World Quiz

World Quiz activity on Friday Afternoon tested the knowledge of students about geographical locations. The students worked in groups answering questions on Australian state and territories, rivers, oceans, capital cities, and planets. We provided snacks to give the brain vital energy to work efficiently.

Well done to Lucy and Janique, two smart cookies who answered the most amount of question correctly gaining themselves a lovely bottle of Malbec and Cadbury chocolates!! Well done girls!

It doesn’t rain often in Noosa, but when it does we need to find different activities to do that are fun, enjoyable and keep the students entertained. Our soccer match was cancelled against Maroochydore, so the Noosa students decided to get some extra practice in for next week rescheduled game, and played some futsal. 



The students played a friendly match against one another and had the opportunity to practice their ball skills and team work but most importantly have a fun time 🙂 🙂
