We left school at 10am on Sunday, after an hour wait because Mr Stewart helped a damsel in distress whose car had broken down. When he got on the bus, everyone clapped. The nine hour bus trip was fairly uneventful; however some of us played Celebrity Heads which was pretty funny. The more people that joined in, the louder the game became.
On the first night we arrived at 6pm and went straight to our accommodation and had dinner. After that, we went and got our skis, snowboards and snow gear and then went to our rooms for the night. None of us got much sleep as we talked until the late hours. Sorry to the accommodation for using up all the power to charge our phones – we even had to share power points, which was a bit rough.
The Coona High Athletics Carnival saw Tibuc come away with the win for 2018.
It was a fantastic day with participation numbers high and house spirit on show.
Congratulations to Madison Heywood who broke the 15 years javelin record!
The relays proved to be the highlight, winding the day up with many close finishes and Mr Ramage’s running commentary.
The Tom Sullivan Gift was run and won by Year 12 student Jasper Somervaille. He was very closely followed by Charley Isedale (2nd) and Darcy Abel (3rd).

Thankyou to Mr Cousens for his organisation of the day, the Warrumbungle Shire Council crew for the marking of the grounds and preparation of ovals and all staff who braved the cold wind on the day to get the job done.
Despite it being a little on the cold side, it was a successful day for all and you can see a gallery of images from the day clicking below:
Last week Coonabarabran High School hosted one of the world record attempt sites for the Stargazing record. A record we handily helped break!
On the night we also held a raffle 9with proceeds going to year 12 fundraising events, where Andy Jay and Bridie O’Brien won telescopes signed by Professor Brian Cox!

Students in the Support Unit have spent several hours over the past few weeks painting and preparing backdrops for the school musical ‘We Will Rock You’. This has involved teamwork, problem solving and using critical thinking skills. Students have worked tirelessly to complete this project. A fair effort in perseverance and persistence, for all students involved.
