On Friday September 6th, students worked together in their tutor groups to create a structure out of newspaper and sticky tape. Students competed in their house groups, and the tallest structure won. The morning was a success, with all students getting involved and participating. Thank you to all staff who ensured tutor groups worked well and did their best.
At term’s end – the school said thank you to all the students who each and every day bring a positive and respectful approach to their learning and interactions at school. The special morning tea was a way of acknowledging the valuable contribution these students make to our community . Thanks to our wonderful canteen ladies for supplying a delicious morning tea – it was devoured in moments !
The school community is very proud of the students who represented us at our local ANZAC Day commemoration service. Our School Captains Kiara Hawkins and Liam Russell each read a prayer, Felicty Maher sang beautifully and together with our Vice Captains, Matilda Harris and Angus Lambert, the Captains laid a wreathe to honour the service of the men and women who have served our nation. Matilda Harris proudly led the march as flag bearer.
All of the students were respectful and attentive to the solemnity of this occasion and were fine ambassadors for our school.

We left school at 10am on Sunday, after an hour wait because Mr Stewart helped a damsel in distress whose car had broken down. When he got on the bus, everyone clapped. The nine hour bus trip was fairly uneventful; however some of us played Celebrity Heads which was pretty funny. The more people that joined in, the louder the game became.
On the first night we arrived at 6pm and went straight to our accommodation and had dinner. After that, we went and got our skis, snowboards and snow gear and then went to our rooms for the night. None of us got much sleep as we talked until the late hours. Sorry to the accommodation for using up all the power to charge our phones – we even had to share power points, which was a bit rough.
The Coona High Athletics Carnival saw Tibuc come away with the win for 2018.
It was a fantastic day with participation numbers high and house spirit on show.
Congratulations to Madison Heywood who broke the 15 years javelin record!
The relays proved to be the highlight, winding the day up with many close finishes and Mr Ramage’s running commentary.
The Tom Sullivan Gift was run and won by Year 12 student Jasper Somervaille. He was very closely followed by Charley Isedale (2nd) and Darcy Abel (3rd).

Thankyou to Mr Cousens for his organisation of the day, the Warrumbungle Shire Council crew for the marking of the grounds and preparation of ovals and all staff who braved the cold wind on the day to get the job done.
Despite it being a little on the cold side, it was a successful day for all and you can see a gallery of images from the day clicking below:
