Cowra High School have certainly shown how as a family we have concluded the term with enthusiasm. With only one more week left of term, Cowra High students continue to be highly engaged with learning in all classrooms. Our Facebook page highlights our students and really reflects the passion they have for high expectations.
The highlight of my fortnight was with Year 9 English where the students interviewed me about my heritage, cultural celebrations and how I have settled into Cowra. I really enjoyed getting to know students from Year 9 and be part of their learning, so well done to Miss Tait and Ms Burrell who worked collaboratively together and designed an innovative lesson that was engaging for all as well as incorporating technology.
We are very proud to share with you the Indigenous Artwork that are displayed in our school foyer. Aboriginal artist, Allan Shillingsworth, designed and painted the artworks and their focus is teaching and learning where they underpin the vision of our unique rural comprehensive high school.
The collection really explores the journey were students work towards achieving their dreams in a community like Cowra where all stakeholders work together to strengthen and develop our students learning, social and emotional well-being.
