CQUniversity was selected for involvement as a range of staff and students were impacted by the floods.

In addition, the University provided a lot of support to the local community during the disaster including provision of facilities for the Bundaberg NewsMail newsroom and laboratories for council water testing. Education students also entertained children from evacuation centres.

Between 150-200 staff and students attended the event, enjoying a barbecue, games and competitions for prizes.

Attracting this event to campus was an initiative of the newly formed Campus Life Committee which worked with the Council to promote and set up the event.
