Is someone you love stressed or distressed? Terms three and four can be a stressful time of year for students and families. Listening and communicating without judgement is sometimes the hardest thing to do; and sometimes the only thing that can help those struggling with stress or mental health challenges.
Next Wednesday (20 September) Steven Gamble of Man Anchor will be sharing an abridged version of the Communication with Care workshop. Learn to understand the triggers, signs, symptoms, and the more common barriers that friends, family and colleagues may be facing during a mental health crisis across a wide spectrum of disorders from panic attacks and depression to suicide.
Wednesday 20 September, NBSC Cromer Campus
Early Bird: $13 (tickets include a drink and snack)
The school grounds are looking great and the students are enjoying the new gardens, tables and benches the P & C recently had installed. However, the school still needs some work to be looking its best and that’s where you can help. Parents AND children are invited to help out with the working bee on Sunday 25th June 8am-2pm. Most of the work will centre around clearing out some of the garden beds and spreading some new mulch.
What to bring. Wheelbarrow / bucket Rakes Shovels Hedge trimmer Secateurs / pruning cutters Garden / work gloves Insect spray Sunscreen Water bottle Positive can-do attitude
There will be a sausage sizzle provided for all the amazing helpers. Work up an appetite and reward yourself with a sausage sanga and a cold drink.
So, get the word out and let’s gather as many people as possible to help improve our school. Even if you can only spare 30 minutes, your school community will greatly appreciate it. Please register your interest and rough times at the following link.

QUADFEST – 20 May’21: What a fantastic festival of impressive art, performances and music. A massive thanks to all the amazing contributions to the QuadFest Bake Sale. The tables were overflowing with super delicious treats and sweets, so a huge thanks to all – and the testimony to the success was that not a single crumb was left over. It looked amazingly delicious. The sausage sizzle was a great success too – some 360 sausages and onions later… A special thanks to the parent volunteers who helped out on the day – so greatly appreciated!
