LHC students excel at G20-inspired challenge - 17 November 2014

On 8-9 November, thirty LHC Year 10 Business Education students were invited to participate in the G20-inspired Chrysalis Global Youth Challenge

International Education Services (IES), in association with The University of Queensland’s (UQ) School of Business, Study Brisbane and Brisbane Marketing, hosted the Grand Final on Sunday at Brisbane City Hall, where Lord Mayor Graham Quirk commenced proceedings.

This once-in-a-life-time opportunity allowed our students to partner with an international student from 20 different countries and compete against other Brisbane schools, in order to successfully operate their own virtual business within the PierSim Business Island Simulation.

Students were presented with numerous current economic and business challenges, which they had to solve in order for their virtual business to survive within the virtual economy. The virtual businesses replicated real-world business (e.g. Domino’s Virtual, Di Bella Coffee, Yellow Cabs) and it was great to see such organisations engaging with our leaders of tomorrow. The students also relied on their peers, who acted as the Government Officials of the nations, to propose viable policies, so the audience could vote for the most effective solutions.

Lourdes Hill College is proud to announce our success at this prestigious event.  Courtney Lucas and her New Zealand international student partner came second, with support from their Government officials (Amelia Burke, Makaela Coster, and Ashleigh Keefe). 

The College is also ecstatic to announce that Alannah Bauer and her Cambodian international student won the Global Youth Challenge, with the support from their Government official, Georgia Galovic.

Alannah and Courtney each receive a $1,500 scholarship to attend next year’s Chrysalis Youth Leaders’ program.

Business is definitely booming at LHC!
