Students Bring Cheer To Children's Charity

TAFE Queensland Event Management students have used their newfound skills to help local children doing it tough over the holiday season by raising more than two thousand dollars for a local Gold Coast charity, Paradise Kids.

While COVID-19 put a stop to most face-to-face events throughout the year, the students were undeterred and pressed forward with their plans to organise and execute a successful fundraising event for the charity as part of their final assessment.

Twenty-four-year-old student, Chantelle Burkin spent six months working virtually with her team mates on their ‘Neverland’ concept and said it was all worthwhile when they were able to finally host the event.

Online International Exchange Fosters Closer Relationships For Students

In August 2020 a group of Japanese students from Hashimoto High School in the Kanagawa Prefecture were due to visit Australia for an international study exchange with Trinity Lutheran College through Study Gold Coast. As the year unfolded and it became increasingly clear that international travel wouldn’t be possible the program was totally rebuilt as a virtual experience.

By October the first virtual class was underway with an introduction to the program and an English language lesson for the Japanese students. Later sessions included virtual experiences with the Gold Coast Student Hub and the Home of the Arts (HOTA), as well as a tour through a homestay family’s home and a visit to the Gold Coast City Council Chambers with a presentation from the Mayor’s Office.

World First Climate Law Degree

Bond University is launching the world’s first climate law degree for undergraduate students who want to fix the system from the inside.

The university’s Faculty of Law took its cue to develop the new Bachelor of Laws (LLB) in Climate Law from the hundreds of thousands of students who protested to demand action on climate change during 2018 and 2019.

Executive Dean of the Faculty, Professor Nick James, said COVID-19 had temporarily taken the focus off climate change but “there are still many young people out there who are passionate about doing something to help heal the planet.”

“My sense is that concern among high school students and young people hasn't gone away and that they are energised and keen to learn more about the issue and how to do something about it,” Professor James said.
