A big CONGRATULATIONS to BAIS student Meaghan Galindo who has made it through to the national finals of the Big Idea Competition! Reaching the finals of this competition is a brilliant achievement in itself and we have our fingers crossed for Meaghan with the Awards night at PwC coming up on 4 December! Good luck, Meaghan, and see you there!
Meaghan will be presenting a social enterprise project proposal that has evolved from an assignment with her teammates (Charlotte, Juliet, Olivia, Eliza and Hannah) within the 3rd year course International Professional Practice (now Global Professional Practice). This social enterprise opportunity is available to all BAIS students when they do this core course in 3rd year (now available to students in both semesters).
Background note: Former BAIS graduates Jessica Heron and Michael Marinelli were the first BAIS students to make it to the Big Idea finals a few years ago. They continued working on their project beyond graduation, and their project went from strength to strength thanks to their ongoing hard work and enthusiasm . It's exciting to know that these assignments can come to life and make a difference in the real world!
