Mt Coolum National Park

Wednesday afternoon Lexis Noosa students conquered Mt Coolum. It was a beautiful walk along with smiling and sweaty faces.

Mt Coolum

It’s a wonderful activity to get the students out of the classroom and into nature to take a walk up one of the Sunshine Coast’s amazing mountains. It is a great opportunity for the students to see some of Australia’s rare and threatened plants, wildflowers and bird life.

The students were happy to see some spectacular coastal views.

This weeks student night is something a little bit different..

Today we met the Sunshine Coast Lexis English campus at Noosa Beach for a game of soccer. The last game that was played against Maroochydore was 10 months ago and Noosa were the big winners.

What a great afternoon for everyone involved, whether you were playing the game of soccer or hanging out and spectating while you soak up the winter sun.

Thanks for coming along everyone and congratulations to Noosa Lexis School for winning, yay!

After our awesome soccer game we made our way to Halse Lodge to celebrate for student night. Cheap drinks, good vibes and English speaking!

What a Cheesy Afternoon!

 

What a beautiful way to start the weekend than with a Cheese Tasting session.

Cheese Tasting 2

Our lucky Lexis Noosa students were able to try 5 different types cheeses from our region and see how it compares to their countries.

Cheese Number One:

JINDI TRIPLE CREAM BRIE

As a dessert cheese, the Jindi Triple Cream is very rich and full flavoured. Its butter-like texture melts in your mouth and the taste lingers for some time. Beneath the white mould bloom lies a glorious golden interior.

Cheese Number Two:

TRILOGY CLUB CHEDDAR

This trilogy club cheese takes vintage cheddar and pairs it with Mediterranean-inspired ingredients like summery herbs and sundried tomatoes. Just one nibble will have you hooked. The South Cape Trilogy range includes 3 cheeses, each cleverly combined with a selection of unique flavours.

Cheese Tasting 3

 

Cheese Number Three:

KING ISLAND BLUE CHEESE

Blue vein cheese is a unique category of mould ripened cheese as it ripens from the interior, as opposed to the exterior (like soft white cheese). Blue vein has a strong tangy flavour, a pungent aroma and a smooth and creamy texture.

Cheese Number Four:

MERSEY VALLEY CHEDDAR

Mersey Valley is Australia’s best loved vintage club cheddar! Mersey Valley vintage club cheddar was created over 35 years ago. Mersey Valley Classic has an extra strong bite, which is balanced with a crumbly melt-in your mouth texture. Mersey Valley Classic is a very versatile cheese that is perfect for a platter, as a snacking cheese or for use in cooking.

TASMANIAN HERITAGE CAMAMBERT

Tasmanian Heritage Camembert has a wonderfully satisfying smooth, mild and delicate flavour. Its rind has a dense, even white mould covering, with a slight mushroom aroma, revealing a silky yet firm and pale centre.

Cheese Tasting 4

Hope you had a cheese-tastic afternoon trying the beautiful cheeses from Australia 🙂

Volleyball at Lexis Noosa!

Beautiful afternoon spent playing Volleyball at our local Backpackers, Nomads KB’s.

What better way to spend the afternoon then with friends playing volleyball and having a cheeky afternoon drink 🙂

YMCA – Activities

Wondering what the YMCA tour group have been up to? 

After an eventful morning learning English the YMCA tour group were ready to get to the beach. Their activity for the day was bodyboarding and they were so excited to learn how to do this because this was a very new activity for them.

The activity started with a safety talk just to explain how the ocean works and what they should expect in the water as it was quite a windy day.

safety talkWalk to the beach

After that it was time to get into the water! The students were a little bit nervous to start with but after the instructor pushed them into a few waves they were ready to catch them on their own.

What a beautiful afternoon to spend by the beach!
