Assemblies: We had our first assembly for year 1 – 6 on Monday and I introduced our school captains: I wish them all the very best in their leadership role. We will be presenting badges to all our student leaders in the very near future.
Welcome back to O.S.H.C. 2016. It’s so nice to see everyone again, I hope that you have all had an enjoyable & relaxing holiday. We have a number of new staff this year, as sadly we had to say good-bye to Steph, Hayley, Caitlin, Zoe, Grant & Greta who have either started new jobs, gone overseas or doing further education. They have been a great team to work with and we will miss them all. Please say hi to our new Team members and make them feel welcome

What a fantastic night was held last Tuesday with the Instrument Concert for 2015. The talents of all our students learning Keyboard, Piano, Guitar, Drums,Singers and Flute were showcased in a great night. We have some amazingly talented children here at ENPS and we were all so proud to see them get up and perform in front of their parents, friends and peers.
And the countdown is on!!! Just over 2 weeks until another school year is done and dusted … time really does go too fast these days. We hope you've all managed to take time at some point to stop and smell the roses.
