D2 Technology​

In Technology lessons in D2, students have been working on three main projects so far this term – cooking, design and woodburning. Each week on a Friday periods 3 and 4, students in D1 and D2 get together and cook, then share a meal with each other and their teachers and SLSOs. This week it was D2’s turn to cook for everyone, and they cooked pizza, even making the dough from scratch. In design, students upcycled some wire, glass drops and beads into a pendant. In woodburning, students have started a class project to contribute to the school that will be revealed at a later date! Stay tuned!

Miss Christoff brings Biology to D1/D2!​

This term we were very fortunate to welcome the expertise of Miss Christoff, Science/Biology teacher, to D1/D2 for a science lesson on dissections.

Students watched Miss Christoff’s demonstration of a bull’s eye being dissected, while she explained what each part was, what each part did and how it was the same or different to that of a human eye.
Students were then welcomed to put on a pair of gloves and touch each of the parts, even trying to put the eye back together to see how it all worked.

Thankyou Miss Christoff for a really interesting (and a little gross!) Science lesson!

Coonabarabran High School celebrates NAIDOC Week

On Friday 26  May our school NAIDOC celebrations commenced with the arrival of our local Aboriginal Elders and community members. Dhagaan Warrumbunglee Dancers welcomed everyone into the school hall. Acknowledgement to Country was performed by ear 8 LOTE students and the NAIDOC theme for 2021 was ‘Heal Country’. Country is inherent to the identity of Indigenous Australians. It is family, kin, law, lore, ceremony, traditions, and language being this way since the dawn of time. Our activities on the day consisted of Weaving, Lingo Bingo, Dance and League Tag. A special Thank You to Dylan Neville and Steve Watton for organising the Dancers and all our staff who helped make our day a successful one.

Final 16? Yes, please!

It doesn’t matter how, but in the last week of Term Two, the Coonabarabran Open Girls Softball Team represented North West at the CHS Final 16 Tournament in a cold and miserable Newcastle. It was beautiful to watch as the team surprised themselves with their abilities and resilience on the diamond.

D1 Art Exploration

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

D1 students are participating in Abstract Art units with a little scepticism and much delight. Their use of a myriad of mark making ‘tools’ and a variety of colours from many different sources create endless possibilities and students are learning quickly to experiment and take risks in the process of making Art. I am delighted with their engagement in the process, embracing contrast and their product (and I think they are too!).

Currently on display are their Aboriginal inspired works on canvas – black and white, cross hatching, hands with henna tatoo design.
