Sunshine Coast Secrets #3 – Markets

Do you fancy some weekend shopping, or just a walk in the sun at a Sunday market?  Check out all the great market options on the coast…..

Did you know that there are over 30 weekend markets held in the area around Noosa?  Everyone knows Eumundi markets (and you should check it out at least once while you’re here!), but there are lots of other great locations to pick up a bargain.

Some of the smaller markets can be difficult to get to via public transport, but many are held in the smaller villages around Noosa, and these can be really worth the effort.

During the month of December, Eumundi also has its famous ‘Twilight Market’ on Thursday evenings (from 5pm to 9pm). This can be a great activity after school, and we recommend a quiet pint in one of Eumundi’s great old pubs after your shopping.  You can read details here –

Cambridge Teachers Entertain Their Classes

On Monday 1st December the Cambridge First Certificate students will have their speaking exams here at GV Noosa.picture-002








So their teachers decided to show them how it  is done. Dionne and Rachel were the ‘examiners’ and Mike and Geraldine were students. However, the questions were very unusal…and the answers even more so. The teachers were hilarious and all the students enjoyed the show; the laughter was good for calming nerves and lifting the spirit.

The students all agree that their teachers are simply the best! Thank you team Cambridge; Rachel, Wendy, Alisa, Dionne, Gerladine, Mike and Louise.

Swiss Wrestling on the beach

Friday afternoon GV Noosa students participated in some Swiss culture!

Over 50 students took part in Friday’s Swiss Wrestling event. The activity was introduced by Fabienne, Stefan and Andy from the Cambridge classes and was very well organised by the Swiss students. The competition proved to be more challenging than first thought as the big guys dropped quickly from technique of others. There was a men’s and women’s competition with Markus Schwarzentrnber taking out the men’s title and Christine Furrer taking the women’s title. This was the first ever Swiss Wrestling event in Noosa and was very popular with all students. Thanks to all who took part!
