Sunset Party Boat!

As the sun went down the music went up!

Rafael’s day off work, so what better to do than to have a sunset boat party with 45 other excited students! The boat departed Catalina Jetty on the Noosa River at 4pm and returned 3 hours later! We stopped for swim, had a few drinks, bbq and of course the Conga line & Macarena!

Evening IELTS options in Brisbane

If you’re moving to Brisbane when you finish your study at GV Noosa, you may want to consider Evening IELTS.

Offered for 10 or 20 hours per week at GV Brisbane, the Evening IELTS program starts each day at 5pm.  This is ideal for students who want to work during the day, but still want to keep going with their English study. Many students choose to take a couple of weeks of this course immediately prior to attempting the IELTS exam, and the 10 hours per week program is a less intensive way to keep progressing in English.

The course is offered at two levels; Foundation IELTS has an entry level of IELTS 4.5, while the new IELTS Target 7 course has an entry level of 6.

If you have any questions, ask Becky or Nina.  Alternatively, you can email Peter at GV Brisbane at .

Urgent – Students wanted for evening work!
