Two years ago, Yuji and Kazume met whilst studying at Lexis Noosa and are now happily married and the proud parents of gorgeous little Ryusei.

Yuji and Kazume returned to visit Noosa and their former teachers, Kerri and Phil, were thrilled and surprised to learn that a romance blossomed in their classrooms.
Yuji is now teaching English at a junior high school and hopes that his students will one day have the chance of learning English in Australia also.

Thank you for coming back to visit us. 🙂
Don’t forget Job Workshop is today at 2pm in the Cambridge Computer Rooms.
This job below just came in, and there are plenty more to show at the job workshop today!
Raw treats are always a better alternative then refined cakes or biscuits, using whole foods to regulate our blood sugar level and to cease any cravings. Treats should always be enjoyed in moderation and these raw salted protein balls are a great snack or dessert option that add extra protein, complex carbohydrates and good fats in our diets.
Raw Salted Caramel Protein Balls
1 cup of cashews
1/2 cup dessicated coconut
1 scoop of whey protein powder
1 Tablespoon of maple syrup
2 Tablespoons of raw pepitas
2 Tablespoons of coconut water
Pinch of Himalayan salt
Extra coconut for rolling
Blend cashews in food processor until in chunk form
Add all the other ingredients and blend until a moist mixture is formed.
Roll mixture into balls and dip in extra coconut
Freeze to set and then enjoy 🙂
The students had the opportunity to take part in two different workshops over the last two days; Belly Dancing and Fluid Power Yoga.
One of our lovely students, Helena, took the students though a creative and fun belly dancing session, showing the students how we can move certain parts of our body, while isolating others.
In this morning’s yoga class, the students worked with building strength, enhancing agility and flexibility while moving with a flow. Through rhythmic, circular and spiraling movements, the students learned to liberate poses that are often rigidly held, and practiced their hand stances.
Every morning at 8.30 am, you will find these keen young men preparing for the day’s lessons ahead.

These Saudi army officers are all from the Ministry of National Guard and will train as helicopter pilots in Australia.
Director of Studies, Becky Cantor says that they are one of the most motivated groups she has ever worked with. “I really look forward to meeting with them each morning. It is very hard to move into such a different culture and have such high expectations on their shoulders. However, they are always cheerful and motivated and are working hard.
Can you believe we are only one month away from winter! The weather yesterday was still sunny and warm, this is why we love Noosa. Sea temperature is still around 24 degrees and air temperature still reaching around 26. The students are taking advantage of these lovely autumn days with our monthly Volleyball competition. Another great Monday afternoon activity 🙂
A big welcome to the new students who arrived today from: Japan, Korea and Switzerland. Good luck in your studies and enjoy your time here in Noosa.
