Welcome! Thanks for visiting our website. We are glad you are here. We are officially known as “The Northern Illawarra Combined Churches Christian Education Board” but more commonly known as the Northern Illawarra Scripture Board or NISB. Our board was set up in late 2007 to provide Scripture Teachers to Bulli, Woonona and Corrimal High Schools.
NEWS UPDATE MAY 2022
Term TWO is well underway and our Teachers/Chaplain are having a good re-entry, with plenty of serving opportunities occurring around the annual NAPLAN week. We will present more snippets soon, but if you would like to meet our teachers, chaplain and Scripture Board team, our ‘Coffee and Dessert Night’ is just around the corner. (see promo above) Join us on June the 8th from 7pm at NIUC on the corner of Princes Hwy and Point St Bulli. Your entry fee helps us fill some gaps in our fund raising coffers and it entitles you to all the the coffee you can drink and cake you can eat, live music from NISB favourites ‘KayGee’, a brief but insightful message from Generate Field Development Manager, and scripture in High Schools ‘lifer’ Nathan, as well as up close and personal interaction with Dal, Clara, Leanne and Amanda as they share some of the highs and lows of their work in the school communities. Looking forward to making your re-acquaintance after a couple of absent years and DON’T FORGET, your church delegates will be providing order forms for the annual PIE DRIVE shortly, so be on the look out for that.
As the sun went down on Term One about 3 weeks after the Commissioning of our Scripture Teachers and Chaplain @ C3 Church Thirroul, Leanne was formally and fondly farewelled as Scripture Teacher and Chaplain at Corrimal HS. Pictured above right with Paul, CHS’s Principal, Leanne was honoured and given gifts by staff as she moves now to start work at Bulli HS in Term Two. The Board prayerfully determined, in consultation with the teachers late last year, that it would be a Godly and timely move to swap Leanne with Clara, who has had a delightful first term introduction to teaching scripture at Corrimal HS.
In other news, we were finally able to get back on the public fund raising horse after a two year hiatus, and our committed team of Jennifer, Will and David (pictured left and centre above) were partnered with a number of young people from Bulli Anglican Church (delegates at the Katoomba Youth Convention with nearly 1500 other High School students) to help us serve hungry attendees at our annual BBQ Fund Raiser at the Convention Centre. So thankful to Andy from the Wollongong Scripture Board and the coordinating team that gives us the green light for this effort each year, and of course our heartfelt gratitude goes to our small team and all who supported them.
