There are some excursions planned for different classes in the coming weeks (see dates for your diary). Please keep an eye out for permission notes in your child’s bag next week.

PHCS 40th birthday celebrations
On Tuesday 21 May, a Thanksgiving Service was held at school to celebrate the school’s birthday and to give thanks to God for his goodness to us. Our students were able to enjoy watching a part of this service via a live feed to our classrooms. On Thursday evening a dinner was held at Bivianno’s restaurant. Special guests at these events included Mrs Robin Odell (Co-founder of the School), Hon Dr Brendan Nelson (Director, Australian War Memorial), Hon Matt Kean MP (Member for Hornsby), Mr Julian Leeser MP (Member for Berowra), Hon Phillip Ruddock, MP (Mayor, Hornsby Shire Council), Dr Michelle Byrne (Mayor, Hills Shire Council), Mrs Lyn McCrindle (first teacher of PHCS), as well as many Principal’s and guests from our International Sister Schools, Principal’s from local schools and many other past students, parents and teachers as well as current members of the school community. These events have been a wonderful time of celebration and a reminder of the special Christian community that New Hope School is a part of.
