Duke of Ed adventures at The Castle

On Thursday 11 May Mr Clarke, Mrs Edwards, Lachlan White, Ryan Davie and myself (Elizabeth Curline), set out on our silver duke of Ed hike, The Castle. Excited as we were we all piled into Mrs Edwards’ small car chattering away. After a one and a half hour drive we arrived at the track where we used our last part of civilization, which we thought we would be deprived of for the next three days, the toilet. We heaved our heavy packs onto our backs and started our walk. After the first 150 meters we came to a river crossing. Not many of us had brought a spare pair of shoes with us so we placed stepping stones down with the expense of Mr Clarke’s and one of my shoes getting wet. The next 2.5

NCS Staff Conference Week – (17-21 July)

Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. Colossians 3: 12-13 (NIV) The first week of Term 3 at NCS is now completed and it has been wonderful to have all of our students back with us! Schools can be very empty places without students so it has brought the staff great pleasure to hear the excited voices of our students in the playgrounds and to see groups of young people moving purposefully to their various classes. The week commenced with both Primary and Secondary studen
