NEGS News Term 4, Week 4

Reflecting on this week, I am filled with immense pride and excitement as our teachers and students continue to engage in their learning, both inside and outside the classroom.

Please enjoy reading this week's newsletter, where this success is genuinely celebrated:

  • From commending our Cattle Team for their results at the Upper Hunter Beef Bonanza last week-end,
  • Our Celebration of Sports evening held this week,
  • Our Senior girls representing NEGS at the IGSA Festival of Speech, the Ethics Olympiad and Armidale Dumaresq Lions Club’s Youth of the Year competition,
  • Junior school students William Gibbs, Matilda Travers and Charlotte Travers, who represented NEGS at IPSHA Gymnastics in Sydney,
  • The final ringing of the bell for our Year 2023 cohort as the HSC concludes.         

This week, our Middle Leaders had the privilege of working with AIS Senior Leadership Consultants, Robyn Edwards and Helen Lee. The Leading from the Middle program is aimed at fostering individual and collective leadership development among our team.

Educational research and leadership theory formed the foundation of this learning experience. Our Middle Leaders immersed themselves in these theories, encompassing both the principles of leadership and the latest trends in middle leadership within educational institutions.

Throughout the program, our leaders were encouraged to connect with and challenge their existing notions of leadership. They were prompted to reflect on their own leadership experiences and to broaden their horizons in ways that will ultimately benefit NEGS and our students.

I am excited to witness the impact of this program as it unfolds at NEGS. The insights gained and the bonds formed will undoubtedly contribute to a more dynamic and effective leadership culture within our school.

On a different note, I would like to express my gratitude to John and Annette Cassidy, who generously hosted the 'Merilba day' for our boarding students. Their warm hospitality allowed our students to enjoy a day filled with swimming, squash, tennis, a BBQ lunch, and a scavenger hunt. Their support and generosity are truly appreciated.

As the next few weeks unfold, I look forward to sharing more of the work and initiatives to achieve our strategic objectives. Our commitment to ensuring that every student can be their best has never been stronger. Growth is key—the growth of our students, our teaching practices, our campus and facilities and, importantly, our enrolments. I thank you for your advocacy of NEGS and am delighted to introduce the Referral@NEGS Initiative. Please read more in the newsletter below or contact Lyn O'Neill, Director of Marketing and Enrolments.

I look forward to our community gathering next Friday for our Twilight Market, and I hope to see you then.

Thank you for your continued support and contributions to our community, together we are creating a more vibrant NEGS for your sons and daughters so they can be their very best @ NEGS.

Congratulations must go to all the award winners at this week’s Celebration of Sport dinner.

Celebrating success and effort is something we should always do. However, the award winners only make up a small percentage of what makes our co-curricular program a success. For every coach's award or most outstanding achievement, there is a long list of others that contribute to that person's accolades. It’s the teammate that played out of position or doubled up on their commitment so they would have a team. It’s the parent that took them to training and games and carnivals and training and clinics and physios and shows. It’s the coach who gave up their time or went to their game instead of watching their child play. It’s the officials who gave up their time to judge or umpire or time or score or get blamed for the loss and never thanked for the win.

I am not saying that the individual does not deserve the award because they do, but it is important to acknowledge that nothing happens without the collective effort of the team, the group, and the unit.

While driving the Cattle team home from Scone last week, I listened to the book “The Resilience Project” by Hugh Van Cuylenburg. In short, it is a story of a search for what makes people happy and then a career spent sharing that message. Hugh, eventually decided that three things sat centrally in this space: Gratitude, Empathy and Mindfulness. 

Focusing on what we do have, not what we don’t have. Being able to understand how others think or feel. Being able to be present in the moment. These are all things that we need to practice, just like we do with our different sporting endeavours, practice makes perfect. So, when reflecting on our year in sport, think about those who were part of your team, group or unit and be grateful that they were there to share it with you. Take time to understand how your actions made others think and feel about their experience, and take time to close your eyes, breathe deeply and be happy that you have the opportunity to be at NEGS. 

Mr Jamie Moore

Deputy Principal


It’s a simple word, but it’s not a simple thing to cultivate. Having great conviction in a particular set of ideals is typically the work of a lifetime, or at least a concerted endeavour of reflection and consideration in response to a particular set of challenges. 

Speaking with conviction is also simple, yet it is likewise a skill that takes time and effort to cultivate. It’s all well and good to ‘fake it until you make it’ and mock up some bravado, but true conviction, “to say what you believe in a manner that bespeaks the determination with which you believe it” - in the words of Slam Poet Taylor Mali – is a challenge worthy of us all.

It has been a great privilege, then, to see such conviction shining forth in the public speaking endeavours of our young women this term. Beyond the obvious benefits of being able to communicate powerfully with an audience, the academic skills required to craft a great speech or reading, and the analytical skills to ‘think on your feet’ that come with public speaking are an academic endeavour of great merit.

In this light, 10 NEGS speakers sojourned to Sydney to participate in the IGSA Festival of Speech in Week 2, to duke it out on the proverbial big stage:

Ruby Holgate, Senior Public Speaking and Impromptu

Grace Rogers, Senior Readings

Mackenzie Ellem, Junior Public Speaking and Impromptu

Sasha-Lily Scott-Hamilton, Junior Readings

Dominique Baker, Junior Poetry

Callie Jarrett, Vivienne McGinty, and Hannah Murray, Religious & Ethical Questions

Pippa Robinson, Soapbox

Mirabelle McGinty, Soapbox.

This was our first time at this competition in recent memory, and the girls executed themselves and represented their school with distinction. NEGS placed middle of the pack in terms of overall results, which, given this is the first competition of this type the students have participated in, reflects meritoriously on the students and their efforts. Kudos NEGS.

Earlier in the year, the NEGS senior team progressed from the NSW division to the International division of the Ethics Olympiad. This past Wednesday, our Year 7 debaters competed in the NSW Middle School Ethics Olympiad, receiving an honourable mention from the judges. Congratulations to Callie Jarrett, Sasha-Lily Scott-Hamilton, Charlotte Johnstone, Mackenzie Ellem, and Hannah Murray (who stepped in for Emily Ulrick) for a fine effort in grappling with complex ethical conundrums whilst very much thinking on their feet. Ethical dilemmas discussed included lying and peer pressure, the complexities of group work, honesty, authenticity and the natural world, responsibility, social policy and monetary incentives, the suffering of innocents, and our relationship with animals. 

Wednesday past also saw the Public Speaking dinner for the Armidale Dumaresq Lions Club’s Youth of the Year competition. Katherine Edwards, Year 11 pilot in training and Deputy Head Prefect, presented a well-crafted speech on the underrepresentation of women in the aviation industry. It was a tight contest against some of Armidale’s most impressive young people, and Katherine held her own and represented her school in the community in a manner befitting the history and traditions of NEGS. 

So, conviction. It may not be a prize easily won, but many of our young people are well and truly on a pathway to cultivating this most richly rewarding of character traits.


Mr Ryan Caldwell

Director of Teaching and Learning

Here at NEGS, we have a rich tradition of celebrating the remarkable achievements of our students.  From academic progress and excellence to outstanding performances in the arts and sporting field. We take pride in acknowledging and applauding our students' hard work and success. Our Celebration of Sport was a wonderful opportunity that allowed us to recognise and commend our sports achievers both in their level of ability, participation and service to our program.

Last week, in line with World Teachers Day, we also paused to recognise our devoted staff. Thank you to our student leadership team for 2024, who recognised every teacher with a personalised card.

Our educators, administration, and support staff strive to create an enriching learning environment and are the fabric of our school. It is their commitment, dedication, and passion for education that makes NEGS a place where students thrive—last week, we turned the spotlight on them, expressing our deepest gratitude for their unwavering commitment to our purpose.

In particular, we are delighted to honour one of our own. Mrs Deanna Ford was awarded the prestigious JA Sutherland Award at the ACER/NEEC Awards Evening. This award recognises individuals who have made a significant contribution to the field of education. Mrs Ford's outstanding commitment, innovative teaching approaches, and unwavering dedication to fostering a supportive learning atmosphere for our students have received well-deserved recognition.

These accomplishments serve as an inspiration to all of us at NEGS Junior School. It is a testament to the high standards of excellence that our staff members bring to their roles every day. Mrs Ford’s recognition on a regional level reinforces our belief in the exceptional calibre of educators and staff within our school community.

I would personally like to take a moment to thank all our staff for their dedication, hard work, and passion, and I am grateful for their commitment to the growth of our students.  As we continue to celebrate the successes of our students and the dedication of our staff, thank you for being a part of our wonderful community, where excellence is a shared pursuit.

Mrs Heidi Dent

Junior School Coordinator and Year 6 Teacher

Referral @NEGS Initiative

The launch of our new Strategic Plan focuses on fostering growth and personalised learning experiences @ NEGS. Our commitment to ensuring that every student can be their best has never been stronger.

With this vision in mind, we are delighted to introduce the Referral@NEGS Initiative. We firmly believe that the NEGS Community, and especially our parents, are our most powerful advocates, and we want to reward you for referrals that will build our community. Our way of saying thanks.

NEGS is more than just a school; it's a community. By helping introduce like-minded families to our school community, you play a crucial role in expanding our NEGS family. We look forward to welcoming your family and friends and appreciate the trust you place in us in educating your young people.

If you are interested in participating in this initiative and would like to discuss the details, please feel free to get in touch with me, Director of Marketing and Enrolments, Ms. Lyn O'Neill.

IPSHA Gymnastics

On Thursday, 2 November, Charlotte Travers (Year 5), Matilda Travers (Year 3) and William Gibbs (Year 4), represented NEGS at the IPSHA Gymnastics competition, at Sydney Gymnastics and Aquatic Centre. Charlotte was awarded a Silver medal, Matilda a gold medal and Will placed well in the boys division. Congratulations, team, you represented the school with the most beautiful sportsmanship and came away with fabulous results. NEGS is very proud of you!


Celebration of Sports Evening

It was such a joy to have our NEGS community come together on Wednesday, 1 November, to celebrate and recognise our students’ sporting achievements of the year from the equestrian, livestock and sporting disciplines. Our guest speaker, Peta Bradley, shared with us her journey into ice swimming and needless to say, we were amazed at her dedication to the sport and the way she pushed herself and her body beyond their limits. She inspired our students that anything is possible when you apply yourself.

Thank you to our special guests, Mr Lyall Cameron and Mrs Anna Bullard, and our NEGS families who were able to join us. Thank you to the coaches and staff for attending in support of our students and to the marketing team in their organisation of the event. It was a lovely evening and we look forward to celebrating more sporting achievements next year.

Welcome back to another exciting edition of our Boarding Newsletter! 📰

The past two weeks in our boarding community have been nothing short of action-packed, with our girls fully immersing themselves in various activities and adventures. From EC events to the Cattle Club trip to Scone, and our sport representative teams giving their all on weekends, we've been on the move!

Halloween Extravaganza 🎃
Halloween brought an opportunity for our girls to get creative and dress up for a spooky evening in the dining hall. Year 10, in particular, took it to a whole new level, showing off their outstanding costumes and their knack for having a good time.


Culinary Delights 🍰
Our White House and Kirkwood House have been whipping up delicious cupcakes that have become the talk of the town. Not only have they been busy creating these yummy treats, but they've also been enjoying every bite. Who can resist a good cupcake, right?

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Adventure 🍫
Mrs. Murphy took five lucky girls to see the captivating performance of "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," presented by PLC. It was an unforgettable experience, and we're sure those who attended had a sweet time!

House Transitions 🏠
Exciting news for our Year 10 students! They have the opportunity to move to Saumarez House, with Ms. Everingham joining them on this exciting journey. Meanwhile, Mrs. Cassidy will look after our Year 9 students until the end of the term. We appreciate your understanding and support during this transition.

Upcoming Events 🗓
Hold onto your hats because we've got some major events lined up for you. The Farrer Social on Tuesday 28 November, promises to be a fantastic evening filled with fun and camaraderie. And, if that's not enough, get ready for our upcoming closed weekend 2nd December trip to Coffs Harbour and the Big Banana Fun Park. It's going to be a blast!

Thank you to all our families for your continued support and understanding. We couldn't do it without you.

Stay tuned for more exciting updates in the weeks to come. We can't wait to see what adventures await us in the world of boarding!

Until next time, take care and stay fabulous. 😄🌟

Sincerely, The Boarding Team

Mrs Meg Laverty

Head of Boarding

The Magic Millions NEGS Horse Trials are coming up quickly. This is an enormous event for NEGS, where we are expecting to have up to 200 competitors and 400 spectators around the grounds over the weekend of the 18/19 of November. 

We are super excited to see the Horse Trials back after a 3-year hiatus caused by Covid and floods. It has then taken an enormous amount of work from our hugely dedicated and hard-working team of parent helpers, along with generous donations of supplies from local businesses and NEGS families, to get the course back to competition standard and looking as great as it now does. It really has taken a village to get the event back up and going, not only in the rejuvenation of the course but in gaining sponsorship for the event, raising funds via various raffles, jump club days and BBQs, as well as those families who are on the committee helping to organise the competition itself, including volunteers, judges and organising equipment. Every little bit has helped. It has also been great to see so many of our students grabbing a paintbrush and spending a few hours down on the cross-country course painting fences. We are so grateful for those students who see the value and pleasure in giving back selflessly. 

If any families, or friends of NEGS would be interested in volunteering over the weekend, please click on this link to offer your assistance. Over 40 volunteers will be required to help run the event, so please share this Google form with anyone who you think would be interested in and available to help. We seek help with jump judging, pencilling, timekeeping, marshalling, running scores and organising volunteers.

Even if you are not 'horsy' there are many ways in which you can help.

NEGS will run the canteen over the weekend, so we will need some help with families happy to do an hour or two on the canteen, either serving or cooking. We would also really appreciate some baked goods to sell. Please fill out the Google form above if you are happy to help out in the canteen, and any food items to sell can be dropped into the EC office on either Friday afternoon or Saturday morning.

It will be wonderful to see many of our NEGS girls competing at the event alongside riders from all over NSW and Southern QLD. The Saturday will see dressage in the morning, followed by Show Jumping in the indoor arena on the Saturday afternoon. Sunday will bring more show jumping and all the cross-country action full of thrills and the occasional spill. Spectators can view almost the entire course from the top of the hill. It will be a morning well spent if you can attend.

We want to take the time to thank our generous sponsors. Firstly, we have been honoured to have the support of Magic Millions, who has taken on the naming rights to the event. Thanks to Old Girl Tara Moxham-Jarvis for helping us connect with Magic Millions and several other sponsors! 

Magic Millions is best known for its showcase Gold Coast Yearling Sale each January. It is the company’s signature sale. However, Magic Millions operates its thoroughbred auction house all year round, conducting sales in four states of Australia. Magic Millions has also become very active in the sport horse industry, backing many events that support the rehoming and celebration of Off The Track Racehorses. Katie Page has been a huge driver of events that promote many equestrian disciplines, including the Festival of British Eventing at Gatcombe Park. We are so grateful to Katie Page and the Magic Millions team for their support of NEGS.

Yarraman Park has taken on the 1* class. Georgie Mitchell is a NEGS Old Girl so it is pretty exciting to have her stud Yarraman Park as a supporter.

The EVA95 is supported by our student Katie Moffitt, who has recently started a photography business, KSM Equine Shots. Katie has been taking photos at several events over the last few months and getting quite the following. Katie will also be taking photos at the event, which, judging by the photos she has taken of our girls, will be fantastic!

The EVA80 is sponsored by Edwards Coaches, who regularly transport our students to and from school, and we are very grateful for their continued support as they have sponsored our event several times.

The EVA65 is sponsored by BHIMA Thoroughbreds owned by one of our NEGS families and the parents of Jasmine Fleming. We are super excited to have BHIMA stud onboard.

Mt Riddock Station sponsors the EVA50, yet another one of our NEGS Families and the parents of Imogen Cadzow. They even have a wikipedia page. How cool is that!

Godolphin Lifetime Care has jumped on board offering sponsorship for Off The Track horses (OTT) with special prizes. Godolphin Lifetime Care specialise in rehoming TB racehorses once they have finished their racing career, and are ready to take on their new career. Many of our current students’ horses are OTT's so it is great that we can be a part of such a great program.

FOGs (Former Old girls), have sponsored one of the cross-country fences and are always great supporters of NEGS. FOGs is a group of school friends, many still competing at ODEs, who finished school at negs in 1986 and consists of Tara Moxham-Jarvis (née Moxham), Susie Hynes (née Davis), Tanya Bartlett Murdock (née Bartlett), Shara Menzies (née Ibbott), Debbie Kelley (née Gavel), Gaby Biviano (née Palmer), an EA dressage coach and Xanthe Harper Friend, who swapped riding horses in eventing competitions in Qld for lifeboats, and competes at elite level in surf boat races. Jen Peel (née Lovett), is our group photographer and fabulous horse holder. 

Debbie is competing in the EVA95 on a horse she bred. 

Tanya is competing in the EVA 80 also on a horse she bred. 

Tara Jarvis and her daughter Anna, a recent old girl, are both riding horses they have bred.

Susie is competing two in the EVA80. A stock horse called Zimba and a TB called Jimmy.

Shara is competing in the EVA80 on an OTTB named “Twist n Time” competing 80. 

We hope to inspire other old girls to continue to ride and compete even if, like Shara, the gap was 30 years between wearing the NEGS uniform and competing and getting out again. We wish you all a successful competition as you soar over Fogs logs.

Britt Grovenor is sponsoring one of our cross-country jumps and will be on the grounds at the event, taking photos over the weekend.

Finally, we are incredibly lucky to have our favourite and super-experienced vet, Callum Paltridge, from Thunderbolt Equine as a vet on the grounds over the weekend. Callum has looked after both our students and school horses over many years, and we are so grateful for the care and attention to detail he takes. Callum has gone above and beyond for our horses time and time again. His knowledge and experience allow us to trust that when our horses are in his care, they will be well looked after.

We can't wait to have everyone back in the masses to enjoy the amazing facilities we have here at NEGS. If you have some time to come along, I highly recommend it!

Mrs Annyka Overton

Equestrian Centre Coordinator

On Thursday, 25 October, 12 NEGS students travelled to Scone to participate in the Upper Hunter Beef Bonanza 2023. Along with these students, the school took down ten animals, ready for a busy weekend of competition. The ten animals consisted of 6 speckled park steers, one limousin steer, one south devon heifer, one Murray grey heifer and a limousin cross drought master heifer. 

The girls had worked extremely hard over 12 weeks leading up to the show and were very keen to show off the fantastic cattle they had produced. The group was welcomed to Scone on Thursday evening by a much-needed 25 millimetres of rain, which was great for the region but less than ideal for outdoor camping. Nevertheless, the girls all worked together washing the cattle in preparation for Friday's events. 

Friday came, and with the presence of steady rain, the preparation began. The cattle were first weighed to determine which classes each would be competing in. Each animal was assigned a class based on their weight to ensure they could compete against similar-sized animals. Following the weigh-in, the cattle were once again washed and kept clean, ready for the first competition classes on Saturday morning. Jessica Taylor (Year 10), was lucky enough to be involved in a trip to the Scone abattoirs on Friday night, where she tried her hand in carcass judging along with a group of other Year 10,11 and 12 students. 

It was a 5:30am start for the group on Saturday morning. As this was our first day of competition, the students were slightly nervous but excited to find out how their cattle would perform. Kicking off the competition were the steer and heifer classes. These classes involve each animal being led around the ring, whereby they are judged on their visual appearance, including factors such as muscle mass, fat distribution, body structure and overall uniformity. 

Scandalous (speckle park steer), led by Jessica Taylor, received third place in the heavy middleweight class. Sweet & Sassy (limousin cross droughtmaster), led by Amelia Fiechtner, received fifth place in the prime heifer class. Lastly, in the led classes, Striker (speckle park steer), led by Meg Trindall, was awarded a highly commended ribbon in the heavy middleweight steer class.

Saturday afternoon began the paraders competition, starting with ages 14 and under. Paraders involve each student being judged based on their ability to lead the cattle around the ring and present themselves and the cattle in a way that shows their handling ability and presentation skills. The cattle themselves are not taken into account when judging paraders; it is purely the student's ability to present the cattle. 

Despite some nerves, the 14 and under girls did a fantastic job at presenting the cattle. Aliyah McDonald did a terrific job receiving second place for her performance in the ring. Ella Currie earned third place in her heat, while Amelia Fiechtner picked up her second ribbon in the ring with fourth place for her leading ability. Macey Cabot achieved fifth place in her heat and lastly, Emily Simpson was recognised for her work by being awarded a highly commended ribbon. This wrapped up the 14-year and under-paraders competition. These girls did a fantastic job in the ring, and the experience will undoubtedly hold them in good stead for years to come.

Saturday ended with another round of cattle washing before an early dinner and a lot of rest for another big day on Sunday.

Sunday was another early start, with junior judging being the first event on the cards. This was a new test for some of our students as this required them to draw on their knowledge from the previous day to accurately judge cattle based on the same criteria used for the led classes. This saw students answer questions based on the structure and size of different animals. They were, ultimately, putting themselves in the judge's shoes. This was a very tough competition, and unfortunately, we missed out on a place in the final for junior judging. 

It was now time for the students 15 years and older to compete in their paraders competition, so after some quick preparation, the competition began. Tameka Kunoth scored fifth in her heat, and Meg Trindall received a fourth-place ribbon. Jessica Taylor was next in the ring and did a great job displaying her leading skills, landing her in second place for her heat. Lastly, Heidi Zwiers outdid all the other competitors with a great display of skill and ability to take out first place and Champion Parader for her heat. This is a terrific result for Heidi and the NEGS team. This ended the competition events at this year's Upper Hunter Beef Bonanza.

Overall, NEGS did an outstanding job throughout the weekend. The teamwork and dedication each student showed were commendable, and the results indeed affirmed that. For our younger girls, the experience was invaluable, and our older girls once again showed their skill with a raft of good results. Huge thanks must go to Chloe Grey, the cattle team coach, who does an amazing job teaching the girls and ensuring every animal is in perfect condition for all events. She has put countless hours into this program, and the girls are very grateful for her expertise. Other thanks must go to Mr Jamie Moore for taking time out of his busy schedule to drive the students to and from the event. Lastly, a big thank you to Merilba South Devon Cattle and Charlie Sutherland from Deeargee Speckle Park Stud, for providing such exceptional cattle for the girls to display.
