Students from all three campuses have certainly been very active across a range of projects that demonstrate their commitment to being globally active citizens.
Several of our students participated in the United Nations Youth Association (UNYA) State Conference, held from February 23 -25. Delegations from all three campuses attended the conference – which took the form of a three-day residential seminar. Students participated in a range of sessions that covered leadership, diplomacy, advocacy and international affairs.
The 2018 theme was power, diplomacy and influence. In an evolving world, politics and diplomacy interact with national identity, cultural cohesion, conflict, and personal beliefs. The culminating session included students representing their allocated country as a member state of the United Nations in the Model UN Debate. Click here to read more
Additionally, students and staff from the Queensland Academy for Science Mathematics and Technology enthusiastically embraced their annual Harmony Day celebrations on April 20. Harmony Day celebrates Australia’s cultural diversity, promoting inclusiveness, respect and a sense of belonging. Participants wore traditional dress representing their ancestry and many cooked dishes which allowed others to taste the variety of flavours that can be found around the world. This year, Harmony Day was enhanced by several performances including the traditional Lion Dance, Thai Piano, Aussie boys Choir and The Sheilas. The performances were followed by a multicultural feast where everybody enjoyed tasting the flavours of countries all around the world. Click here to read more
