After an amazing effort against Quirindi both the Boy’s and Girl’s Junior Basketball Teams just missed out on making it to through to the final. Both teams played above and beyond, it was delightful to watch. Mission for next year…hit more baskets!
On Friday the 2 August, 38 Coonabarabran High students made the annual trip to Tamworth for the North West Athletics Carnival. The conditions were great with sun and a light wind to keep the temperatures down. Expectations were high and it proved correct with a record number of students qualifying for the state carnival.
Single Cup has changed days – is now Tuesday 13 August. Not Wednesday 14 August .
All students should wear sport uniform to school on Tuesday (which will run on Wednesday’s timetable for all students) . Wednesday will run on Tuesday’s timetable and all students should wear normal school uniform on that day.
Coonabarabran High School hosted a netball Gala Day on Monday 17 June against Wee Waa High School and Walgett High School. The first game was a fast and furious game between Wee Waa and Walgett. The Walgett team played a high standard of netball which resulted in Walgett being the victorious team. The second game of the day saw Coonabarabran play against Walgett. All the Coonabarabran team played fantastic netball. They combined well as a team and played with amazing talent and great sportsmanship. Coonabarabran High School were the well-deserved winners on the day. This means we progress to the next round, to be played against either Quirindi High School or Gunnedah High School.
On Friday the 14 June, 29 Coonabarabran High students set of for the Annual North West Cross Country. This year there was a change of venue and instead of heading to Coolah we were off to Mullaley. The students were all keen to take a look at the course on the walk through and most approved, as it did not have a “Heartbreak Hill,” as the Coolah course has. Coonabarabran High had an excellent year, with all students achieving beyond their means and 11 runners qualifying for the CHS Titles in Sydney on 26 July. They are:
1st Harry Willoughby
3rd Jacob Baker, Claudia Eastburn, Octavia Whale
4th Dustyn Owers, Charlie Selmes
5th Darcy Weatherall, Connor Hughes
6th Callum Wham, Rachael Evans, Luke Bonello
We wish them all the best at State.
