Queensland Academies Creative Industries (QACI) would like to congratulate Year 10 student Micol Carmignani who last week competed in the Queensland Ice Skating Championships in two events – The team event Synchronized Junior and the Ice Dance Senior with her ice dance partner Mitchell Frencham.
In her team event the Synchronized Junior team must be congratulated on receiving state championship status. This qualifies the team to participate in the National Championships in December where they will compete to qualify for the Junior World Championships in 2018.
In her Ice Dance Senior event Micol and her dance partner achieved technical scores that will allow them to compete internationally in Andorra (Spain) in November. Micol will also travel to Italy and Germany in January where she will compete in the Senior International events.
In between her international competition, Micol will participate in the National Championships in Australia in December for both event categories.
If Micol and her dance partner achieve the required scores to qualify this will then take them to the Four Continents Figure Skating Championships.
Micol’s dedication to her sport and her ability to manage her studies clearly aligns with the IB Learner Profile attribute – balanced; understanding the importance of balancing different aspects of our lives — intellectually, physically, and emotionally to achieve well-being for ourselves and others.
Once again, QACI would like to congratulate Micol and her team / partner and we wish them all the best with their future competition.
