We were delighted to hold our College Creative Endeavours Showcase on the last Thursday of this term. This evening was a spectacular twilight event enabling all to come and enjoy the dazzling talent of our students – Overall Qld Poetry SlammED winner and other finalists, Senior QDU Debaters, STEM Making A Difference prototypes and presentations by our budding innovators, first class drama performances, thought provoking digital technologies, 2021 DATTA Design Technology competition First Place Award Recipient, National Young Audience Award jurists for the European Film Academy, and winners of the Brisbane Portrait Prize and Creative Generation Art Competition, plus the IEU Excellence in Art and Design Award.
A particularly special feature of this evening was the display of the portraiture work of Year 10 student, Lily Hobbs. Lily was the national winner of the AUSTRALIAN YOUNG ARCHIBALD PRIZE WINNER FOR 2020. With last year being the beginning of the pandemic, we did not have an opportunity to share this fabulous and high acclaimed artwork with the broader community, so we were extremely thrilled to be able to do so.
I thank the terrific number of incoming families joining us next year and beyond; existing families; and members of our local neighbourhood who joined us for an enchanting evening. We truly are an interconnected, joy-filled community that we espouse.
