Friday afternoon saw the students make the walk to main beach. With games planned fun was on the cards. As is the way with all the best layed plans the games were put to one side while the boys went out body surfing the girls braved the wind and the sand blast to top up the tans. Although the planned games took a back seat fun was definitely had by all.
Last night was Student night over at KBs. Having arrived a little early I was like the typical man waiting on the woman to get ready. The students arrived late at nearly 10.40 but once there the party really began. The students lead the club in a new dance and it even got yours truely up on the table. With a great atmosphere even the doorman found time to bust a move or two on the dance floor along side our students.
Can’t wait for next week!!!
Some great photos to follow. Currently having technical difficulties.
They are both working at Rickys (http://www.rickys.com.au/ ) in Noosa and say they love working and living on the Sunshine Coast. They gave their teacher Annette Sievert a big hug and said thanks for all the help they had received.
With the not so favorable weather the activities were taken in doors and the students took part in their favourite pastime of table tennis. With the new intake of students the regular contenders had their work cut out.
A lucky Quetin defeated the favorites Chris (me) and Sabrina, yes a doubles team in the singles comp! Three time winner Mauro found himself taking an early walk when fast emerging favourite Oli beat him convincingly. As always the sportsmanship was of the highest order and the fun could be heard around the college especially by Basil who plays the game as loud as Maria Sharapova plays tennis!
It came down to regular contender Daniel and Oli for the title match. Always the bridesmaid never the Bride Daniel finally broke his curse and claimed the win. Being a PE teacher and general sports enthusiast I can safely say the standard of the games today was as high as I’ve watched and at times worthy of professional standards.
Each week we will be introducing one of our Cambridge teachers at Lexis Noosa. This week it is CAE teacher – Tim Bloxsome!
Raised by wolves, Teacher Tim learned to howl before he learned English so he can justifiably claim to be bilingual. Coming from Perth, Tim was destined to become a miner, digging up metallic rocks, but one day, deep in a mine, he discovered a library, and eventually emerged from that hole with an honours degree in English Lit. After howling his wolf howls onto newspaper pages and fashion magazines he decided to retreat from journalism and howl a whole novel or two. The first novel was made into a film. He then prowled the world for a few years. He’s now more interested in figuring out how to land an air (surfing manoeuvre), and teaching like a wolf possessed.
A professional soccer player in Italy, Mattia has now been signed up by A league soccer team – Perth Glory, in Western Australia.
Although Mattia Cosenza is ‘thrilled’ to be going to Perth for this amazing opportunity, he is also very sad to be leaving Lexis English Noosa and especially his teacher Michael Schwabe.
He presented his teacher Michael with a signed book today “the story of the world cup”, and is going to dedicate his first goal to Michael!
