Newsletter 2019 Term 1 Week 5

School Photo
Photo forms went home in bags last week and need to be returned either prior to the photo day or at the latest on the day. The photo day is Monday 11 March, please put this in your calendars. Students should wear their normal summer uniform.

NISSA Meeting
Today (Friday) I attended the National Independent Special Schools Association (NISSA) meeting. This group meets each term and membership of NISSA provides access to collegiate support and expertise from other educators and administrators in the area of special education. I am thankful for this opportunity to connect with and learn from other leaders from other independent special schools.

New Hope School’s Birthday
Each year we will celebrate our birthday. We have chosen the 17 March as the official day for this celebration as this was the day of our official opening which occurred in 2015. This year is our 4th birthday, and although it is not a particularly significant milestone, it nevertheless provides an opportunity to thank God for his blessings in the development of New Hope School. This year the 17 March falls on a Sunday and so on Friday 15 March, we will be extending our normal Friday afternoon New Hope School assembly and inviting Dr Boyce to join us. Some photos will be shared with the students and a treat to finish off the day.
