Newsletter 2018 Term 3 Week 6

Darling Harbour 
We had a lovely day out on our excursion to Darling Harbour on Wednesday. The ferry trip was relaxing and enjoyable and the Chinese gardens were beautiful. There was a lot of fun had by all at the play equipment in the Darling Quarter playground, with many smiles and laughter. We were thankful that although we had a couple of showers of rain, it really didn’t affect our activities.

Smoothie Fundraiser
New Hope senior class students will be operating a smoothie store as our fundraising project for this term. We will be raising money to continue supporting our Compassion sponsor child, Bryan and to contribute to PHCS Missions teams. Today was our first run and it was highly successful. This activity provides an excellent opportunity for the students to learn valuable skills as they make the smoothies and milkshakes, take orders, and exchange money. Thank you to Mr Nathan Francis who is coordinating this fundraising project.

If you would like your child to buy a delicious smoothie or milkshake next time, they are just $4. They can choose a Mango, Banana, Mango+Banana, Strawberry+Banana or Mixed Berry Smoothie or a Chocolate, Caramel or Strawberry Milkshake.

The Smoothie Fundraiser will be run again on Wednesday 12, Friday 14, Wednesday 19 and Friday 21 September.

School Fair – we still need your help
New Hope School will be running a stall at the school fair on Saturday 22 September. Students have begun painting small terracotta pots (and similar) at school and planting herbs in the pots for selling on our stall. We are looking for parent volunteers to assist during the day. If you have an hour to spare we would love to hear from you. The fair is from 10am to 3pm. If you can help at any time between 9:30 and 3.30pm please contact Lisa Philips by This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  .
