Global Village Noosa School information

Check out the great new school page in the GV Australia 2011 school brochure. Are you in it?

There’s only one Noosa and its stunning natural environment, beautiful beaches and laid-back life style make it a unique study destination. Where else can you see koalas on your morning walk to school then surf in a warm blue ocean with dolphins swimming nearby in the afternoon?

Jose From Spain Loved Every Second of Noosa

Very special Spanish Guest Jose, came to Noosa 3 weeks ago and is now on his way back to freezing cold Spain. He will be taking home some cherished summertime memories from Noosa, Australia.

Nadia the GV Noosa Activity Coordinator with Jose from Spain.

Heres what Jose had to say about his time here in Noosa.

“I have had wonderful experiences at GV Noosa.  The staff at GV are really nice and my classmates are very nice.  The activities and teachers are very fun.  You don’t need to worry about coming here alone because I assure you that you will meet people here when you come and you’re going to have lots of fun. 

 The lifestyle is quiet but there is still people and movement in the town.  Noosa is relaxed and safe.   If you like beaches and surfing, Noosa is the perfect place for it.  the local people are very friendly and kind.

My most favourite experience was  surfing for 4 hours every day.   I would surf down at Main Beach.  I tried down at Sunshine Beach but the waves there are not best for a beginner like me, they are better for the advanced surfers.  I have seen everything since being here.  I have seen dolphins, sharks, turtles, koalas, snakes, dingoes and kangaroos.  My host family has been very nice.  There is a swimming pool at the home I lived with and it is in a very good location close to the beach and it is just 20 mins walk to the school. 

I think it is important when you come here to share a house with another student from a different nationality so you can share and use your English together.  GV Noosa provides you with this opportunity.

Thanks everybody at Global Village.  It’s a pleasure collaborating with you and I will recommend you to all the Spanish students.  I wish you all the success for the future and see you soon!!  You are very welcome in Spain!!”
