Making Jesus Real

St Joseph's School Waroona

Making Jesus Real

Our school embraces the Making Jesus Real (MJR) programme, although, it is less of a programme and more of a way of life. We seek to look for Jesus in ourselves and those around us. We want to foster a relationship with Jesus this is real and relevant to our daily lives.

We believe that we are the image of Jesus to those around us. We are Jesus' representatives and our actions should reflect his values. Jesus taught that we are part of his family and the way we treat other people should be the same way we would treat Jesus if he was standing next to us.

We strive for the values of:

- care and compassion
- respect for ourselves and others
- honesty
- trustworthiness
- understanding
- tolerance
- inclusion

MJR has a simple message - Jesus is part of our lives and can change the way we live and we can make Jesus live through our actions and words. An important aspect of MJR is learning how to recognise God Moments in encounters with our friends, a cheerful greeting using a person's name, a smile, a wink of encouragement, an offer of a helping hand, or an unexpected compliment. MJR leads us to be 'winners and grinners' rather than 'moaners and groaners', to look for the positives in each day and to be sure to let others know how much we appreciate them in our lives.

  • At least twice a term, our school community chooses someone to receive the Making Jesus Real Award. It could be a student, a staff member, or a parent. The winner will  be someone who reflects the values listed above and is an image of Jesus in everything they do. They are able to take Josephine the Bear home for two weeks as a reward for demonstrating such worthy values.
