MBC student receives Olympic accolade
5 June 2017
Year 12 student Miela Goodchild’s sporting career is reaching new heights following her recent Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) appointment to a prestigious international youth forum.
In August, Meila will travel to Ülenurme, Estonia to take part in the 11th International Pierre de Coubertin Youth Forum, co-ordinated by the AOC’s Olympic Education Program.
Miela is one of two Queensland recipients and will join an eight strong student contingent from Australia aged between 16 and 18 years.
As a member of the U17 Australian Sapphires, Miela’s team won a gold medal at FIBA World Championships in Spain in 2006 and she is currently a member of the U19 Australian Gem Squad.
Throughout the six-day forum, Miela will take part in a program of organising sports events, leading discussion groups and coordinated group activities as well as participating for the Coubertin Award.
Moreton Bay College Director of Sport Ms Susan Pavish congratulated Miela on her recent selection and praised her efforts over the years.
“Miela is a dedicated athlete who leads by example,” Ms Pavish said.
“She demonstrates excellent sportsmanship qualities both on and off the court and has assisted with coaching younger teams in the past.
Ms Pavish said Miela joined MBC’s Performance Program in 2014 and ever since her abilities have grown from strength to strength.
“We’re extremely proud to have nurtured and supported Miela throughout her sporting journey,” she said.
The forum will be represented by 27 countries and followed by a homestay visit in Gausdal, Norway.

Former student dazzles international stage
Former Moreton Bay College (MBC) student Sarah Douch has dazzled the international stage and captured the attention of world famous troupe Cirque du Soleil.
Sarah, who graduated in 2006, received a special invitation to audition for a dance role in a resident Cirque du Soleil production based in Las Vegas and is travelling to the United States this week. Since leaving MBC Sarah embarked on a successful career and is an internationally recognised singer and dancer.
She has performed around the world with credits including principal dancer with Bor Productions on MSC Cruises through the Mediterranean and South Africa, lead singer/dancer in a variety of shows and productions at Universal Studios in both Singapore and Japan as well as dance positions at The Sands Casino in Macau, China.
She has also worked in both the film and television industries while overseas.
Most recently, Sarah completed a contract at Universal Studios in Japan and returned to Australia for a short time to mentor and choreograph MBC’s Senior Dance Troupe.
MBC Head of Arts Kelly Redhead-Adelt said the College was thrilled to have the talented performer back at MBC working with the senior dance students.
“We were excited to invite Sarah back to MBC to work as a guest choreographer with our Senior Dance Troupe to prepare their jazz routine for the upcoming Brisbane and Gold Coast Eisteddfods,” Ms Redhead-Adelt said.
“Working with the girls provided Sarah with the opportunity to share her industry knowledge and teach students the discipline and dedication required to make it in such a highly competitive industry.”
“We are very proud to call Sarah a Moreton Bay College Old Girl and it’s been an honour to watch her career flourish over the years.
“Like all our past students we would like to wish Sarah all the best with the Cirque Du Soleil audition and her career in the future.”
Since returning to Australia Sarah has also successfully auditioned for the roles of Catwoman and Harley Quinn at Movieworld on the Gold Coast.
