Dear Parents/Carers

It has been wonderful to see our students return to school this week. Many seem very happy to see their classmates and have returned with an eagerness to continue their learning. The transition back to full-time face-to-face learning has been relatively smooth. However, there has been some confusion over uniform requirements as we move into the colder months. I would like to clarify a few things:

Dear Parents and Carers,

In my letter, written to all parents and carers last week, I indicated that we had received communication from the NSW Premier in relation to a proposed full-time return to school for all Government School children as of Monday, 25 May.

Dear Parents/Carers,

We thank you for your support and patience over the past couple of days while we have had the school closed.

As you know, this was for precautionary measures so a staff member could seek COVID-19 testing. We are very pleased, and thankful to God, to report that this staff member has now been given the all clear, following COVID-19 testing. As a result, we are also very pleased to announce that we will be r...

Dear Parents/Carers,

I am writing to inform you that Nowra Christian School will transition entirely to remote learning from tomorrow, Wednesday 1 April. This is necessary while a staff member seeks testing for COVID-19, following their contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 outside of our school community.


The school has sought advice from NSW Health and, although they did not mandate a closure, the School Board and Leaders...
