Stage 3 Football Metro Cup

On Monday, 21 May the Metro Cup Stage 3 Football (real football that is) Team had a windy and chilly day in the highlands that didn't quite deliver the outcome we were anticipating. Having won this event the last couple of years, hopes were high - perhaps a bit too high. A lot of excitement but not enough execution in our first game saw some average defending result in us conceding a goal midway through the first half. Worse still, we couldn't score, despite quite a few good chances. We ended up losing that one 1-0 and really should have done better on the scoreboard, a couple of chances going begging that cost us heavily in the final standings. Second game we were a bit more focussed, p

NCS presents Bye Bye Birdie

Rehearsals are coming together nicely as our Secondary students are set to take audiences back to the 1950s in the hilarious musical comedy, Bye Bye Birdie. Sixty talented singers and actors from Years 7-12 have been rehearsing for the past seven months and are excited to present this iconic rock‘n’roll musical from 23-26 May. Bye Bye Birdie is set in America during 1958, a time of rock’n’roll, swishing skirts and slicked back hair. Year 9 student Micah Perry plays teen heartthrob, Conrad Birdie – an Elvis type rock star – who is about to be drafted into the US Army. Conrad’s songwriter and agent, Albert (Lachlan White, Year 11), and Albert’s secretary and some-time girlfriend, Rosie (Tamsyn

Secondary Camp 2018

View more images Students' thoughts about Secondary Camp Year 7 From Wednesday the 25th to Friday the 27th, all of high school was at school camp. My favourite activity was pool rafting, even though the water was like ice! My best highlight was at talent night when Ryan, Lachlan and Nick got up and played ‘Feeling Good’ by Muse. I learnt from the amazing talks we had, that God will never stop loving us no matter what and He is full of grace and mercy. Lilly Year 8 I had a great time at NCS camp enjoying the environment and spending time with classmates. canoeing was amazing because we cruised around the remains of the old sandstone infrastructure built on the riverbank. But Amani’s talk r

Uniform clarification for Secondary students

An email was sent home to Secondary parents, earlier this week, regarding some uniform clarification of the Secondary students. As a staff, we greatly appreciate parents & carers working in partnership with the school to ensure that our school uniform and appearance policy is upheld.

All uniform matters are clearly outlined in the 2018 Information Book (pp. 46-49) Detailed information regarding various aspects of dress/uniform are covered in the Information Book on the following pages: · Jewellery - page 23 · Hair - page 19 · Headwear - page 20 · Makeup - page 24 · Uniform (general) - page 34 · Summer &

Stage 3 Mogo Camp Accounts

By Chloe G and Jordan D As Term Two began at NCS and K-4 resumed their usual schedules, Stage 3 students and teachers were off at a two-day, one-night camp to Mogo, and in this article we are going to explain everything that happened to us! While we were learning about the 1850s Gold Rush and life during that time, as well as enjoying traditional Aboriginal culture, we all had a blast. Cooking damper, bushwalking, visiting the zoo and even dancing were just a few of the highlights. On the first day, just after arriving at our camp - after we had stopped off at the park to have a break and have some food - we met our awesome Aboriginal tour guide, who was known as ‘Um’. Um was friendly,

A note from Mr Bray - 18 May 2018

“If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:31b-32 I have ‘borrowed’ this fortnight’s focus verses from the ‘My School, My Responsibility’ (MSMR) program that was held on Friday, 11 May, at Nowra Christian School. The theme for this event was ‘Stick to the Truth’ and Jesus reminds us in this passage that ‘If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.’ John 31(b)-32 (NIV). This was the very important message that was conveyed to approximately 130 secondary students who came from 8 schools as far afield as Wollongong in the north and Ul

Macbeth at NCS

Last Tuesday, Year 10 students were treated to a visit from the Bell Shakespeare Company who performed “Macbeth: The Rehearsal”. This was a one hour show taking key scenes from the play and exploring different ways of approaching the language and characters in each scene. It was an excellent way to engage with Shakespeare’s ideas, and gain an understanding of the whole play. We really enjoyed peeking through this little window to see how the actors go about their work. We were also glad to be able to welcome students and teachers from Nowra Anglican College who joined us. We were delighted to see one of the teachers from NAC murdered on stage, in the role of King Duncan, and to see their st

Bell Shakespeare Primary performance

Last Monday, Years 4 to 7 were privileged to see the Bell Shakespeare company in an energetic and entertaining performance in the church hall. The show was designed to introduce Shakespeare novices to the comedy, tragedy and romance of Shakespeare, not to mention the cool death scenes! The 3 experienced performers brought to life the language (poetic pentameter) and action of many different plays, grouping their performance into acts based on the common themes in Shakespearean plays: the language, comedy, romance, tragedy and deaths. We enjoyed the actors' swordsmanship, humour and fast-paced action. We only wished they could have stayed for longer and performed their other plays. Thank

Primary Girls' Netball Teamwork

The Stage 3 Girls' Netball Team enjoyed a gala day at South Nowra, competing with great team spirit. They played 5 short games through the day, cheered on by Mrs Sutcliffe, Mrs Graham, Mrs Heard and Mrs Landstra. Thank you to Jasmine and Amelia (year 7) for being umpires and training the girls with Mrs Heard. Thanks also to Mr Parker for all your help with organising the excursion. The girls showed an improvement from game to game in their skills and knowledge of the rules. I was so proud of the teamwork and support that the girls showed one another. They were a good example to other teams, showing that even if you aren’t winning, you can still have fun and display great sportsmanship. Wel

Jackson's Outward Bound experience

"Twelve days, with 28 people hiking rugged bush land in the 
Australian Alps - this is how I spent the school holiday’s in April.
" I was lucky enough to be sponsored by Nowra Lions Club and 
Bomaderry Bowling Club to represent Nowra Christian School at the Outward Bound 
Navigator course in the Australian Alps in the ACT. After arriving at base camp 
and getting to know everyone, we received our gear that would keep us dry, warm 
and fed over the next 12 days. This was all put in our backpacks and we had to 
carry this through the rugged bushland…no trails for us - it was off trail 
the whole way! The course aims to build leadership skills while challenging 
you along the way. High rope

From Port Hacking to Mogo

On behalf of the Board and staff team, I would wish to warmly welcome back all school families to Term 2 at NCS. A number of students and their families have joined us for the very first time this week and we are delighted that you have chosen to become part of our school community. I trust that all families have had some opportunities for rest and refreshment during the past two weeks of the school holiday period. As I am writing this article on Tuesday evening, I am like many other staff and students who are organising their packing for our school camps. All of our Secondary students will have three exciting days at the Port Hacking Youthworks Conference Centre, located in the very beautif

Honouring our Anzacs

This year NCS students, families and staff members attended a number of Anzac Day services throughout the Shoalhaven area. It was a privilege to participate in these occasions honouring those who have served our country. It was moving to witness a younger generation marching to represent family and friends, many of whom are no longer with us. Thank you for joining us as we also honoured the men and women serving in the Armed forces today. Lest we forget.

Year 5 and 6 shine in science

Year 5 and 6 classes have done a fantastic job with group work in science, preparing an electrical circuit designed for a particular function. Students got to work with batteries, switches, wires, globes, buzzers and motors, as well as other materials to design their projects. Some classes then presented their projects to other primary students at recess time. The standard of work was very impressive, well done stage 3!
