Federation Day celebrated at Coonabarabran High School

Happy Federation Day from year 9! The cohort from Coonabarabran High School participated in a mock Federation Day on Wednesday 15 August, to wrap up their Making a Nation HSIE unit. Students created projects that investigated the daily lives of Australians in 1901. The projects were then displayed in the hall and partnered with a debate. A number of students represented the arguments of each state in their decision to federate. The perspectives presented were engaging and unique, as well as thoroughly researched. Students were highly creative in their endeavours and are to be congratulated on their active participation.
