Like many of our students, Sakura combined a mixture of paid work and voluntary work and all in the Noosa area. WWOOF stands for Willing Workers on Organic Farms and these can be quite small farmsteads and garden centres. You need only do 88 days to qualify for the extra year on your visa and it is a wonderful way to become part of a small local community.

Sakura did her voluntary work at Inner Glow Health products at Tewantin whilst working at a local Japanese restaurant in the evenings. She met other young international people at the farm and the work was enjoyable and not hard.

She was happy that she had gained enough English first ,(thank you teachers Lize and Nicola) to feel confident in the work place.
