What a fun afternoon! It was great to see so many students wanting to participate in some Aussie activities. We started the afternoon testing the student’s knowledge about Australia. With a few tricky Australian questions there were only five students who achieved a 10 out of 15 and were placed into a draw for first prize: Free trip to the Everglades (valued at $200) from Student Uni Travel. Congratulation to Francesco!
Next up was the pie eating competition. The rules were simple, first to finish their pie wins. With a cold VB to wash it down it was a close match between Tsuyoshi and Sergey, and with Caroline and Debbie taking their time to enjoy their pie and beer. Sergey was winner in the end and is now an owner of a large Aussie inflatable thong, well done!
The last game was pin the tail on the Kangaroo, with most of the student unfamiliar with this game it was great to see them enjoying themselves. Well done to Debbie and Loic who both got the closest spots to the tail winning a beer and coffee voucher.
After the activities the students were able to enjoy some Aussie foods such as; Vegemite sandwiches, Lamingtons and Pavlova! Happy Australia Day!
