Farewell our German friend, Linda!

On Friday, we said farewell to our German exchange student, Linda Giesa. Linda has been at our school since the beginning of Term 1. She has been staying with a family in Mollymook and attending our school, participating in our Year 11 classes. Linda comes from Berlin, Germany and decided to do an exchange program to help her develop her English language skills, as well as having the opportunity to meet new people and just being able to have an amazing experience. Coming from a big city, she has had to make some adjustments to a more laid-back South Coast lifestyle. “I thought it would be harder to settle in than it has been. It has been really easy because the people are so lovely,” Linda s

Garden Rejuvenation!

Over the past few weeks, our primary garden has been changing dramatically. Thank you to Daniel and Alicia Cassanova for helping to restore the patch to order during a recent Saturday afternoon. They were also ably assisted by Matthew M from Year 8. Over the last week, Jack D, Joshua C, Emma C and Eli K have also helped. They have been setting up teepees for sweet peas, digging in compost and manure and mulching garden beds. We look forward to the fruit of their labour as other primary students begin to garden during lunchtime clubs next term. More information from Joshua Cash: Recently, four of our students from Year Five and Mr McLennan have been getting their hands dirty in the garden. Th

Secondary does a 360

Last week, the whole of Years 7 -10 attended a modernised circus at the Shoalhaven Entertainment Centre. The show was an incredible blend of beat-boxing, rapping, drumming, music, tumbling, trick cycling and freestyle basketball, break dancing and circus skills. For most of us, it was like nothing we had ever seen before. It was loud, energetic, interactive and so much fun! The day before the performance, we were privileged to have some of the performers come and run workshops. A large group of students took part in these workshops, learning to break dance, basketball freestyle and do circus balancing and other skills. If nothing else, we learned a new appreciation of how hard some of these

Primary State Swimming - Splashdown!

Monday of Week 8, 17 NCS students from Years 3-6 made the trek up to Western Sydney's Blacktown Aquatic Centre to compete in the 2019 CSSA State Swimming Carnival. They were representing South Coast Zone along with students from other local schools in our region. Our children were given a S.C. Zone swim cap, as something of a 'badge of honour' for making it to this high level of competition. In the very pool that Keiran Perkins once set a world record time for 800m freestyle back in the early nineties (ask your parents kids!) our brave students swam their very best competing against other students from around NSW's many Christian Schools. Sixteen of our swimmers took part in the 4 x 50 m fre

Four Seasons In One Day - Relay For Life 2019!

Last Saturday, NCS' Prime Movers Relay for Life team took to the track to walk and run laps for 10 hours at the Cancer Council's annual Nowra event. NCS has a rich history of participation in this community event, with our previous Principal, Mr Phil Smith, being a past RFL President of the organising committee. NCS Prime Movers' 23 strong student team were joined by parents, teachers, friends and students from other stages, as they completed as many laps as they could manage. Several students walked or ran between 50 and 80 laps of the 300 metre track - a mighty feat. Our undercover stall area was used for face painting and henna tattoos, as the team sought to raise more funds on the day. S

Stage 2 AFL Gala Day

On Wednesday, 27 March, Stage 2 students enjoyed their AFL Gala Day at Artie Smith Oval in Bomaderry. After rain the week before, our re-scheduled day was perfect – not too hot, not too cold. Scores of games are not kept and no school wins the day. This allows all students to participate, irrespective of their skill level. It is a great opportunity for students to join in the fun and practice good sportsmanship. Students played games against students from seven other local schools. There were 52 teams in total – the second-best participation rate since 1999. This was a great encouragement for the organisers. NCS entered seven teams - four girls’ teams, two boys’ teams and one mixed te

A note from Mr Bray - 5 April 2019

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. John 15:13 (NIV) Have you noticed that the leaves on some trees are starting to change colour and the days are getting shorter and the nights are becoming cooler? This is a sign that Autumn has definitely arrived. And what do a lot of us do when the seasons alter in this way? Well, we make a hot drink and head for the couch with an enjoyable book or magazine to read? If this sounds like you, then read on because I have some great news for you! I am delighted to announce that next week all 2018 NCS families will receive their free copy of our inaugural school magazine! We have quite deliberately called this magazine
