What happened in December
Technicolour Kids Festival
MCC's hosted a Covid safe Technicolour Kids Festival on the 5th of December 2020. The event was a great success attracting many families to come attend a fun-filled day. Before the main gates opened up for the event, there was an hour dedicated to the families from the AEIOU foundation. We were also honored to have several special guests attend our festival, Ms. Leanne Linard MP, The Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner, Mr. Trevor Evans MP, Senator Paul Scarr, Ms. Julie McDougall (Director of Multicultural Affairs) and Mr. Timothy Mander MP to name a few. There were festival rides for the children and parents to enjoy for free such as the Ferris wheel, the Dodge 'Em cars, a Super slide, a Giant Swing and many more games. In addition to the rides and games, there was an amazing show performed by the ICC creative arts team and other performers from around Brisbane. Other activities included face painting, virtual reality, an art competition exhibition, photo booth and food trucks. A very big Thank you to Samantha Lac and her team for organizing a safe and spectacular event to end a challenging year!

Every year the Multicultural Community Centre donates gifts and Christmas hampers to the Aboriginal Community. On the 16th of December, 10 Christmas hampers were presented by MCC's Director Mrs. Jeannie Mok OAM to Estelle Sandow or Aunty Estelle (as known to us).
Settlement Engagement and Transition Support
Our Settlement Engagement Transition Support (SETS) team hosted a Youth Leadership Event for 16 youth from BNAQ (Bhutanese/Nepali Association of QLD). The program was to inspire these youth to be leaders and to help make a difference within their own communities and other communities in the North Brisbane region.
We had speakers from the QLD Police and also from REKON (a not-for-profit organization) making a positive impact on the youth in the Logan City Council region. One of the main guest speakers was Mr Tevita Koloi, the chaplain for the Tongan Rugby Team.
Our special guests enjoyed the program, games were set up and a light meal was served after the formalities. They were also presented with t-shirts sponsored by the SETS program.
