    Edie, Eden, Tanika & Ysa representing us in great spirit!

    Congratulations to Edie, Eden, Tanika and Ysa who represented Coorabell, combined small schools and the Brunswick Valley in fine style at the Far North Coast Cross Country Carnival last Friday. Well done girls!

    Class 2/3 and 5/6 have been rehearsing the house down in preparation for the Far North Coast Dance Festival to be held this Wednesday at the Gold Coast Arts Centre. This festival is a wonderful opportunity for these Coorabell kids to experience the big lights in front of an audience of over 1,000. Good luck kids!

    It is with great sadness that I need to let you know that unfortunately Graham Jessup passed away last weekend. Graham was a tremendous teacher and artistic mentor to so many children over the years at Coorabell and many other schools in our region. He established a fantastic film making initiative called The Lucinda Project. Graham had an incredible ability to bring out every child’s creative flair which was showcased each year at a black tie Lucinda Movie Matinee where each of the school’s films were shown in front of a packed theatre audience. On behalf of the entire Coorabell School Community and the thousands of children he inspired in other schools I would like to give my sincere condolences to Graham’s family and friends.

    Huge thank you to Lisa (Freya’s mum) who has generously given up her time each Friday morning to work with Year 5 and then Year 6 in

    Apart from giving the students an insight into the media around them, Mr Jessup said he enjoyed seeing the schools come together.

    Vale Graham

    emotional wellbeing. In the first two weeks we have learnt about being our own best friend (where I always thought I was my own worst enemy). Last week the children and I learnt about validation which is a powerful way of ensuring that children and adults alike feel good (continued over page)

    about themselves and value their strengths. This is an easy but highly beneficial outlook and something that I wish to introduce school wide as it fits in with our overall culture of happiness and appreciation of individual differences. Thank you Lisa!

    Stukulele and I have been discussing a way of encouraging each Coorabell student to practice for a few minutes each day on their ukulele at home if they have one. Stu feels that many children don’t really play outside of his Friday lessons. We are looking to purchase another set of ukuleles for the school and therefore plan to sell our current ukuleles to any family who doesn’t have one at home for $10. To inspire parents to get involved in encouraging their children to practice or even join them themselves, Stukulele is putting on a special ukulele night for all parents and students on Wednesday June 21. Stay posted for time and place!

    Massive thank you to Mr Keylock’s 4/5 class who presented a terrific special Sorry Day item at last Friday’s assembly.

    Congratulations also to all of Class 5/6 who happened to be doing a fitness activity called The Beep Test as I walked across the tennis court. This was an exemplary display of Coorabell fitness and determination as I saw ten children reach the elite level 10 in the one class. I was highly impressed, as usually only one or two students at best reach Level 10 or beyond. Yet another great example of healthy body, healthy mind.

    Good luck to all the students who will be sitting the Digital Technology component of the ICAS (International Competitions and Assessments for Schools) today and the Science component tomorrow.

    Welcome to Bill who will be replacing Al as our General Assistant at Coorabell.

    Big thank you to Collette, Alex, Sybil and Azriel who have all put their hands up to cover library books. The massive pile of new books has almost disappeared. Thanks again!

    Many thanks

    Geoff Coghlan
