Barefoot in the Park
On Friday, 13 June, all students in Years 1, 2 and 3 participated in our annual Barefoot in the Park celebration, as part of Under 8’s Week.
It was a fun morning where the children, their teachers and parents came together to highlight the importance of children in our community and the contributions that they make. The fabulous Foundations staff organised so many amazing activity stations for the children to enjoy. These included face painting, kite making, bubble painting, kitty album making, book magnets, icing biscuits, hairdressing, fairy bread, fruit rockets, dress ups and many, many more! The sun shone, despite the threat of rain, and happy faces filled the Eastern playground!Read more »

Congratulations Gold Coast Ambassador, Rouen!
Ten International Student Ambassadors have been chosen to promote the City of the Gold Coast to the world, and Rouen Thouen is one of these!
Rouen completed a rigorous application process involving a written paper and a panel interview to be considered for this prestigious position. Not only is Rouen the only Ambassador from Cambodia, he is actually the only school age student in this group of ten! Rouen will have the opportunity to provide regular updates about his life and experiences here as a student on the Gold Coast. Some of these include a visit to Dreamworld, Gold Coast Suns matches, Lantern Ghost tours, Seaworld, Thunderbird Park, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, Sunset Safaris, surfing lessons, whale watching, Movieworld, and a tour of Skypoint Observation deck! Sounds like some tough gigs there, Rouen! The ambassadors are expected to share their experiences via a number of social media channels. The ambassador program will cover workshops aimed at enhancing social media skills. The ambassadors also undertake a number of mentor sessions. Rouen was appointed to this position by Mayor Tom Tate at a civic reception at the Gold Coast City Council Chambers. This initiative supported by Study Gold Coast is an amazing opportunity for Rouen and we wish him the very best with his ambassador responsibilities. We look forward to following Rouen's adventures as he shares with the world why he loves being an international student on the Gold Coast!Read more »
