Newsletter 2018 Term 3 Week 7

From the Principal
We are thankful to God for the leadership of Mrs Dianne Dowson, Director of New Hope School and the wonderful team of staff, both teaching and non-teaching.

As we are thankful, we look to the future and seek God’s guidance for the timing and the type of new facilities for our expected significant enrolments in this School.

I continue to be thankful also for the relationship between New Hope School, staff and students, and those of Pacific Hills Christian School. We continue to look for ways to provide for the special needs of our students.

I am interested in meeting with parents who would like to provide feedback to me, directly, in my role as Principal of New Hope School and to make suggestions for the future.

Permission Notes
Two notes have come home today. One for a visit to Crusaders Galston ahead of our school camp in Term 4, and one regarding the possibility of swimming lessons.

Smoothie Fundraiser
Week 2 of the Smoothie Fundraiser saw an even ‘smoother’ operation in the kitchens as drinks were made and delivered and the queues at the window were efficiently dealt with. In just one lunchtime, the students made, served and took money for a record 87 drinks!

It will run again next week on Wednesday 19 and Friday 21 September. If you would like your child to buy a delicious smoothie or milkshake in support of our Compassion sponsor child, 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. Dairy free options are available.
