The Flippence family (parents Kathy and Brett and children James, Ben and Anna) have had an association with Nowra Baptist Church and Nowra Christian School since they first arrived in the Nowra area in 1999. Kathy was a teacher at NCS and Brett became Associate Pastor at NBC for a period of time.
Kathy and Brett answered the call to a mission role in Ethiopa, departing Australia in June 2011, where they served at Bingham Academy in a variety of roles, including Bible teaching and, most recently, Kathy worked as Executive Principal.
They have now returned to Australia, with Anna and Ben enrolled as students at NCS and Kathy assisting with the NCS Casual Teaching Team. Their eldest son James, who has now completed his Secondary education, has been providing wonderful assistance to our NCS Grounds and Maintenance Team for the past weeks and he has been part of the team helping with the recent landscaping work near the staffroom and Kindergarten area.
On Friday, we farewelled James from NCS with a morning tea as he has now accepted a traineeship with Youthworks at the local Waterslea site. We wish James well as he embarks on this exciting new endeavor.
