St John’s Conrad Students Congratulated by The Hon Leeanne Enoch MP
On Thursday 14 April St John’s had the enormous honour of welcoming The Hon Leeanne Enoch, Minister for Innovation, Science and the Digital Economy and Minister for Small Business to the College. The Minister’s visit was to wish 20 of our students who have qualified for the Semi-Finals of the 2016 The Conrad Spirit of Innovation Challenge well, for their trip to the USA for the completion finals.
The Minister also announced that St John’s will be hosting an Advance Queensland Young Starters’ Bootcamp for the students when they return to help them develop entrepreneurial skills to translate their ideas into reality. The students were also invited to join the promotional display at this year’s Ekka to share their experiences with other young Queensland innovators.
During the assembly yesterday the Minister presented each student with an Ambassadors Pack in preparation for their departure. All students and staff greatly appreciate the support and well wishes which they received from the Minister.
