  • Staff and students must not return to school or work until they receive a negative COVID-19 result and are symptom-free.

  • Staff and students who have had a COVID-19 test must complete the COVID-19 Te...

Once again, our region has been inundated with rain and flooding.

While NCS will be fully operational tomorrow, we understand that there may still be roads impacted by flooding. We ask that parents/carers please check local information and live traffic in the morning and make safe decisions for your families in relation to getting to and from school.

If you feel it is unsafe, you are encouraged to please keep your children at ho...

Dear Parents/Carers,

As I am writing this letter, there are two days of Term 2 still remaining before your children commence a three week holiday break. (Of course, all staff will participate in our one week July Staff Conference during the third week of the break.) And what an amazing term it has been! In fact, the 2020 year thus far has seen our school community (and our entire global community) navigating our way through wh...

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:

Our uniform...

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. After careful consideration, I also conveyed the news that Nowra Christian School planned to make all necessary arrangements for the return of all of our students on t...

Dear Parents/Carers,

As most of you would now be aware, the NSW Premier announced on Monday that all NSW Government Schools have been informed that they are to make the necessary arrangements for the return of all students to an onsite lesson delivery mode as of Monday of next week (i.e. 25 May). Although some may have been surprised that all students would be returning this early, the NSW Premier and educational authorities h...

Dear Parents/Carers,

Once again, I would wish to convey the gratitude of our entire staff team for the manner in which you have continued to provide your support and encouragement as we have embarked on the careful process of gradually transitioning back to an onsite learning model. My previous letter...

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...
