On Sunday 21 October, Felicity Maher, Lachlan Meier, Milly Smith, Caleb Smith and Angus Lambert entertained shoppers and stall holders at the monthly Sunday Markets in Coonabarabran. They performed in front of the Coonabarabran hotel and played live music for two and a half hours. The students performed a wide range of music and received many positive comments from passers-by as well as stallholders. Well done to these students for giving up time on a Sunday morning and performing live music! Thank you also to their parents for supporting the musicians and helping with transport. We look forward to providing some more live music at the markets next year again, and we look forward to inviting more students to perform.
We set off at 8.30am with Ms Poyser as our awesome driver. Will, Tabitha, Morgan and Nellie were chatting away merrily on the journey. Although none wanted a toilet stop in Gilgandra, suddenly we had to make an emergency stop at the ‘destroyed, stinky toilet’ at Mathaguy. Students thought that they may have been eaten by the toilet. But alas, no!
D1 class have been working on a portfolio of work in Visual Arts, focusing on pencil sketches. Students have been looking at an image and then drawing what they see – drawing freehand from reference. Parts of the human face, shoes and eyes have formed the inspiration for their works so far and they have had some considerable success.
