Scavenger Hunt

Today the students were set the challenging task of solving clues to lead them to a place in the junction.

The task would take the students all over the junction. They did a great job and the first team finished in just over 40 minutes.

The task was made more difficult as their were 2 red herring clues and the answers gave a mix of letters that needed to be re arranged.

Have a go yourself and see how many clues you can find?

Mixed Table Tennis

The Lexis Noosa students took to the table tennis tournament.  It was mixed doubles with 8 couples taking part including wives playing against husbands and a staff member battling through the pain!!!

The tournament drew quite a crowed as the games became competitive.  Everyone really got in to the afternoon with cheers and groans ringing around the college. 

The final saw friends pitted against each other and the defending singles champion Mauro aiming to win back to back tournaments. But after not picking his own wife to partner him Johnathan was not going to let that happen as he and first timer Hachi beating Mauro and Rina in a very close and skillful final 22-20.

This puts the table tennis league on a knife-edge and with the imminent arrival of the Cambridge students to be added to the mix.  Watch this space!!!

Don’t forget to check the notice board for future activities and add your own ideas for future afternoons!!!!


After more than two decades of bringing the cream of Australian music talent to the beautiful resort town of Noosa Heads Queensland, the festival is now one of Australia’s longest running and most esteemed jazz festivals in the country.

The list of performers who have electrified the venues of Noosa over the years is impressive. Greats like Bob Barnard, James Morrison, George Golla and Vince Jones are just a few of the big names who have wowed audiences in one of Australia’s most desirable beach resorts.

Noosa is blessed with pristine beaches, beautiful national parkland and a magnificent river, but when the jazz festival comes to town, music lovers can enjoy one of the most unique holidays imaginable. The Noosa Jazz Festival offers a magical environment and great music in venues overlooking the river and the ocean. Created to celebrate the start of Spring, the Noosa Jazz Festival plays an important role in attracting tourists to the region who are looking for an escape from the winter climate.

From humble beginnings in a single restaurant, the festival today boasts over 90 performances in multiple venues on the renowned Hastings Street strip, a large purpose built jazz stage at the Noosa Lions Park overlooking the beautiful Noosa River, Bicentennial Hall, which is the home of the Noosa Jazz Club and venues all the way to Noosaville come alive to the great sound of jazz and progressive music every year.

Today, the festival has grown from a community event to a sophisticated celebration of jazz diffusion and progressive music, which is an internationally acclaimed festival attracting thousands of music lovers to South East Queensland.

In recent years, performances from Cat Empire, Paul Grabowsky, Megan Washington, Katie Noonan and the kings and queens of traditional jazz like The Syncopators, Peter Gaudion and George Washingmachine amongst many great performers, have given the Noosa Jazz Festival a renewed lease of life. The organisers have big plans for the future and are now investing in attracting international performers to the festival.

Join music lovers from all over Australia at the Noosa Jazz Festival from the 30th August to the 2nd September, 2012. You’ll enjoy alfresco lunches on Hastings Street , magnificent open air concerts at the river side stage in Festival Village, and be rewarded with some of the best live music in the world.
