Principal's Message

Marcia Harvey

Welcome back to Semester 2! I hope you all have a wonderful break and are ready to start the second semester energised and refreshed.

We have had a very busy time over the four week break moving into the new school building here at the Bullocky Point Education Precinct site. Last week on 5th August we had our official opening. It was a wonderful celebration and you can read and see more about this fantastic event further on in this edition of the newsletter.

Our official change in name has also commenced and to assist you to find us we have launched a new website and it can be found at www.ntsde.nt.edu.au. We would encourage you to visit the new site and if you have any feedback please contact us via ntsde.admin@ntschools.net

This term will be busy with two Residential School Programs. One in Week 5 for our eligible Year 10 and Stage 1 students and then in week 7 we will be holding a Completers Residential for our eligible Stage 2 students to assist them with the final components of their subjects in the lead up to the end of the year. We look forward to welcoming those who are attending to the new school site for our first Residential Programs in the new building.

If any families are visiting Darwin and would like to come and visit our new home please feel free to do so. We are collocated on the grounds of Darwin High School on Atkins Drive, The Gardens.

This edition of our newsletter contains lots of information that I hope you will find both interesting and useful. Happy Reading.
