our way in life, able to marshal and direct our energies wisely.” Galatians 5:22-23
