Coolamon Central School From Coolamon Central School Snippets  Week 3(B) October 2014.

Last Wednesday, 15 October, selected Stage 3 students travelled to ‘Coombiana’, a working farm at Downside. The excursion was courtesy of Murrumbidgee Landcare who provided transport on the day. The focus of the excursion was the sustainability challenges behind the production of the food and fibre we all use every day. The excursion included a range of activities at a single site on the farm. The event directly addressed the sustainability action processes outlined in the NSW Department of Education Sustainability Curriculum Framework.

Toni McLeish, the School Project Coordinator of Murrumbidgee Landcare, was kind enough to  send us a letter congratulating our students on their attentive and positive behaviour. The  presenters reported how exciting it was to share information with students who really seemed to enjoy what they were doing and hearing.
