The Multicultural Queensland Awards recognise the valuable contributions of Queenslanders who support and promote an inclusive, harmonious and united Queensland community.
This year, a very high calibre of submissions was received. All nominees were inspirational and we are pleased to announce that St Peters Lutheran College was recognised as finalists in the Education, training and skills category.
This category recognises the outstanding achievements of government and non-government early childhood education and care, schools, universities, TAFEs or registered training organisations in delivering inclusive programs that support participation and opportunity for people from diverse backgrounds.
Congratulations to 2019 finalists, St Peters Lutheran College.
The Multicultural committee of St Peters Lutheran College, Indooroopilly is a student-run volunteer organisation which aims to promote multiculturalism within the school and broader community. Every year, around 50 students volunteer their time and energy into organising events to raise awareness about the benefits of a multicultural Queensland. They undertake various projects during the school calendar such as Chinese Lunar New Year, Bastille Day, Easter around the world, Diwali and Harmony Day and dedicate a whole week to promote the school’s diversity. The students’ dedication and passion has helped in creating a more vibrant, accepting and culturally aware staff and student body.
The winner of each category will be announced at a gala awards dinner held in Brisbane on 30 August 2019.
