Narrabri Music Eisteddfod 2021
On Monday 24 May 2021, ten students from Coonabarabran High School participated in the Music section of the Narrabri Eisteddfod. Two HSC students – Tashani Clarke and Lawrance Little – participated in the non-competitive HSC section. In this section, HSC students have the opportunity to perform two of their performance pieces to the adjudicator for feedback. Both Tashani and Lawrance played well and they received some encouraging feedback.
The remaining eight students participated in the competitive categories. They not only performed well, but also managed to win a medal for first position each! Their medals were for the following categories:
Sam Bowman: Woodwind Solo Study – 15 years and under
Monique Bragg: Secondary Vocal Section – Solo Popular Song Yrs 10, 11 & 12
Clover Hippisley: Woodwind Classical Solo – 19 years and under

The students should not only be congratulated on their fine performances, but also their fantastic behaviour and support of each other. A huge thank you also goes to Mark Walton who teaches 6 of these students during Skype lessons every week, and Ms Di Suthons who teaches Shafin. Lastly, thank you to the parents for their help with transport and for all their support.
