Meet our new member of staff…Nico!

Nico has joined the Lexis team and is currently training at Noosa and also looking after our awesome Junior students. Nico will then be joining our Sunshine Coast campus from April…

“Hi there, my name is Nico, I am happy to be the new student support/activities coordinator at Lexis Sunshine Coast Campus! I love the outdoors, water sports in particular such as swimming, rowing and kayaking. I have practiced many sports but I stuck to rowing since I was 12 years old and represented my city in France for national championships. I have travelled around Europe, parts of the Caribbean, Australia, south-east Asia and I am looking forward to discover the rest of the world as soon as possible. I was born in Belgium and grew up in France, so I am lucky to speak Dutch, French, English and a bit of German. I have always enjoyed the language courses I studied at school and this led me to study International trade in France before leaving for Australia. I have pursued different studies here in Australia on the Gold Coast and studied Environmental Sciences. Eventually I will work on a project combining both International trade and Environmental Sciences. I am very excited to be part of the Lexis team and I am looking forward meeting all the students and staff at the campus. My aim is to make sure students are having fun and that they all keep great memories from their stay on the beautiful Sunshine Coast!”

Thanks Nico 🙂

We’re always learning at Lexis (even the teachers)!

Senior teacher Annette Sievert and teacher Michelle Previti recently attended a teacher professional development day run by English Australia.

Today, they reported back to the teachers all the new ideas/theories and teaching tips that they had learned whilst in Brisbane. They were both inspiring and everyone left with new ideas and enthusiasm, which will benefit all our students. Annette and Michelle were also lucky enough to win free teaching text books at the conference!

Hat making for Mad Hatters Party + Easter Egg Hunt

The students had a chance to get creative and make their own hats for their upcoming Easter Mad Hatters Party tomorrow night at Shades. The hats looked great, lots of vibrant colours, feathers and style. I cant wait to see what they look like on the night!Image

Then it was time to hide some Easter Eggs for the annual Lexis English Easter Egg Hunt. Image

What a fantastic afternoon!!! 

The Beautiful Noosa National Park Walk

The Beautiful National Park in Noosa is a must see while visiting the area. Famous for spotting Koalas in the wild, Noosa National Park hosts a range of beautiful unspoiled bays, with pristine sand and crystal clear waters. The students had the opportunity to hike to some breathtaking bays with not a soul to be seen.

“Hello Becky here are the photos of Moreton Island… it was just paradise!”

We get so excited to hear from our students outside of the school and to read what adventures they are experiencing in Australia!

Loïc kindly took the time to email our Director of Studies, Becky and here are some slide photos of his trip to Moreton Island:

Thanks Loïc!!

Congrats to Ivan & Sergey Makshakov (and teacher Anjali) on those outstanding IELTS results!

Ivan and Sergey studied FCE, CAE and CPE with IELTS at the end, to prepare for their exams for entry into Melbourne university…

They needed an overall IELTS score of 6.5 with no score lower than a 6. They got overall scores of 7 and 8 which is outstanding!

They feel that the Cambridge courses certainly gave them the English level and their IELTS teacher – Anjali prepared them for the exam.

They are now sending their girlfriends to Lexis Noosa to follow in their footsteps 🙂
