Community involvement

Community Access

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.

Year 10 Girls – Project EmpowerProject Empower is a  national ‘workshop roadtrip’ that empowers teenage girls in rural and remote Australia to achieve their leadership potential.

Coonabarabran High was most fortunate to be selected for a visit on 15 May. The feedback from the team about  our Year 10 girls was super positive and the girls enjoyed ‘dreaming big’ and planning how to make those dreams a reality!
