Newsletter for November 2016
On 11 November 2016, Coonabarabran High School held an assembly to commemorate Remembrance Day. Students heard from Eugenie Martin and Brooke Meier about the significance of Remembrance Day and the sacrifices of all soldiers who have fought in war.
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:
GRIP stands for Generosity, Responsibility, Integrity and People and is the foundation of leadership. As their conference booklet states, student leadership “is both an important responsibility and a fantastic opportunity to have an impact on others, whilst growing as a leader.”
Congratulations to Ale and Kate for being selected in the NW Opens Softball Team and to Belle and Hayley for making the reserves list! In Term 1 2017 the girls will play in the State tournament in Camden. Good luck!
