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
Gardening is a universally accessible activity which soothes the soul.
In Coonabarabran High School’s Support Unit all students (and staff!) enjoying learning in each of the three classrooms have access to a garden at the door and it is a subject in the KLA of TAS.
Students have been working on Cosmology and Astronomy as their current unit in Science with Miss Rankmore. They have been studying how telescopes work and have been looking at major star constellations as a lead up to the Guinness World Record Stargazing Attempt at the High School this coming week. In this task, students drew the constellations, hammered in nails to hold the wool down and wrapped the wool around the nails to make the constellations, and then wood burned the title in.
