#CairnsCares

What is #CairnsCares? This is not just another hashtag. It’s a Study Cairns initiative to show the international students in Cairns that we care and offer practical solutions for their problems caused by COVID-19. Through Cairns Student Hub we will be running a range of programs to improve the situation of international students.

HubFood

HubFood

Our initiative to feed international students nutritious food, consisting of two approaches, a foodbank and cooked meals through Eat Real / Feed me.

To donate money to Eat Real to provide cooked meals to International students, cooked by fellow international volunteer student chefs, transfer money into the account below, with as reference “student meals”:

Account name:
Eat Real ‘Feed Me’
BSB: 124001
Acc: 22289088

We are also seeking donations from the public and wholesalers to contribute non-perishables for the foodhamper side of our foodbank project. This food will be collected daily at the Hub between 1pm and 3pm and distributed 3-4pm daily.

Perishables can been donated also, but this will need to go through Eat Real Cairns in Aeroglen. Contact us or 0459256420 or studenthub@studycairns.com.au for details so we can coordinate this.

International student chefs will be volunteering their time to cook meals from the donated items also, particularly the perishables.

HubBuddies

HubBuddies

A buddy system so that international students can keep on practicing their English by talking to pre-approved local families who are native English speakers. International students have voiced their concerns about being stuck at home, not working with native speakers, not hanging out with students from other countries and speaking English. This is not “adopt-a-student”, this is really just a way for students to connect with locals and practice their English only.

If you’re an international student and would like to join HubBuddies, please follow this link

HubTV

HubTV

Presented by international students for international students. This will be a livestreamed TV show with international students from around Cairns contributing, from entertainers, to cooks, to story submissions, interviews etc. The objective is to provide entertainment at dinner time (a time that can be very lonely for students). There will be some practical information in the show as well, with FAQs, budgeting tips etc. This is very much about moral support, and encouraging students to make submissions and give creatives a platform.

Do you want to volunteer?

The Student Hub welcomes students who want to help by volunteering their time and skills to assist other students. We’re also developing an exciting Internship Program and are happy to assist with finding an internship or volunteer position for you.
