Hotchin Cures the Drought

One year had passed since Nicholas H had last hit the back of the net. The State Futsal Competition began as the crowd anxiously waited for their hero to strike again. In the first two games, the Hot-Chinned Hawk decided that it was not yet time to grace the crowd with a legendary goal. The Hawk crunches on his green apple prior to the third match, it was time. He knew it was time. The third game kicked off. The crowd were ready, as was Nic. The game was stuck at a 3-3 stalemate; the stage was set for a legend to be made. The Hot-Chinned Hawk approached the opportunity and one foot from the goal, he crushed the ball with the outside of his foot as the net braced for an impact it had not felt

NCS Lions and Tigers meet NAC

On Thursday, 20 September our Stage 2 netball teams, the NCS Lions & NCS Tigers, enjoyed a friendly competition against two teams from NAC. Our NCS girls represented the school incredibly well, displaying great sportsmanship and teamwork. For the majority of the 23 girls it was the first time they had played netball. The NCS lions played a great first game, attacking and defending well. They were defeated by NAC 1 14-0. The NCS Tigers also played a great game, and were successful in defeating NAC 2 4-2. It was wonderful watching both teams display the new skills they had learnt. They were all amazing. The girls were trained by Amelia L and Jasmine H, who did an amazing job teaching the s

Maths Detectives

Over the past few weeks, Stage 3 have been learning about fractions, percentages and decimals in our maths group. We’ve learnt how to add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions and decimal numbers, and calculate simple percentages. To conclude the unit, we became detectives, searching for clues as to how fractions, decimals and percentages are used in real life. We discovered that they are used in recipe books, when telling the time, whilst shopping and when working with money.

Stage 3 students soar at Basketball Gala Day

Friday Week 6, was the Shoalhaven Primary Stage 3 Basketball Gala Day in Bomaderry. NCS sent two boys and two girls teams. We joined hundreds of other students sitting in the grandstand before the day got underway. We entered a competitive and development team in both of the competitions. Each of our teams had a coach from the Year 9-10 PASS class at Bomaderry High. They were invaluable in helping organise our players, as well as substituting students on and off the court. Three of our four teams made it to the quarter finals after hard first round matches against other local primary schools. In the girls comp, Alexis WJ finished as NCS' top scorer with 11 scoring shots. There were other st

Poetry sees some action

Poetry, a dying art? Can spoken verse persist as part Of lover’s tongue or tyrant’s rant, Of sacred plea or childish chant? Archaic skill so stigmatised, A generation digitised Can see no point, no sense, no gain In blissful ignorance remains - But then, as sunbeams through the mist Like siren’s song, who can resist? A poet calls to youthful ears As now enlightenment appears The spell is cast, the spark is lit Captivated listeners sit Hours now like seconds pass (At least it gets us out of class) Perhaps we may have learned a fraction From this Poetry in Action!

A note from Mr Bray - 21 September 2018

I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. Psalms 121:1-2 As I am writing this article on Wednesday evening, I am very conscious that this is the final edition of Bytes for Term 4. When you sit down to read the Bytes, there will be just one week of this term remaining and it will certainly be a very special week for our Year 12 students and their families as I will explain a little later in my article. This past fortnight certainly began in a most colorful manner with the public opening of our Kindergarten Art Exhibition on Monday, 10 September. I attended this event last year and was truly amazed by the artis

9/10 PASS coaches Year 3 and 4

The Year 9/10 Sports Studies class completed group coaching sessions with our Year 3 and 4 students as part of their semester 2 assessment. Both primary and secondary students have really enjoyed the opportunity to work together, with our 9 and 10 students getting a chance to experience the joy of working with children!

Prefect Leadership Day 2018

Last Friday we participated in a leadership day for students in Years 10 and 11 who had put their names forward to become a School Prefect. This event was run by Mr Bray, Mr Petts and Mrs Meek. It was an educational day designed to prepare us for leadership in our school. We started the day by brainstorming the attributes of a good leader with Mr Bray. We also reflected on what it means to be a leader and our own motives for nominating to become a Prefect. We acknowledged that there are two types of leaders: the one whose motives is purely for themselves; and the one who leads for the benefit of others. We made judgements on where we sat between, or with, each side. After that we watche

A note from Mr Bray - 7 September 2018

I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength. Philippians 4: 12-13. (NIV) If you have been feeling that this year is racing by then this past week would only help to confirm this suspicion as we have officially farewelled winter and have made our way into the spring season. Already the days have noticeably lengthened and we are no longer getting up in the dark and coming home as the sun sets! It is a particularly pleasant time of the year as the wattle trees are ablaze with th

Stage 3 Inter-school Basketball friendly matches

On Friday, 24 August, NCS students from Stage 3 played four games of friendly basketball against NAC in our MPC. These friendly games were arranged to allow our students to play some proper games against other teams ahead of a gala day at Shoalhaven Basketball Stadium coming up on Friday, in Week 6. Our Stage 3 boys played two very competitive matches against their NAC counterparts. In the first match, Regan B opened the scoring for our boys, after NAC had scored a handful of unanswered points. Although they continued to press hard through the skill of Cohen S, Isaac C and Noah T, our boys were beaten by a team who had more experience playing together. In the first girls game, our team were

‘Threatened Species’ Mini-Project

Students in Stage 3 participated in a special competition run by the Shoalhaven City Council to celebrate National Threatened Species Day. This special day is held on 7 September each year to encourage the community to help conserve Australia’s unique native flora and fauna. This year the theme for the competition followed the World Environment Day theme of “Beat Plastic Pollution”. Students were encouraged to incorporate this theme into their entries. In Geography,students have been studying the Shoalhaven River area and they chose a ‘Threatened Species’ from the area as their mini-project. They researched information including the common and scientific name of the chosen threatened spe
