Learning about other countries and cultures
Launched at the International Study Conference each year, the QCWA nominates a Country of Study as the focus for their International Program’s awareness and fundraising activities. This immersive weekend introduces members to many facets of the Country’s history, crafts, food, music, sports, and other cultural activities.
In 2022, the Country of Study is Australia.
Branch and Division International Officers introduce the Country of Study to their members, collaborating to expand their collective knowledge through informative activities and fundraising events.
Any funds raised at these events are donated to support The Associated Country Women of the World (ACWW).
Branch members can take part in a range of competitions with their peers such as creating a scrap book, project book or crafts. Members please log into the Member Only section to download the documents.
International study for Children
Each year the QCWA State International Officer runs competitions for children from Prep to Year 6, in line with the QCWA's nominated County of Study. In 2022, the Country of Study is Australiaia.
The QCWA School Children's International Competition runs in conjunction with the QCWA Branch Members own study program. So, while Members are learning, children can also participate in fun and educational activities focused on a specific country.
This year QCWA Members will be exploring all aspects of life and living in Australia, including history and religion, people and fashion, language, geography and industry, flora and fauna, foods and cooking, crafts and traditions, and many other aspects of our Australian culture.
All Queensland Primary School and Special Education students are encouraged to participate in the QCWA's Children’s International Competition. The QCWA also receives valuable sponsorship from the Commonwealth Bank of Australia towards prizes for the State Winners of this competition.
The Children’s Competition Schedule includes age appropriate sections for Primary School and Special Education classes.
