Newsletter 2019 Term 2 Week 1

First Week Back
I hope each of our families had an enjoyable holiday and a blessed time over Easter. It was lovely to see everyone back this week.

New Students
We welcome two new students to New Hope School this term. Hugh is joining Mr Francis’ class, and Sam will be a new student in Miss Hutchins’ class, commencing next week.

Swimming
Swimming starts back again next Tuesday with Swimming Group Blue.

Nathaniel swam this week at the CIS Secondary Swimming Championship. He competed in the 50 and 100 metre freestyle and 50 metre backstroke events. Well done Nathaniel.

Mary Poppins
Pacific Hills annual school musical opens next Thursday 9 May. New Hope have been invited to the dress rehearsal on Wednesday 8 May (10:15am) when we will enjoy the whole show. One of our students, Jed, is in the chorus and he has spent many afternoons, some Saturdays and some full days to prepare for this wonderful musical with the rest of the cast and orchestra. Pacific Hills school musicals are a long-standing tradition which occur every second year. They are always excellent and I am sure that this one will not disappoint those who are able to attend. Tickets can be purchased for the Thursday, Friday and Saturday shows here.

Woolworths Earn and Learn
This year, New Hope School will be participating in the Woolworths Earn and Learn program. From Wednesday 1st May until Tuesday 25th June 2019 you can collect Woolworths Earn & Learn Stickers from the checkout operator, via staff at the self-service checkouts or through an online order. We will be able to redeem Woolworths Earn & Learn Stickers for valuable education equipment for our school.

PHCS 40th Celebrations Continues
Pacific Hills Christian School is turning 40! After the student celebration day at the end of last term they are inviting students, staff and parents, past and present to help celebrate what God has done over the last 40 years. You can find out more and RSVP to any of the events here.
