To celebrate our last community access excursion for Term Two, D7 students from the Support Unit, Mrs Houley, Mrs Zell and Mrs Cottrill ventured to Feathers Café to indulge in hot chocolates and milkshakes. Students have gained valuable life skills from participating in this program in areas including literacy and numeracy, road safety, shopping and cooking. Such a program has allowed students to develop their skills and independence. We look forward to community access continuing next term.
On Sunday 24 June, Felicity Maher, Hannah Meier, Milly Smith, Declan Eshman, Mya Stone and Liam Russell entertained shoppers and stall holders at the monthly Sunday Markets in Coonabarabran.
“Here are some sneak peak photos from the upcoming production of We Will Rock You on this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 7.30pm and Saturday matinee from 2.30pm. Don’t miss out – get your tickets from Prezzies, School, or at the door.”
Throughout Semester One, students in D7 have been working on a gardening unit in Technology. This has included the planting of sunflowers, beans and peas in our garden. Growing our own produce has many benefits including encouraging students to eat healthier, relieves stress, improves focus and memory and positively improves student mood and wellbeing. Students have enjoyed learning about the requirements necessary for a plant to grow. Our beans were sprouted in cotton wool then transferred to soil outside, and we are currently growing beans in a maze inside shoe boxes, to see whose bean will reach the light first. These will also be transferred to our garden once they sprout.
We look forward to being able to eat our produce in our cooking lessons.
These unique top hats were made by D2 students during Technology as possible costume accessories for the School Musical.
They used duct tape and plastic bags, which were ironed together, created patterns and pieced it all together with decorative details, proving that incredible results can be achieved with simple materials.
