Northside excels at the Creative Generation Awards

Photo - CopyOn Saturday evening, four Northside students received awards for their excellence in art at the Creative Generation Awards, Metropolitan Region.

This year 522 submissions were received from 186 schools State-wide, where every school could submit up to four entries.  Our Metropolitan exhibition displayed the creative talent of 158 senior Visual Art students from 54 local schools.

The Creative Generation awards offer the only collective exhibition of senior student art work from each region of Queensland. It is an initiative that has led to widespread recognition of the excellent work senior Visual Art students are producing as well as enabling students and teachers throughout the state to share and appreciate the diversity of art work being produced in Queensland secondary schools.

The award system is two-tiered, meaning that high achieving students might receive a ‘Highly Commended’ or a ‘Excellence’ award. For those who do receive an ‘Excellence’ award, their artwork becomes part of a travelling exhibition around Queensland and returns to an exhibition at the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA), in the following year. The student is also invited to attend a special workshop in the September school holidays.

This year, Northside received an award for each of the four entries we submitted, a very rare occasion for any participating school and a well-deserved achievement for the four students who participated in the Awards.

We wish to congratulate the following students:

  • Nathan McClenaghan – Highly Commended Award
  • Nel Baker – Highly Commended Award
  • Chiara Stegert – Excellence Award
  • Kathleen O’Hagan – Excellence Award

Pierre de Coubertain Award Recipient

The Pierre de Coubertain Award is named after the founder of the Modern Olympic Movement. The award recognises students who demonstrate initiative, teamwork, sportsmanship and fair play through participation in a variety of sports, qualities which we are very familiar with, and are consistent with the fundamental aims of the Olympic movement.

The 2015 Northside Christian College recipient was Josh Morrison in Year 12.  Josh received the award at a ceremony on Sunday 21st June, which also included a leadership workshop and guest speakers from various Olympic sports.

Congratulations to Josh and well done for putting in the hard work and commitment to contributing to the sports program at Northside, in addition to his outstanding work as Sports Captain this year.

Harry Sweeny to compete at the Cycling World Championships

Congratulations to Year 12 student, Harry Sweeny, who has been selected to represent Australia in the Under 19 category at the 2015 UCI Road World Championships in Richmond, USA from September 19-27, 2015.

This is made all the more special as Harry is the youngest team member at 17 years of age.

To represent our country is an honour that Harry has been training towards over a long period of time.

We will all be cheering Harry on in September, as he pulls on the Green and Gold! Congratulations Harry.
