“Education listens, or it does not educate. If it does not listen, it does not educate. Education creates culture, or it does not educate. Education teaches us to celebrate, or it does not educate".
“Someone can ask me: ‘But, isn't education knowing things?’ No. That's what knowledge is. But to educate is to listen, to create culture, to celebrate".
Pope Francis 5 June 2020.
What percentage of Australians live within 50 Kilometres of the coast? The answer: 84%!
Beaches are vitally important to all Australians but particularly to the people of Queensland; social, economically and environmentally.
It is estimated that the beaches of the Gold Coast contributes $4.7 Billion dollars to the Queensland economy so it is vital that they are healthy. Year 10 Geography students visited the Gold Coast Beach of Palm Beach on Friday 16th October to investigate the many strategies put in place by the Gold Coast City Council, supported by Griffith University to save this beach which is prone to sever erosion from being washed away. The girls loved being guided by Dr Fabiana Moreria and Research Fellow, Maggie Muurmans from Griffith University in collecting data to assess the health of the Palm Beach.
With a beautiful 27 degrees and a lovely blue sky, the girls thoroughly enjoyed their day and look forward to writing up their findings and suggesting further coastal management strategies is their Report. The field work is based on providing real solutions to real world problems.
Year 11 Visual Arts in Practice (VAP) students commenced their ‘Future Visions’ unit with a virtual presentation by Sunshine Coast Urban artist, Sarah Sculley, who provided a contemporary insight into the design process, industry standards, technology tools, stencil development (using Photoshop) and WH&S requirements. Sculley discussed the impacts of Covid: an increase in the residential client market, a decrease in government funding and initiative, and difficulties sourcing project materials. Sculley’s folio of works were a source of inspiration, as students begin to generate ideas/plans for a spray-painted design.
