Dear families, It has been a busy few weeks! We have installed new bike racks, started work on the front sign, hosted a movie night, engaged in the Day of Service and sent the Year 6 students off to a cultural immersion camp at Banu Banu. I would like to publicly express my gratitude to the Parents and Friends group, particularly Laura Butler, for their involvement in bringing the movie night together. They are such tireless and selfless workers, although they may now dispute the claim of tireless, and it was a terrific evening. It was the P&F who liaised with Pacific Aluminum to build the bike racks for us and we are grateful to Mal Farnsworth and his team of apprentices for their hard work and to Gove Operations Pacific Aluminum for helping make it all possible. I also want to acknowledge the hard work of Sharon Beer and Anthony Collier in running the Year 6 camp and we appreciate the support we received from Helen and Trevor and Banu Banu Eco Wilderness Retreat by all accounts it was a huge success. We have had tremendous feedback from the Day of Service. The students get excitement from helping others and their efforts are much appreciated by an often surprised yet grateful community. The most common response was how impressed people were by the work ethic of our students. I would like to finish the newsletter by acknowledging the service of Kristie Gurney to NCC since 2009. Kristie is in the process of handing over Year 1 to Gonnie Keogh for the remainder of the year as she and her family return to Albury to be with family. Kristie is a terrific teacher and has made many contributions to the College beyond the classroom. Her talent, thoughtfulness and cheerfulness will be missed. Every joyously, Steve Venour Principal From the Principals Desk Soc it to me! Soccer was the name of the game for Year 4 and 5/6 classes recently when Damon Alldritt from Football NT spent time with our students teaching them the finer art of soccer skills and drills. We have some wonderful opportunities here in Nhulunbuy and the students were very enthusiastic. Thank you Damon! Day of Service continued... Some students in particular worked incredibly hard and with heartfelt focus. Ciara Arkcoll and Floriana Lamboa from Year 4 worked at Gove Veterinary Services and were two students that really stood out. This is what Ciara had to say about the experience. I had a lot of fun at the Vets on Day of Service, cleaning up weeds. Floriana and I filled up 9 bags of weeds and leaves! It made me feel very happy and helpful and I didn't want to stop! Prayer in action is love, love in action is service. Mother Teresa
