2020 Out of the Box Virtual Learning and Growing Student Expo Sponsors

Last year Our Lady of Good Counsel School successfully hosted the inaugural Learning and Growing Expo.  350 students from numerous Brisbane Catholic Education schools participated in a fantastic day of hands on learning. The event was hosted at the Gatton Show Grounds with students participating in a variety of activities all linked to food production – paddock to the plate, with the focus on the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics involved in agriculture. The feedback from participants was outstanding with many teachers commenting on what they had learnt.

This year, the school will again host the Expo however due to current circumstances, the event will look a little different. The Out of the Box, Virtual Learning and Growing Student Expo will be a mix of online and hands on learning with students participating from their own school.   To date, we have over 1200 students from numerous Brisbane Catholic Education schools who have expressed an interest in participating.   The response has been outstanding and the school is looking forward to providing an excellent learning experience for all.

Prior to the Expo each school will receive several boxes of resources for students to use to consolidate and demonstrate their learning and understanding of the concepts taught. Schools will then capture these learning opportunities and share them with other participating schools online through Microsoft Teams.
