On Monday 29 March we were very privileged to host Mark Walton for music workshops and a concert. Mark teaches twelve Coonabarabran High School students via Skype every week during lunch times and on Monday these students, together with three saxophone students in Years 7 and 8 were able to have face-to-face lessons with him. The students who have lessons with him every week are Monique Bragg, Alexander McWhirter, Sam Bowman, Riley Fleming, Declan Eshman, Caleb Smith, Luke Richards, Bree O’Neill, Clover Hippisley, Megan Hain, Ellah Bowmaker and Claire Butcher. During the lessons, Mark worked on specific repertoire with the students. Ella Atkinson, Hudson Thornhill and Beth Underwood are currently learning saxophone in Class Band and were privileged to have a 25-minute lesson with Mark, working on the basic techniques of saxophone playing.

Congratulations to all students from Years 7 to 11 who have been chosen by their peers to become part of the Student Representative Council (SRC). It will be a pleasure working with you this year.
Within the SRC the following positions have been filled:
Vance McDonald – President
Alex Freeman – Secretary
Declan Eshman – Wellbeing representative
In Term 1 2021 the SRC have already organised, with the help of Mis Rebecca Dowling, activities for the whole school on Anti Bullying Day. The involvement of all students and staff and the conversations that were started because of bullying were truly amazing.
