Celebrating our service leadership at the GCCG 2018

Volunteering at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games will be an incredible once in a lifetime experience for all of those who are involved. It will be the Gold Coast’s chance to showcase to the world how diverse, friendly and skilled our community is. Volunteers needed to be 16 years at the time of application. 15 000 volunteers are currently preparing to meet and greet our guests, with the first athletes arriving in the Games Village today. We are proud that from our QAHS staff and students we have 22 volunteers, and the list is still growing.

At QAHS, we value service to our community through the CAS program. Students participate in a range of community service opportunities. Many of our staff and students have pledged their service to the GCCG 2018 as dedicated volunteers. The roles are varied across many venues throughout the Gold Coast. Below are the staff and students who have accepted positions as volunteers. We celebrate their achievement and look forward to sharing their stories with you throughout the course of their volunteering experience. These students (and staff) are demonstrating the attributes of an IB learner through meaningful engagement with our global community.
