The Terry McGoldrick Memorial Rugby 7s tournament was held in Coonabarabran last week with teams competing across all age divisions in both boys’ and girls’ competitions.
Coonabarabran High School had seven teams competing on the day comprising of two teams of Under 14s Boys, two teams of Under 14s Girls, an Under 16s Boys team and an Open Boys and Open Girls team, all of which performed exceptionally well on the day.
Coonabarabran High School students enthusiastically supported National Nutrition Week, an initiative of the organisation Nutrition Australia.
We are increasingly warned about the rise in the number of people who suffer from diet related diseases and how these diseases impact on the individual’s health and general wellbeing, not to mention the strain the illnesses place on our health system. Changes in our lifestyle are blamed for this epidemic. For example, Australians are now far less active than previous generations and consume far more processed foods that are high in fat and sugar and are incredibly energy dense.
To raise awareness of some simple strategies that they can adopt to improve their diet, and hence their general wellbeing, the students were set daily challenges. That is:
Bus Safety Week is part of the ‘Be Bus Aware’ campaign which aims to reinforce the road rules relating to buses within our community and promote safer on-road interactions between pedestrians, motorists, bicycle riders and buses.
Support Unit students and staff have been working on a mural in the D1/D3 quiet space area outside D2. This mural depicts the Kosta & Kalick 16 Habits of Mind of Highly Successful People. During Term 2 and 3 students developed much patience in using pokerwork/wood burning tools to create the individual symbols. The different styles of the creators has added to the overall charm of the mural and its presence will remind students of the ways of thinking that result in success.
A great day was had by all Support Unit students and staff who attended the Oz Tag day last Tuesday, and for two of our Year 8 students ZooSnooz was awesome.
