Bottlebrushes, Beach and Beer

Hidden away, down a native bush track of bottle brushes and black boys, a secret beach paradise reveals itself just over the sand dunes.  It’s the first stop on Bob’s Coolum Beach bus tour and next up is a visit to a recognised Marine Turtle breeding ground near Point Arkwright.

Noosa GV students hoorayed at the carton of xxxx beer they picked up between the two tour stops. Cooling off with a can to their lips,  overlooking the bays of marine life, surf and beach, the students soaked up the sun and fresh air.  There’s no other way, than the Aussie way!


Sabrina’s Good Choice

French student, Sabrina Sadouni tells us how she feels about her choice to study in Noosa Australia.

“Thanks to my agency in Paris, I’ve found a good school in a beautiful small town.  At the beginning, I explained to my agent that I wanted a small town near the beach in Queensland and she suggested Noosa.  I agreed and I’ve had no regrets about this choice.

 My agency was very attentive to my wishes.  Moreover, my teachers are very professional and have good methods to teach in a friendly atmosphere.  I’ve chosen the IELTS course for my studies and the teachers really prepare us to take it.  These 3 months have been very interesting and I’ve improved my English.”

Main Beach Volleyball

Well, the Summer is here and there is no better way to spend your Wednesday afternoon’s than down at the beautiful Main Beach of Noosa, hangin’ out with your friends, takin’ a dip, catchin’ some waves, bakin’ in the sun and getting physical with a game of beach volleyball!

Every Wednesday, Julie from GV Noosa will be setting up the volley net in front of the Noosa Main Beach Surf Life Saving Club.  Julie will walk down from Global Village after school at 2pm.  You can walk down with Julie or simply meet her at the beach.

If you see Julie around the college, please introduce yourself and let her know if you are interested in playing volleyball each week.

Bring your swimmers, towel, hat, sunscreen and water to school every Wednesday.  It’s beach day!!!

Take me to the top!

The beauty of Noosa is no secret but if you take a little step further away from the summer scene of beach and sun, you step into a wilderness world of greater heights.

If you missed out on the mystery Noosa bus tour today, don’t worry because we like to take a trip anytime!!  Be sure to read the activity board to sign on for next time.

There was something fishy going on in Noosa…

Fishing + Food + Football + Fun = Friday

GV Noosa students experienced a traditional Aussie Friday afternoon by the Noosa River today for their activity. They were treated to some burgers and taught the basics of how to catch some fish for dinner! The students were very patient as they cast their rod and waited… and waited for the fish to bite. Some girls tried their luck at catching crabs instead by the rocks but soon realised that the birds in Noosa are also fishing for food and stole all their bait!

Some students enjoyed a friendly game of football while others happily relaxed by the water and soaked in the beautiful scenery. It was a magical afternoon for all and a perfect start to the weekend!

Homestay Christmas Party

Last night homestay families and Global Village Noosa homestay staff enjoyed a refreshing drink and some nibbles to celebrate another year of successfully providing students with families and homes while they study.

Congratulations to all homestay families and Global Village staff, for all your hard work and dedication…Merry Christmas.

Cambridge FCE Class Surprise Their Teacher

Our crazy FCE 3 class gave their teacher David a big birthday surprise today when they weren’t sitting in class at 9 am sharp as usual!

The usually perfect class wanted to play a birthday trick on their David so with the help of Becky (the Director of Studies), they arranged to all arrive at school 20 minutes late. For 20 minutes, Becky had David in her office to tell him that his class thought he was a very bad teacher and they were not coming any more. Poor David didn’t know what to think, until they all arrived with cake and balloons to wish ‘the best teacher they have ever had’ a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY. If you want to know how old David is…..ask him.

What’s a Sweep?

On Tuesday it was the first time for most of the GV students to participate in a sweep.  Whats a sweep?  Read below to find out more.

In Australia on the first Tuesday in November every year, a major horse race event known as ‘Melbourne Cup’ takes place in, you guessed it, Melbourne Victoria.

This year 24 horses competed in the race at Flemington.  Most Australians celebrate this day by wearing fancy hats, drinking champagne and most importantly by putting on a few bets.

A fun workplace activity is to organise a sweep.  A Melbourne Cup sweep is when you put all of the horse names singularly into a hat and each person involved in the sweep pays an agreed amount in exchange to pull out a horses name.  It’s a bit like a lucky dip.  All of the money then becomes a prize pool.  Who ever picked the winning horse gets to take the prize pool of money.

Most classrooms had their own sweep running and Nadia organised a couple more $2 sweeps for staff and students to participate in.

A Hinterland Day Tour  (courtesy of Tribal Travel) was given away to a student with the best hat and at 2pm in the kitchen the race was on!!!

Bets were down and sweeps were full.  Everyone was hoping for their horse to pull through into first place.  It was Amercain who crossed the finish line nose first, a horse which Lindsay our Registrar thought had no chance.

Turns out Lindsay was off to buy new shoes with the $48 sweep one winnings and Teacher Michelle from America found it most appropriate when her horse Americain won her the $48 prize pool from sweep two.

Congratulations Ladies!!!

Let’s Jump Over Rainbow!!!

Here is your chance to experience the most intense adrenaline rush you will ever have!!! Tribal Travel is offering a Skydive weekend in Rainbow beach, including transportation, accommodation with breakfast and a 14000 ft tandem jump (landing on the beach!!!!) for only $399*. If you never dared to go by yourself, get a group of friends together and hop on this thrilling weekend.

Picture Perfect Match

Love is in the air, everywhere we look around and GV’s hottest Swiss guy Marco, has won our hearts.

Global Village is never short of a little romance.  We have witnessed many students share a summer fling, fall in love and even go to extremes like getting married.  We thought it would be nice this Spring to match make GV’s hottest guy Marco, with the woman of his dreams, on a romantic date to dinner and the movies.

Perfect Match is a fun dating game of mystery, romance and surprise.  In this case 4 glamorous female contestants perched behind a red curtain gave their honest feelings and words to the hot mystery man who was courting them from the other side. Marco had no idea who was behind the red curtain before deciding his preferred  love affair with one of the lucky contestants.  Marco and his perfect match will get to know each other more in the cinema and over dinner at Italian restaurant, Pasta Pronto.

Choi from Korea helped set the mood by playing some romantic classical numbers on guitar.  The rest of GV watched and waited in anticipation to see who Marco would end up choosing as his perfect match.

Each female contestant signified true beauty of a woman inside and out.  They all shared good looks, amazing personalities, talent and confidence.  Let’s check out how they went.

Contestant No 3: Jenny (Switzerland)

Although Jenny flattered Marco with her hard to get approach she was the first to go.

Contestant No 4: Ananda (Brazil)

Ananda proved to be a caring, loving and sensitive woman but this too was not Marco’s preferred type.

Contestant No 2: Alejandra (Columbia)

Alejandra came across as very fun, friendly and committed.  She likes to party, party, party but Marco had his mind on somebody else.

Contestant No 1: Aurelia (France)

Was it the one night stand question that put Aurelia over the line, who knows but Marco knew at some point that Aurelia was his perfect match!

 Congratulations to the two of you.  We can’t wait to hear all the goss!
