The Student Enrichment Unit within the Office of Student Success hosted a very successful 2018 ACU Games.
The 2018 ACU Games saw over 120 students from six ACU campuses, predominantly first year students, gather in Ballarat to engage in an inclusive program comprising team sports and strategic challenges. The annual event involved three days of activities designed to promote well-being, assist students in developing problem-solving skills and provide an opportunity to make new friends.
Students undertook a range of sporting activities, participated in a drumming workshop, Indigenous hip-hop dance workshops, theatre sports and enjoyed a range of social activities. In feedback collected, students commented that ACU Games helped them develop a range of skills, including: teamwork, communication, leadership, and their social confidence.
At the black tie dinner, students had the opportunity to hear an inspiring keynote presentation from David Tubb, ACU alumni and General Manager – Operations at OrangeSky Australia. David was a founding board member of Orange Sky Laundry.
Congratulations to the MacKillop Campus on winning the Games and to the Aquinas Campus on being awarded the Spirit of the Games award.
