Noranda Students on Show
Several of our year 5 and 6 students have featured in the Ed! Section of the West Australian newspaper. The students were asked to respond to two questions: What is your favourite scary novel? or; What message would you give to world leaders today?
I wonder if there is a budding journalist among them!

Nationally Consistent Collection of Data for School Students with Disability
From the Principal
Our school is part of a national project about students with disability and/or learning difficulties.
We have been asked to provide data about the number and learning needs of children at our school. The name of the school and the name of the students will not be reported. Information about the different types of needs and the programs and resources the school uses to overcome barriers and support children with special educational needs will be collected.
We believe it is important to contribute to this because it will help Governments and the Department develop better policies that acknowledge the level of resources needed in schools to meet the needs of all students in Western Australia.

Coolbinia Cross Country
Congratulations to the students who competed in this event on Wednesday 16th August.
The squad had trained very hard with students either joining the Running Club before school or training at lunchtimes twice a week.
The team performed very well with many personal bests and nine top ten finishers.
Special mention to Kai who won the year 6 boys race and Abby who was second in the year 6 girls.
Thankyou also to the parents and staff for their support – it really was a great afternoon.
