Introducing our 2024 Prefects Elect

Some exciting news for the whole College that you may have seen on our socials, but we’re happy to shout this news from the rooftops!  Please be introduced to our 2024 Prefects Elect.  This group of fine students have been offered the important role of leading our College throughout 2024.
We’ve already hosted our first Prefect meeting to prepare our young leaders for the important work they’ll be doing, which starts as early as next term when our 2023 leaders will be completing their posts.  We couldn’t be prouder of this group of young people and can’t wait to officially appoint them in early 2024 at our annual Leadership Induction Ceremony.
Congratulations to Samuel Bourke, Will Bryant, Georgina Buchan, Ben Carey, George Handley, Charlie-Rose Matai, Sarah Mauch, Maggie Myer, Darcy Noller, Jorgi Owers, Faith Quach, Adam Stephenson, Lachlan Tweddell, Isabelle Twidale and Sophie Weier.

Hospitality Camel Farm Experience

Mrs Melissa Bellingham | VET Coordinator

Last week the Year 10 Hospitality class headed off over the “Gap” to Summer Land Camel Farm for an experience like no other.

Once we arrived at the Camel Farm, we embarked on a tour through Australia’s largest camel farm and were given an inside look at its daily operation, which included the camel milk, dairy, processing, and production facilities.  We were also lucky enough to see quite a number of new baby camels in the nursery area of the farm.

During the 90-minute tour, our students learned about camels and Australia’s camel history, had an in-depth tour of the dairy, breeding and camel milk production areas and learned about the Hospitality, Tourism and Marketing side of the operations.  They were also treated to a tasting of their award-winning Camel Milk, Persian Feta and Camel Meat Salami at the Homestead Café.

After lunch and a spot of camel farm souvenir shopping, we finished off the day with some camel feeding – I’m not sure who enjoyed this more the camels or the students.

It was a wonderful experience and day out in the picturesque Scenic Rim, and going by the positive feedback from the students on the bus on the way back to school; one I am sure we will do again.
