International Gala and Awards Night

James Cook University is holding the inaugural JCU Allianz Care Australia International Gala and Awards Night celebrating and recognising the achievements and contributions of our international students.

Join us for a night of glitz, glamour and spirited fun as we recognize and present awards to five notable JCU International Students and one JCU International Student Group. A three-course meal, three-hour drinks package, photo booth, DJ and Live Entertainment are all included in the one low JCU subsidised price of $50 per person.

Cultural performances will be delivered by JCU Student Groups as well as Townsville based groups “Townsville Drum Collective” and “Movimiento”. Local Latin DJ, DjDread Juan, will bring the beats of Latin America, the Pacific, Africa and the World onto the stage for an unforgettable night.

Dress in your finest formal or traditional cultural attire for a chance to win the best dressed male and best dressed female award. There will also be numerous lucky door prizes drawn throughout the evening.

Cairns students are invited to participate in this exciting event. JCU will cover your transport costs (via Greyhound Bus) to and from Townsville. Discounted accommodation can also be arranged if required. Contact international Support staff for more information.

Doors open at 6pm with the three-hour drinks package commencing at 6:30pm.
