During NAIDOC Week Mr Ashby and Mrs Stanton along with some of our year 8 students attended Yuluwirri NAIDOC Day. The students helped to teach Gamilaraay Language, which they have been learning in LOTE to some of the children. It was a great morning. Thank you to Yuluwirri Kids for inviting us.
On Friday 6 September at 7pm, Coonabarabran High School will be hosting “Celebrate CHS”. This event is an opportunity for the school to showcase students’ work. There will be a concert featuring some of the school’s musicians, as well as a scene from the recent Shakespeare festival. During interval, the audience will be able to view displays by the various faculties at the school, as well as some of the HSC students’ D&T and Industrial Technology major works. Entry is by gold coin donation and the Year 9/10 Commerce students will be selling refreshments during interval. Come and join us for a delightful evening!
Year 11 student Annabelle Shannon and Year 10 student Lachlan Eshman have been selected from more than 120 applications for the 2019 Secretary for a Day.
Feast of Pi
The annual mathematics celebration “Feast of Pi” will be held across two days, on Monday 29 July, the school will host UNSW outreach group. Then on Friday the 9 August, the UNE Discovery Bus will be making a visit.
Junior students (7-10) will be attending workshops on both days. The workshops are all held at the school. Some senior students will also be attending workshops throughout the day.
Class teachers will be letting students know more about the workshops they will be attending closer to the day.
There is no cost to students as the “Feast of Pi” has been funded through equity programs.
We are really looking forward to the day, and are sure the students will really benefit from the activities – they will provide a different aspect of mathematics in the real world.
