Check Mate!

Last Tuesday 13 August, eight students from Years 3-6 traveled to Illaroo Road Public School to compete in games of chess against teams from many of our local schools.

InTune Concert - 27 August 6pm

Nowra Christian School and Shoalhaven City Concert Band are combining to present a selection of music in concert. Last year, The NCS Concert Band were the grateful recipients of a pair of Timpani from the Shoalhaven Concert Band. This kind donation was the impetus for the first combined In Tune Concert.

The repertoire, chosen by Conductors Mr Richard Hodge and Mrs Amanda Lawrence, features a selection of genres from up tempo funk, to classics like Danny Boy and Soft Shoe Shuffle, and will also include some modern and very well known tunes. The Shoalhaven Jazz Band will also keep you tapping yo

A note from Mr Bray - 9 August 2019

Focus verses: Philippians 2: 1-11 (NIV) A fortnight ago, when I wrote my first NCS Bytes article for this term, I referred to our July Staff Conference and mentioned that we were awaiting the return of our students the following Monday. Well, as mentioned above, that was two weeks ago and we have had the pleasure of the company of your children for the past fortnight. School is certainly a much more dynamic place when we have 413 young people from Kindergarten all the way through to Year 12 arriving each day! I can assure you that a great deal of effective teaching and learning has already occurred during these ten days. As many of you would be directly aware, we have been holding a number o

El Camino de Santiago de Compostella

We went on a Pilgrimage… At the end of last term, my husband and I did the ‘Camino de Santiago de Compostella’. This is a pilgrimage through the north of Spain. ‘A pilgrimage?’ you say, ‘that is not something that Protestants do!’ This is true. A pilgrimage is a spiritual journey and some do it to win favour with God or even for healing. We know that we only have God’s favour through the work of Jesus on the cross. However, it can have value, even for us. Taking the time to walk through the countryside, quaint medieval villages and even larger towns, was an opportunity to slow down and to pray. Many people are also seeking God so this could be an amazing opportunity to point p

NCS Success in the Shoalhaven Youth Art Prize

Delighted art lovers were wowed at the opening of the Shoalhaven Art Society 54th Annual Open Art Exhibition held on Saturday 3 August. The exhibition incorporates the Shoalhaven Youth Art Prize. A number of NCS students entered some beautiful artworks. After much deliberation by a judging panel of three professional artists, five NCS students took out awards. First Place in the Senior division was awarded to Emily K with her oil painting "Amethyst". The judges were impressed with the quiet and intimate mood of this piece. The work shows a sophisticated still life with a beautiful palette and delicate brushstrokes. The audience was enchanted with the ambiguous sense of space. First Place in

Touch Football Clinics

On Monday 7 August, Danielle Robb from NSW Touch Football visited NCS to offer some coaching to students in Years 3 to 6. Each class enjoyed a forty minute session, learning some of the passing, running and movement skills involved in the sport of touch football. We were very grateful to Danielle for travelling all the way from Penrith to visit our school and hope that all students enjoyed this wonderful opportunity to further their sporting skills.

Primary Zone Athletics - Faster, Higher, Longer, Stronger!

Thursday 1 August 2019 was a day for over fifty NCS students in Years 3-6 to remember. With beautiful clear blue skies overhead our primary students took to the track and field at Kerryn McCann Athletics Centre at Beaton Park in Wollongong to compete in the Primary Zone Athletics Carnival. Our students gave great account of themselves competing to the best of their abilities against the other five Christian Schools in our region. The day began in prayer as our students dedicated their efforts, gifts and talents to our great God. Events got underway at just after 9:00 a.m. with the boys 800m and girls field events. There were plenty of stand-out performances between then and the closing event
