D7 performs at Cooinda!

This term the D7 class have been practising tirelessly on their ukuleles and singing in order to participate in a concert for the residents of Cooinda. Students performed several songs on their ukuleles and sang a range of Christmas songs and old time favourites. Students were well received by the audience and staff at Cooinda.
Dedicated Music teacher, Nancy Doolan, accompanied students along with SLSO Vanessa Houley and Narelle Pfieffer, who drove the bus.
The students are now known as ‘The Rising Stars’. Not only have they performed at Cooinda, but they have also participated in a show case concert at the High School in Term 3. Students have shown great enthusiasm and will continue to learn new songs in the New Year.

See below some video highlights of their performance! Read more »

D2 Technology

 

So far this term, D2 students have been testing out their up-cycling skills in Technology and have revamped some sad looking chairs, transforming them into groovy designer pieces!

Everyone made their little contribution, the chairs look amazing, and…there are requests from some staff members to fix theirs too!

D1 STEM mini Project

Students in D1 Science with Miss Rankmore had the opportunity to work on a mini STEM hands-on project called ‘Circuit Scribe’ this week. In this project, students used a conductive silver pen, power source (mini battery), a slider and an LED light to make a circuit. When the conductive pen was used correctly to join the parts and complete the circuit, the LED lights lit up. This follows up the unit on Electricity the students studied this semester.

Support Unit Warrumbungle & EEC excursion

Last Tuesdsay, students from the support unit enjoyed a day out at the Warrumbungle National Park Environmental Education Centre.  They learnt how to use binoculars and contemplated some amazing views, explored the new visitor centre’s interactive displays, completed a photo scavenger hunt, observed  reptiles and marsupials in their natural habitats and foraged in the leaf litter using magnifying lenses to get up close with bugs, grubs and other peculiar insects.  An exciting and relaxing day for all.

D7 – Destination Dubbo

We set off at 8.30am with Ms Poyser as our awesome driver. Will, Tabitha, Morgan and Nellie were chatting away merrily on the journey. Although none wanted a toilet stop in Gilgandra, suddenly we had to make an emergency stop at the ‘destroyed, stinky toilet’ at Mathaguy. Students thought that they may have been eaten by the toilet. But alas, no!

Pencil sketches

D1 class have been working on a portfolio of work in Visual Arts, focusing on pencil sketches. Students have been looking at an image and then drawing what they see – drawing freehand from reference. Parts of the human face, shoes and eyes have formed the inspiration for their works so far and they have had some considerable success.
