On Wednesday 21 May, the two HSC Music students – Ian Whittall and Tyler Watson – attended the HSC Music Study Day at Dubbo College, Senior Campus. At this event, the guest performers, Translucent Duo (Bernie Legana on saxophone and Dave Lockeridge on Marimba) played some contemporary Australian compositions written for them. These performance pieces then formed the basis of composition and aural activities and discussions. During the last session, Ian performed one of his HSC performance pieces and received lots of feedback from the presenters. All in all, it was a very constructive day!
Throughout Term 1, students in the D7 Support Class have participated in Community Access. Once a fortnight, students with their grocery list, have walked to Woolworths to purchase items for cooking. Students are involved in creating the grocery list, selecting items to be purchased, and assisting with placing items through the register. As a class we prepare our ingredients, cook our meal and sit down at the dinner table to enjoy our feast together. Students have cooked a beef stir fry, decorated biscuits, prepared a mezze plate and baked several cakes. This has been a valuable learning experience for students, learning necessary life skills which can be transferred to the home environment.
Each year the Coonabarabran High School P&C runs the main canteen building at the North West Equestrian Expo. They always rely on volunteers to keep things running, whether to man the counter, help prepare food, run the barbecue or bring food that can be sold.
Since it’s coming up again from June 1-5 it’s time to open up a call for volunteers again.
