Perseverance is about not giving up. It is a recognition that we have many troubles in life and things to overcome but Christians believe that nothing is over until the end and that if we have God for us then nothing can stand against us.
So here at Belgrave St. Peter's, we can say with St Paul, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” Our children are encouraged through their learning, not to give up, to persevere.
Christians believe that by a life time’s dedication to God we achieve an eternal reward, “Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.” as St Paul once again says.
