North West Athletics 2018


On Friday  10 August,  thirty-eight Coonabarabran High students made the annual trip to Tamworth for the North West Athletics Carnival. The conditions were great with the sun out and only the occasional light breeze the students were set for a good day of competition. Expectations were high and most students rose to the occasion by producing personal bests. For only the second time two Coonabarabran High students finishing first and second in a single event, the 12yrs 800m girls event, well done Emma and Claire.  We wish the best to the following students who will represent North West at the Combined High Schools Carnival in Sydney on 5 – 7  September.

Single Cup 2018

Single Cup was held in Coonamble on Wednesday 8 August with close to 100 of our students on duty to defend our title. The cup has a history that dates back to 1971 when two teachers from Coonamble High (one of whom was our ex principal Mr McEntyre) and a local businessman (Mr Ken Single) were lamenting the lack of sporting opportunities for the local school students. They contacted Coonabarabran and Gilgandra High Schools with a suggestion of a three way competition that provided competition across a range of sports. Mr Single donated the trophy and Single Cup was born.
