Our new “Celebrating Community” series of stories will showcase amazing performers and #community minded programs, driven by people from the City of Gold Coast’s #Division9 region. It’s a project I’m promoting together with my wife, Jude Kalman (an award-winning filmmaker), and the purpose of the stories is to inform locals and visitors alike how impressive our Hinterland is, and how important it is to celebrate our success. We’re super proud, and you should be too!
#Mudgeeraba Creek State School is doing its part in creating the innovators of the future with the schools outstanding list of achievements in the field of Science and STEM education.
The students are extremely excited with their most recent achievement in which they took out the “Primary School Excellence Award” for 2018 at the 65th Queensland Science competition hosted by the Science Teachers’ Association of Queensland at the University of Queensland late last year.
Every year the Griffith Science Education Alliance runs the Griffith University-Gold Coast Primary School Science competition which is the biggest of its kind in Australia. Over 2000 students of all ages compete in this annual event. The students of Mudgeeraba Creek have set a new record in 2018 by winning the title of “Best Primary School” for a record seventh year in a row. This has never been achieved in the history of the competition.
The school’s #science co-ordinator and STEM teacher, Megan Hayes, along with Principal Deirdre von Guilleaume, have been instrumental in delivering outstanding outcomes in education and particularly science education, and are absolutely deserving of recognition for their amazing work amongst our hinterland families who attend the school.
