Stage 3 Shoalhaven Basketball Tournament at the new Shoalhaven Sports Centre!

Last Friday, 31 students from Stage 3 (Years 5 and 6) attended a basketball tournament at the new Shoalhaven Indoor Sports Centre in Bomaderry. The day began early with a welcome from organiser (and NCS parent) Shane McMillan. About 8 schools from the area were represented. The games were hotly contested and great skills were evident throughout the day. NCS's Girls Team 2 recorded 2 impressive wins, with Keonie A a standout, scoring freely in most matches. Our Girls Team 1 had 1 win and were close in some other matches. Maddie C scored crucial points in their matches. Injuries to key players meant they were out of contention for a finals spot before their last match, but they played on unde

Stage 3 'Splash and Dash' Biathlon

On Thursday 24 October the Primary Stage 3 Biathlon - otherwise known as 'Splash and Dash' - took place at Sydney Regatta Centre, near Penrith. Stifling conditions greeted competitors as the day began. Our only individual competitor, Jeremy P, had a 200m open water swim, then a 2 km run. He was competing in his first ever Tri-type event and completed it in an impressive 21minutes and 29 seconds finishing in 50th place. This was a combined Year 5 and 6 event, so Jeremy did very well. Next was the turn of our Year 6 girls team event. Keonie A was in the swim leg and Charley B the run. The girls managed to finish in 22 mins and 18 seconds for an overall 35th place. Finally, we had three lot

Micah returns from the NSW Premier’s ANZAC Memorial Scholarship tour

Year 10 student and 2019 NSW Premier's ANZAC Memorial Scholarship recipient, Micah P, has returned from his 16-day tour of significant historical sites and battlefields in France, Belgium and Germany. The tour aimed to give students insight into Australia's experience of conflict and the lessons of war. It also set out to develop a greater understanding of the significance of the ANZAC tradition and the role it played in developing Australian identity. Micah said he had an awesome time on the tour. He particularly enjoyed getting to know the other students. “We are already planning a reunion”, he said. In terms of the interesting historical sites Micah had the opportunity to visit, he found

Kindergarten displays their creativity

Last term, Kindergarten held their annual art exhibition in the MPC Gallery. Kindergarten families and friends were treated to a variety of visual works. Kindergarten children are eager explorers, with an intense desire and will to make sense of their world. They like to do this in a hands-on and concrete way. Some of the most effective means they have for explaining things for themselves are drawing, painting, constructing and clay work. While using these to create images, they explore feelings and ideas, and through their images they communicate thoughts to others as well as themselves. It was wonderful to see the fruit of this creativity at the Kindergarten Art Exhibition.

Primary celebrate 'Vegtember'

During the last three weeks of Term 3, our primary students celebrated 'Vegtember". Some Stage 3 students grew tomato seedlings to give out this term to any students who would like to grow their own crunch 'n' sip vegetables at home. Students from Kindy to Year 6 munched and crunched their way through hundreds of pieces of 'nude' (in God's packaging) fruit and vegetables. We hope that the students will maintain these healthy eating habits and continue to bring their 'nude' fruit and vegetables in Term 4. Each class had the opportunity to win a fruit and veg platter by eating the most fruit and vegetables over the three week period. There was one winning class per stage. A healthy and enj

A note from Mr Bray - 18 October 2019

‘So if the Son sets you free, you are free indeed.’ John 8:36 A warm welcome back to Term 4 to all of our NCS school families! This final term has only 9 weeks and our first week has certainly raced by! Once again, it was very pleasing to see how quickly students and staff settled back into a productive work routine and by Monday morning recess it certainly was a case of ‘business as usual’. Before looking more closely at just some of the activities that have taken place during Week 1, I would like to again remind all parents/carers that there is still an opportunity available to complete the NCS ‘Community Sentiment Survey’. (A big ‘thankyou’ is extended to all parents/carers who have alrea

Romeo and Juliet - but not as we know it

A fantastic end of term visit by three members of Bell Shakespeare Company was well received by Stage 2 and 3 students. The play, Romeo and Juliet, was explored with energy and humour. There was no guessing what might happen next as the actors changed roles, used a variety of small props to dramatise their dynamic performance and invited participation from the audience. A creative genius had set the entire production within a school drama club, with associated teenage hopes, fears and crushes on fellow would-be actors. There were many surprises along the way; I certainly didn't expect to see the ending recreated in several different ways, with Romeo marrying Juliet at the Eiffel Tower in o
