Welcome Back to Term 4

            We are very excited about a productive term of learning ahead.  Term 4 will be busy with the upcoming School Musical.  We hope everyone had a relaxing’s great to be back!

HSC Exams

            Year 12 kicked off their formal HSC Exams this week.  It was encouraging to see our students emerge from their first exam with smiles!  Keep it up team, the accumulated study and effort will be well worth it!

Tell Them From Me – Partners in Learning Survey

            A final reminder that our ‘Tell Them From Me’ survey window is currently open between now and the end of the term.  Our ‘Partners in Learning Survey’ can be accessed at:

            Thank you to parents who have already completed this survey.  We value your feedback and look forward to reporting back to the community where our parent, student and staff surveys direct us for future planning.

            A massive thank you also to NIDS for their assistance in providing wireless internet capabilities using their 4G network at Rawson Hall on Show Day.  Their generous donation of bandwidth and use of equipment enabled our parents to complete the ‘Tell Them From Me’ survey at Rawson Hall.

            Despite our 2020 Student Leadership Team feeling somewhat like they were working in sales, their encouragement and leadership of this initiative has resulted in over a 650% increase in parent feedback we captured in 2018.  Great work team!

History Comes to Life on Norfolk Island for Mainland Students

            The following is a copy of an article that has been on the home page of the NSW Department of Education’s website this week promoting the fantastic excursion we hosted at the end of Term 3.  This is a great example of how Norfolk Island resonates with teachers who return to the mainland after working at NICS.

            We are very thankful to Duranbah Principal, Jason Ellem, for his partnership and organisation.  We hope this will be the first of many similar visits to come.  Special thanks to Rhonda Griffiths for her work with the visiting students, sharing lessons and stories steeped in Norfolk Island culture and tradition.
