Nine Coonabarabran High School students attended the annual Band Link workshops and concerts in Narrabri from 27 to 29 November. The students who participated were: Megan Hain (clarinet), Lachlan Eshman (trombone), Clover Hippisley (clarinet), Declan Eshman (saxophone), Ellah Bowmaker (clarinet), Shafin Salim (percussion), Monique Bragg (clarinet), Alexander McWhirter (trumpet) and Tashani Clarke (flute).
This week students attended the Annual University of Western Sydney Indigenous Camp. Students participated in a number of activities ranging from Robotics, Engineering, Animal Science, 3D Printing, Rockets, Creative Industries, Teaching, Social Science, Law, Nursing and Forensic Science. Students also had the opportunity to listen to local elders who told stories about creation during dreaming and also learnt survival skills from a local bush tucker and medicine man. Thank you to Mr Ashby and Mrs Stanton for organising this trip.
So far this term, D2 students have been testing out their up-cycling skills in Technology and have revamped some sad looking chairs, transforming them into groovy designer pieces!
Everyone made their little contribution, the chairs look amazing, and…there are requests from some staff members to fix theirs too!
Some of the staff have donated/collected, a quantity of good quality clothes for both teenagers and adults. Accordingly, we invite the community to our Drought Buster Wardrobe Rummage, in the School Hall, this Saturday, 1 December from 2.00-4.00pm.
All clothing is free to take and any leftover items will be donated to St Vincent de Paul. There is no requirement to bring clothes to swap, we have plenty! Our hope is that some of the items might find a good home.
Please bring your own bags! Hope to see you on Saturday.
