Days at USQ
THE USQ Indigenous Connections Day was attended by Texas students Mariki and Jakob who were excited for the opportunity.
The two students were able to interact with USQ current students and representatives from Indigenous community organisations.
They enjoyed a tour of the USQ facilities and participated in interactive cultural and study area activities.
Students heard stories from current students and indigenous elders.
Year 10 students have been finding out first-hand what is available beyond Year 10 by attending a two and a half day careers camp experience at USQ.
Students were able to explore career and education pathways, visit a variety of local Toowoomba businesses and enjoy career-focused activities.
Students got to enjoy the experience while staying on campus at USQ’s residential college.
USQ Brainways – Annabelle, India, Sally, Alex and Bailey attended The Quest challenge in Toowoomba in Week 2. The two days saw the students learn and compete in a challenge based on philosophy, GPS and relativity.
STUDENTS from P-9 participated in a film and arts festival with Jed.
The students were involved in a workshop that had them performing in front of the camera and learning all about how to operate the equipment behind the scenes.
Everyone had great fun and Jed did some crazy special effects to the finished clips.
The screening of the clips on Friday afternoon was well received by everyone.
This exciting event was assisted by the
Goondiwindi Regional Council with RADF funding.
Prep to Year 9 students went to watch a fantastic Queensland Music Festival, a Youth Touring performance called Reef UP!.
This wonderful show combined the latest scientific research with the magic of theatre to share the story of what is happening to our coral reefs, and what we can do to help.
