Griffith was proud to host the Queen’s Baton Relay at our Nathan and Gold Coast campuses.
The Queen's Baton Relay was held prior to the beginning of the Commonwealth Games. The Relay travelled around the Commonwealth, inspiring community pride and exciting people about the event to come. The Queen's Baton itself carried a message from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II that calls the Commonwealth’s athletes to come together in peaceful and friendly competition.
Griffith University was proud to be hosting the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018), Queen’s Baton Relay at both our Nathan and Gold Coast campuses. To celebrate, we held special festivities for our students, staff and the local community to commemorate the occasion in style.
We were particularly excited about the visit of the Queen’s Baton to our Nathan campus as Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II visited the Brisbane Commonwealth Games Village in 1982 on the site which now houses our student accommodation. A fitting homecoming indeed!
