Darling Harbour Excursion
Notes will be sent home soon regarding our excursion to Darling Harbour and the Chinese Garden of Friendship. This will take place on the Wednesday of week 6. Please can permission notes be returned by next Friday 24 August so that we can book tickets. Thank you.

Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA)
Six of our students have been involved in horse riding at the Riding for the Disabled centre at Tall Timbers. RDA enables people with disabilities to experience enjoyment, challenge and a sense of achievement through participation in horse riding and equestrian activities. The students have been getting to know their horse, learning how to look after it and riding.

Sport
This term many of the students have been learning tennis skills. It is a delight for me to look out my office window to see the smiles on faces and the encouragement that the students share with one another as they give each activity a go.

Secondary State Athletics
Next Friday 24 August Cameron and Nathaniel will be representing the school at the state athletics championships. We wish them all the best.

School Fair
Each year, Pacific Hills Christian School holds a school fair to raise funds for the school. It is always a fun day with lots of rides, stalls and other activities. This year New Hope School will have a stall with funds going towards our school. We hope to be selling potted herbs. The students will be assisting by painting small terracotta pots and potting them up.
