VARIETY IS THE SPICE OF LIFE AT COOLABUNIA
COOLABUNIA students are always keen to expand their perspective of the world around them.
Prep– Year 3 day at Duckadang
PREP– Year 3 students have just returned from an amazing day at Camp Duckadang.
Every student’s resilience was put to the test on low ropes, swimming challenges, mini golf and a range of fun games.
Staff and parents were amazed at the students’ ability to adapt to new challenges and their ability to keep going.
Year 4– 6 Brisbane bound – Coolabunia and Kumbia
YEAR 4– 6 students joined with colleagues from Kumbia SS on a three- day excursion to Brisbane.
Joining with the Kumbia students is a powerful means to develop the necessary social skills required in the transition to high school.
All students were dazzled by the Brisbane Planetarium, captivated by their tour of Parliament House; and meeting Member for Nanango, Mrs Deb Frecklington.
The thought of kilometres of gold trims throughout the building and the traditions of Parliament will stay with them for a very long time.
Students toured the Gallery of Modern Art, Qld Art Gallery and the Sciencentre before taking a relaxing dip in the pool at Southbank.
The view from The Brisbane Eye at night was a wonderful opportunity to get a real perspective of the size and scale of Brisbane.
Physical determination and resilience were certainly tested when students ventured onto the ice- skating rink and Bounce Trampoline.
Premier’s Reading Challenge – 100% AGAIN
FOR the ninth time, all students have met the Premier’s Reading Challenge.
Member for Nanango Deb Frecklington presented certificates to students.
Students at Coolabunia are certainly getting the message that reading is the key to success in life.
ONE prize box at Coolabunia has a very different twist. Students collect stickers as rewards for good behaviour and hard work, and these they can trade for a “pick of the prize box”. Once they get there, they have a chance to do yet another good deed! Students can choose, instead of a prize for themselves, to send a chicken to a poor family in Africa. These chickens mean that poor families can have fresh eggs and a source of income.
Our silkworms, are they here yet?
IN SCIENCE this term, Year 2 students are busily investigating how plants and animals grow. Their latest investigation is to watch and wait for their silkworms to hatch and grow. Their patience is certainly being put to the test.
Coolabunia P- 3 students on the low ropes course. Hang on! Coolabunia State School's silkworms will appear any day now. GREAT TRIP: The view from The Brisbane Eye is fantastic. Coolabunia State School students Nick and Stephanie examine the new I’m a Good Egg certificates, which will be what they get from the prize box if they choose to send a chicken to a poor family in Africa.
