Year 7 and 8 Speech finals

This week we all sat and listened to some amazing speeches in our Year 7 class speech finals. Well done to every one of you!! I was blown away with the high-caliber speeches that you presented. You followed the steps and listened to advice during our writing workshops, which clearly paid off.

Next week on Wednesday (31st August) between 11:30am -12:40pm we will be conducting the Year 7 and 8 Speech Finals. From this we will select our two finalists to go forward and represent NCA at the Interschool Speech Competition on the 14th September.

Welcome back !
I hope that you had a great holiday. I enjoyed spending time with my two nephews Jack and Harlem and relaxing. I have an unusual addition to my family - her name is "Henrietta Hollis" and she has a crazy hair do! I adopted her during the school holidays. 

She is scaring my other 11 chickens! I am hoping that they will be friends soon.                         From Miss Hollis
