Meet the Teacher Evening
The New Hope School ‘Meet the Teacher’ evening will be held next week on Tuesday 19 February. The evening will be held in the New Hope classrooms and will commence with a combined session at 6:30pm and conclude between 7:30pm and 8:00pm. Our school counsellor, Mrs Liz Harris will be there to introduce herself. The draft plans for our new buildings will be presented and you will also find out about other initiatives at New Hope School.

Parent Contact List
Each year, we provide the opportunity for parents to be included on a Parent Contact List which is then distributed to NHS parents. This is to assist the school parents to be able to contact each other if needed. Many parents have provided permission in previous years. This list will be distributed soon. If you no longer want to be included on this list, please email Elle (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) by Thursday 21 February.

Hannahs Uniform Shop
If at any stage during the year you need to purchase uniform items, the ladies in the uniform shop would be happy to take any orders via email (This email address is being protected from spambots.

Monday & Tuesday: 8:30am – 3:30pm
Wednesday: 8:30am – 1:30pm

Duke of Edinburgh Year 9 students
Three Year 9 students from PHCS have requested to provide support at New Hope School to satisfy the service requirement of the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh award. Tyler, Jason and John visited for the first time on Thursday this week. I was thankful for the positive interactions which I observed amongst the students and the many smiles and laughs during the games that they played together.
