Embracing the call for local students to assist the Queensland Dept. of
Transport with the Launch of the Digital Licence App. A competition was
announced asking Fraser coast students to represent our region in a campaign to
promote the new App and to search for student Ambassadors to assist in the
launch across our community. How fortunate is the Fraser coast to have been
selected for the first trial and launch of the Digital Licence.
Eager to use their
skills in a real world project a number of our Digital design and technology
students completed videos and digital posters and submitted entries for this
The launch and
announcement of the 6 selected Ambassadors from the Fraser Coast, was booked to
happen at the Maryborough Town Hall but due to current restrictions the launch
came to St Mary's College instead. Attending was Chris Goh representing the
Queensland Transport Department and Fraser Coast Cr Paul Truscott to present
our 2 winners with a trophy and gift card. Congratulations again to Nicholas
Corsetti and Hayden McIntyre who each won $500 gift card and have been selected
to be representatives of this progressive program. The competition was open to
all year 10-12 students in the Fraser Coast area where entrants were asked to
submit a Digital Flyer or Video showcasing the region and the Digital Licence
The special guests
Co-announced that St Mary's College was also the Major winner of the
Competition, the prize our College received is a $5000 grant to enhance our
Digital Technology program even further.
Congratulations to all
entrants for the high level of quality submissions, our College's progressive
and dynamic technology programs were well suited to such a task.
The Queensland Digital
Licence App is being trialled on the Fraser Coast in early 2020 (The current
Covid-19 Pandemic has meant the trial is on hold - we are all looking forward
to trialling a digital licence soon! ) .
This App will allow
Queenslanders to securely and easily store their Licence's digitally.
