Secondly, GCAP Presents Li Cunxin is happening this Wednesday. We’ve already given away more than 400 tickets!!! If you haven’t got yours yet, head to the Student Guild office to grab your free ticket. Already have a ticket, but want to bring a friend? Feel free to come by and grab another ticket or two. Remember, seating is not guaranteed so be sure to be there early. Doors open at 6:30p, event starts at 7p and there will be a cash bar and some nibbles following the event for your enjoyment.

Thirdly, we know this time of year can be stressful. Did you know meditation can be a great stress reliever? We’ve organised a small event to head to a Buddhist Temple this Sunday to learn about meditation and Buddhism. For more details contact Eric at events@gcap.org.au.
