About the program

The Student Ambassador Program will give current Years 8 and 9 students who are committed to the school’s values and passionate about telling others about Nowra Christian School the opportunity to share their knowledge, experience and understanding about being part of the NCS community.

 

Student ambassadors will be the 'face' of NCS and will assist the community relations team to represent the school to current and prospective students and families at expos, marketing events (such as Open Week and Year 7 Experience Day) school tours and on videos/social media. They may also assist at other community events such as NCS Community Coffee & Chat, Twilight Picnic, Community Prayer Breakfasts, NCS Perspective Evenings etc.

The ideal student will be:

 

  • in Year 8 or 9 at time of completing an application

  • passionate and positive about attending NCS
