Governor of Queensland Visit


​On Friday, 17 August Western Cape College were honoured to host His Excellency the Honourable Paul de Jersey AC, Governor of Queensland as part of His Excellency’s Regional Government House program.

His Excellency and Mrs de Jersey began their visit to our College with a tour of our Special Education Unit Facility and viewed the local history display centred around the NAIDOC theme ‘Because of Her, We Can!’ in our Resource Centre. 

As part of our NAIDOC Opening Ceremony, His Excellency was invited to speak at the assembly where he thanked: Natasha for her heart-felt words about ‘Because of Her, We can!’, Jacqueline Madua for the Welcome to Country and her ‘Because of Her, We Can’ dedication and the P-4 Primary Choir for their rendition of ‘We are one’ which was so good it warranted a second round of applause.

The visit concluded with His Excellency departing the College after a photo opportunity with our School Captains and the P-4 Primary Choir.
