NAIDOC Week Celebrations
As our NAIDOC Week Celebrations continue, our Years 7 and 8 students were visited by Wanyara, a team providing interactive First Nations cultural experiences to help others understand and embrace an Aboriginal perspective. Students loved the opportunity to learn some First Nations games, including a game from Stradbroke Island and Aurukun as well. We also had the chance to learn about traditional Aboriginal artwork and how First Nations people tell their stories through art, symbology and creativity. Students created their own stories and shared them with the cohort, as we continue our stride towards bridging the gap and learning more about our First Nations cultures.
2022 Future Millionaires Expo
Our Year 9 students pitched their business proposals to the students, faculty and parents in attendance at the 2022 Future Millionaires Expo. This business proposal was part of their Semester-long assignment. With business ideas ranging from food delivery and shoe cleaning to robotic plant watering and AI shopping services, the Expo featured a wide range of dynamic and exciting ideas from our clever students. These opportunities give students the chance to not only build entrepreneurial skills but real world ones too, including public speaking, pitching and conflict resolution. Each attendee was given $50,000 in play money to invest in the best idea. The ideas that had the most funds at the end of the evening were crowned as our Future Millionaires. A big thank you to all the attendees, the innovative students, guest speakers and our Student MC’s on the evening!
