Today I caught up with our two youngest brothers, Hyunmin & Minjae from Korea who are currently studying in our High School Preparation Program!
The brothers are best friends and are very excited to be going to Maroochydore State High School in February next year.
Their favourite things on the Sunshine Coast are the nice people, the beaches and the sunshine and their favourite class is HSP with Sonia in the afternoons!
“If you go down to the woods today”…… you will get to see one of our gorgeous Koalas.
Check out the notice board outside the information centre at the entrance to the National Park. It is updated each day to let visitors know where to spot a koala. Australia Zoo is fantastic, but nothing beats seeing an animal in the wild.
Today we said welcome back to lovely Caroline Hughes and a big sunny Noosa welcome to three new teachers.
Caroline returned to the UK this year but couldn’t wait to come back to her ‘Lexis Family’. Matthew, Sarah and Sean are all UK trained and accredited TESOL teachers. Matthew has taught in England and more recently in Ukraine. Sarah has previously taught in England and Sean has previously taught in Vietnam, Korea and Malaysia.
Catch up with all the new students and our new teachers at the big welcome BBQ on Monday from 2pm. They say they are also looking forward to chatting with everyone at Sogo Bar on Monday evening. 🙂
Our wonderful host mother, Sandra Harding organised a National Fundraising event recently for research into breast cancer and was thrilled that some of our students were happy to volunteer.
Sandra wrote; I was so happy that Hyewon and Jung Yun volunteered their time. I do believe that the experience was beneficial as the student volunteers had to point to our map of Noosa sound to show participants where the start of the event was and engage in conversation in a real situation . It is a pleasure to introduce international students to others in Noosa and involve them in community fundraising for the National Breast Cancer Foundation who are grateful.
