As we have been working through our series of Actions for Happiness in our Senior School we acknowledge the need to take positive action when we are struggling with our mental health. Action 9 For Happiness encourages us to get help if we’re struggling.

Actionforhappiness.org highlights the truth that there will be difficult times for all of us from time to time. However, when it feels as though we are stuck in a state of pessimism, dealing with ongoing negative emotions, seemingly irresolvable issues, or unhelpful patterns of thought that burden us, it is important that we do something about this.

Doing nothing when we are struggling is not helpful because if we allow our “stuckness” to continue it potentially affects the quality of all aspects of our life robbing us of any Hope and Happiness.

Turning to Faith and leaning on the promises of God’s Word, connecting securely with others, exploring social services, and finding professional support appropriate to our needs can be beneficial in restoring our wellbeing. Being mindful not to do the tough times alone is key.

Understanding that when we accept God’s Grace we never need to face our struggles alone is the greatest gift.

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.” Isaiah 43:2

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

Jess Fleming.. what I was telling you about 🤗

SCHOLASTIC BOOK CLUB ISSUE 7 is coming home this week!

Students from Prep to Year 6 will each be given their flyers for this Term’s Book Club specials.

The due date for orders is MONDAY 25 October. Orders will arrive approximately two weeks after this date. This will be the final Book Club for this year. We appreciate your support, as all sales contribute to more great books for our students to borrow.

Please note: it greatly assists us if you place your order ONLINE using the Parent LOOP option, rather than sending cash into the school. Thank you.

Also, a reminder to use your discretion when ordering titles, as not all books offered by Scholastic will meet the school’s selection criteria.

Nambour Christian College Year 12 student, Jess represents Rockit Climbing Gym.

Bouldering was part of the new event, Sport Climbing, at the Tokyo Olympics. It is climbing without ropes and harnesses. The format is that competitors have 2 hours to complete five climbs.

Points are given for getting to a zone that is generally halfway up the climb and points for topping the climb. The top six competitors go through to finals and the score is reset for those six. Competitors then wait in isolation, so they haven’t seen the climbs.

There are four finals problems and it is a five on five off format – competitors have five minutes to do one climb then five minutes rest and repeat that for all the climbs.

Jess competed at States on 12 September on the Gold Coast. She qualified fifth in the heat and sixth overall in the Junior female category.

Operation Christmas Child is in full swing again for 2021… and the students, especially in Year 7, have been busing filling boxes to send the Christmas joy and love of Jesus to other parts of the world. Boxes will be collected in the next couple of weeks so it is not too late to be involved if your family would like to support this great cause. Simple grab a shoebox and fill it with five items: something to cuddle, something to play with, something to wear, something for school and something for hygiene and the $10 postage (which can be paid online if you collect the flyer from the student office).

Ms English is selling hygiene and stationery packs for $2.50 each to go toward posting some of our boxes, so if you need these you can include $5 in your box and she will pop these in the shoebox for you before they are collected.

Thanks for touching hearts and changing lives.

First Ever Theatre Restaurant!
Picture this!
A concrete undercover area transformed into a stunning outdoor dining precinct by professional lights, a stage with a fully dressed set, and beautifully set tables; festoon lights leading the way through the beautiful NCC gardens; elegantly dressed Senior students ushering people to their seats; waiters ready to serve drinks, and musicians ready to entertain. Such was NCC’s first-ever theatre restaurant event.

Throughout the evening, The Mouse Trap, one of Agatha Christie’s most famous mysteries, was brilliantly performed on stage by the Year 11 Drama class (Paige, Ryan, Jack, Jasper, Emma, Latisha, Banjo, plus Hyeon in his first-ever stage performance) as the audience enjoyed an elegant three-course dinner on a beautifully transformed undercover area. With the team from Hospitality working fast and furiously in the kitchen under the direction of Chef Shuttleworth, Ashleigh Hoeksema and Debbie Griffith, the audience would never have suspected the frantic pace behind the scenes as the wait staff calmly and professionally presented each beautiful dish to the tables. As an added bonus, dinner was accompanied by beautiful live music by the talented Georgia Schravemade, Ella Sinclair and Georgina Cooper. It is fair to say that everyone who came was blown away by the standard of music, acting and culinary skills of our NCC students. A huge thank you to the amazing staff of the CAPA and Hospitality Departments, and the students who gave so much of their time and talent to make our first theatre restaurant event such a huge success. You deserve the accolades that have been coming your way. Well done.

We hope to see you next year at our next theatre restaurant event. Stay tuned!
