A note from Mr Bray - 24 November 2017

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5: 7 (NIV) Thank you to Mr McLennan and Mrs Meek for writing the NCS Bytes articles during the past two weeks. I am amazed at how much has happened at our school during this period. Our Years 9 and 10 students have successfully completed their work experience week. Junior Primary students have been undertaking their Swim Scheme program where they have the opportunity to further develop their swimming skills. The Foundation Studies program began for our Senior students (Years 11 and 12) and there was also an Information Night for parents of these students. And these are just a few of the many activities that took place during this

Year 8 Gymnastics Program

For the first five weeks of Term 4, Year 8 have been taking part in Gymnastics lessons as part of their PE program. Instructors from Nowra Gymnastics Club provided the instruction and equipment. The program was extremely well received by the students. It was extremely encouraging to see some of the talent we have in this area, as well as students with little or no experience giving it their best and learning a range of new skills. We would like to thank Tony, Ebony and Naomi from the Nowra Gymnastics Club for their excellent service to the school and look forward to next year's Year 8 having just as much fun in 2018.

Study Skills Day

On Monday, last week, Years 10 and 11 went on an incursion and spent the day learning about various aspects to HSC life. In the first 2 periods we had a devotion, given by Mr Bray, before Mrs Meek spoke to us about fixed and growth mindsets. After recess we were given booklets and Mrs Dallimore spoke to us about the rules and regulations in the HSC and Preliminary courses and our responsibilities as students at Nowra Christian School. During period 4, Mrs Hetherington taught us about Harvard Referencing and how to avoid accidental plagiarism. Following a much enjoyed pizza lunch (provided by the school), we had 2 seminars presented by Elevate. One of the seminars was on Time Management and i

Stage 1 enjoy an Indian feast

This term Stage 1 have enjoyed learning all about India and as part of celebrating the end of our Unit we had an Indian Feast. The Stage 1 students came dressed in lovely colourful Indian clothes. As part of the Feast the children were able to experience different curries and rice, Butter Chicken and Lamb Korma. Of course, no Indian Feast is complete without some yummy Naan Bread. The children were very excited and some pleasantly surprised with the yummy food. A big Thank You to the many parent helpers on the day. You helped to make our Feast an enjoyable and memorable moment for all of our students.

Year 7 Orientation Day

What an exciting day for our children progressing to Year 7 in 2018. Including our new students, we had 42 nervous but excited students. After an initlal meet and greet with Mr Bray anda Mrs Meek, the students played team building games in the MPC. After Recess, the students experienced a taste of English and Maths - Secondary style. A pizza lunch was enthusiastically enjoyed as well as some games in the playground. After lunch, Science featured experiments of testing food for starch and explosions; as well as craft contours. It was lovely to see our new students being included in games and new friendships budding. In the evening we were delighted to also welcome nearly 60 parents/carers of

Dragon Tag Gala Day

On Thursday, 9 November, thirty one Stage Three students went to Albion Park to play Dragon Tag at a gala day organised by The Dragons NRL team. There were four teams from NCS; Two were boys and the other two were girls. Three of our girls combined with 4 girls from Cedars CC to make a team called the ‘Barbarian Chooks’! They won 2 games and lost 1. Playing together in a way that belied the fact that they didn’t know one another. NCS Girls Team One won 2 and tied 1 game to finish undefeated. NCS Boys Team One won 2 games and lost 1. Finally, NCS Boys Team Two won 1, tied 1 and lost 1. It’s hard to pick out individual performances, so it would be better to perhaps make mention of the fine wa

Impressive, insightful and inspiring

Last Monday, 30 October, a group of Prefects from our school: Noah, Liz, Jasmine, Lachie and myself, accompanied by Mr Bray and Mrs Meek, rose early and ‘trained it’ all the way to Darling Harbour, Sydney for the NATIONAL YOUNG LEADERS DAY. The conference was sponsored by ‘Halogen ’and was attended by hundreds of student leaders from across NSW. The four Keynote speakers were impressive, insightful and inspiring to say the least. The first to speak was the Honorable Gladys Berejiklian, Premier of our State. She delivered a concise and engaging talk focusing on being a passionate leader who demonstrates courage and ‘calls it out’ when something is wrong. When asked how she ‘weighs up’ im

‘Synergy’ Student Leaders Breakfast

‘Synergy’ Student Leaders (2018) Breakfast – 7 November This event brought together the student leadership teams from all five ATICS (Association of Christian Teachers in Illawarra Christian Schools). Nowra Christian School sent our six elected prefects to participate in this important program. Our students were Rachel Hill, Elizabeth Curline, Jasmine Dickinson, Lachlan White, Noah McMillan and Caleb Mackie. As a staff member, it gave me great pleasure to observe the relaxed collegial manner in which the student leaders from all five schools came together to enjoy each other’s company and to engage in animated conversation. It confirmed for staff from each school that the important area of s

'Splash and Dash' success

The boys teams competed well, with Ollie joined by Rohan B for th

Speak to Me

Three students from each year group presented speeches at 'Speak to Me', the NCS public speaking competition, held on Tuesday. "What the world needs now" was the topic for the prepared speeches. Congratulations to Harrison Thomas, the stage four winner and Joel Clifton, the stage five winner. Speakers were given five minutes to prepare an impromptu speech on the subject "Think Big." Impromptu speaking is a very difficult skill and all speakers deserve to be commended for participating in this part of the competition. Isabel McPhail won the stage four section and Nicholas Astill won the stage five section. Mr Windsor, Mr Bray and Mrs Bignell were the adjudicators for the competition and gave

A Note from Mr Bray - 3 November 2017

They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!” Mark 4:41 (NIV) A highlight of Week 4 for me has been the opportunity to travel on two separate occasions by train to Sydney to participate in stimulating programs involving our students. Monday morning saw my alarm ringing at an exceptionally early hour of the morning as I prepared to join with Mrs Meek and 5 of next year’s school prefects as we made our way to attend the National Young Leaders Day. This event was held at the International Convention Centre located at Darling Harbour. Here we joined with some 1,600 other young leaders drawn from schools throughout New South Wales. The program fea

War at Sea Exhibit comes to NCS

It also explores the mystery surrounding the loss of Australia's first submarine, the AE1, and the role of the Royal Australian Bridging Train at Gollipoli in 1915. As a special addition to the exhibit, we will be displaying the original portrait of Naval Stoker John James Bray who was serving on the AE1 submarine when it disappeared without a trace
