A week ago the HSC Design and Technology, Industrial Technology (Timber) and Photography students held an exhibition of their major works.  The display, held in the school hall, was well attended by students, parents, staff and people from the wider community.  The students who created these amazing projects were on hand to explain the design process and manufacturing methods undertaken during the completion of the final products. The external marking for the ITW projects will take place on 31st August and D&T on 14th September.

This event allowed the students to share their success with the wider community following the culmination of many, many hours of hard work. They received great praise for their outstanding achievements.  Thank you to everyone who supported this exhibition and making it a great success.

Textbook Returns

Could all parents and caregivers please be mindful that textbooks should be returned before the end of the school year.  The English Faculty is particularly interested in receiving textbooks from Year 12 students as the next cohort will need to borrow texts before the Christmas holidays.  Thank you for your assistance in this matter.

From the 20th to the 23rd of October, Coonabarabran High School students attended The Upper Hunter Beef Bonanza for the sixth year in a row.  The weather was milder and wetter than usual with the judging day recording 20 mm making getting around very wet and boggy. The school was represented by 8 students and 5 steers all carefully prepared by Ms Hawkins over the year. The steers were successful in most of their classes with 3 out the 5 steers reaching the top 5 in their led classes and top 10 in their carcass results. Following is the report, written by Georgia Jackson of Year 8, who was one of the participants at the Show:

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:

Ag Skills Day 2016

With the wet weather forecasts in mind, the Ag Skills Day was postponed from the 23rd June to  4th August for the first time. While this change did not suit some of our presenters, the majority were happy to reschedule. However, as luck would have it, some presenters had ailments and flooding creeks to hamper their efforts to make it to the day, bringing our workshop numbers from twenty five down to twenty one. At least the weather on the day was beautiful and we ended up with muddy feet, not completely drenched as we had been in the days leading up to this event.
