On Thursday the 5th September we had the privilege and honour to welcome The Right, The Honourable Councillor Adrian Schrinner Lord Mayor of Brisbane and Councillor Krista Adams for an exclusive private tour of our STEM building.

Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner addressed and thanked the audience for the invitation and briefly discussed the importance of education particularly for an independent school since he attended Citipointe Christian College an independent school.

He reflected about the similarities between AIIC and his former school stating the school began with demountables and a small number of students. However, today its rapid growth has been mainly due to the hardworking teachers, staff, parent’s involvement and the support from the wider community.

Prior to politics, Cr Krista Adams was a secondary teacher and is all too familiar with the importance of education and how education can shape our students to adapt and be ready for the challenges of tomorrow.

To mark the special occasion Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner and Cr Krista Adams were presented with a plaque from our student leaders.
