The Opens Netball team travelled to Wee Waa on Tuesday 3rd July 2018 to play their Opens side. Coonabarabran High School played a fantastic game and easily came away with the win 37-12. The defence end (Ale, Alirah and Wilmie) combined well together and kept their scoring to a minimum. The attack end (Sophie, Claire and Molly) were accurate when shooting and kept running for the full 50 minutes. The centre court players (Kate, Kiara, Meg and Claudia) allowed the play to move freely to the attack end by continually breaking, passing and attacking the ball. Congratulations girls on a well deserved victory.
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:
On Friday the 15 June, 26 Coonabarabran High students set off to Coolah for the Annual North West Cross Country. The running conditions were good to start with as there was no rain or wind, however, as the day wore on the wind picked up and made conditions rather fresh. At the end of the day the athletes surprised themselves with many personal best times recorded and it was pleasing to see a sizable group of year 7 students coming through. Coonabarabran has seven runners qualifying for the CHS Titles in Sydney on 27 July. They are:
1st Ashleigh Smith
2nd Emma West-Kuras and Daniel Kenyon
4th Lachlan Eshman and Niamh Whittall
5th Octavia Whale
6th Claire Butcher
We wish them all the best at state.
Tom and Sam Bowman and Tyson Heyward attended the North West Lawn Bowls trials in Armidale on 30 May.
Both Tom and Sam were selected to represent North West at the State Championships to be held later in the year. Tyson is a shadow reserve.
Team building exercises are very important for the students in the Support Unit. Engaging students in a fun activity makes the learning even more effective. Students in D1 are seen here working together using a parachute to build their team skills. Sharon Rankmore
