Welcome back and celebrations
Welcome back and I hope you all enjoyed a well-deserved break and with family and friends. After a busy Semester 1 and a long Term 2 staff and students celebrated on the final day of term with Brave Faces, brilliantly coordinated by Rohan Hamit who also was the MC. Students and staff performed brilliantly. Thanks to Jerome Rush, Josh McDonald and Sophia Griffith for judging. On this day we also farewelled Michael Grose, who will be working in Canada for the next 12 months; David Norman is also on leave for semester 2.
NHS is buzzing with final rehearsals of Guys and Dolls underway – cast and crew spent the holidays refining the various element of the show. I encourage you to join in the fun and be part of the audience.
