2018 has been an exciting year for New Hanover Prep as the school celebrates its 160th anniversary.

This special milestone in the school’s history has been, and will continue to be, celebrated throughout the year.

During the first term, the school hosted a morning for the children where a number of old pupils and people with close ties to the school came and shared their favourite (and funny!) memories of their time at NHP.

On Friday, June 8, the school celebrated their 160th anniversary with a cocktail function at the indoor centre.

Guests were entertained by the combined Oompah Band and speeches from past and present headmasters, pupils and church pastors. Guests had travelled from far and wide to attend the function and it was a lovely occasion for past pupils and parents to reminisce about their time spent at NHP.

This was a wonderful event, celebrating the past, and looking to the future, of New Hanover Prep.
