Halloween Competition

Congratulations to Rebecca from Lexis Noosa’s Upper Intermediate B class who won the Halloween competition!

Halloween

Rebecca had to guess how many lollies were in the big jar. The answer was 247 but Rebecca was the closest guess at 249. The prize was of course the big glass of lollies and a boat trip for herself and 7 friends.

Blinded English Engagement

It was a very noisy afternoon in the halls of Lexis Noosa with the Listen and Talk Option class.

Sam's Class

With one student completely blind and the other in full command. There was sure to be carnage.

But with the skilled listening and speaking skills of our amazing students. The class managed to complete all tasks with little casualties 🙂

Today we welcome Helson, Matheus & Ricardo from Brazil, Janine, Daria, Timon & Doris from Switzerland, Yuri, Kaoru & Rei from Japan and Noelia from Spain.

It’s nearly Halloween so what could be a better activity than carving pumpkins!

Pumpkin winner 2

It was a very messy activity but the students didn’t seem to mind.

Pumpkin

We had some awesome pumpkins in the end but there could only be one winning team.

So a big congratulations to Melanie, Larissa, Fabio, Ramona and Selina for creating the scariest pumpkin.

School Holidays!

Attention all Lexis Noosa students.

Exciting times ahead as the Christmas break is coming up quick. We thought that you might want to plans your trips early. So take a look at the dates below and visit the ladies at Student Uni and Travel to start planning your vacation.

Slide1

So many different and exciting holidays that you could pick from.

Head down the coast to Sydney where you can get the best of both worlds by visiting the amazing beaches, shops, historical buildings and the Blue Mountains which is one of Australia’s most well known national parks.

Are you someone that loves relaxing on a yacht in beautiful crystal clear water in the Whitsundays or Cairns? Where you can explore the worlds largest coral reef while you snorkel with some of Australia’s most colourful marine life and coral gardens.

Or would you rather get away to the big city and spend your days visiting shops, and some of the funkiest bars/cafes and historical buildings in Melbourne.

You could even head out to Uluru and visit one of Australia’s most breathtaking tourist icons and learn all about our history.

Enjoy!

 

Cooking class – Trifles

This afternoon the students participated in a cooking class.  The students learnt how to make Trifles which is an English dessert that is made up of sponge, cream, jelly, biscuits, cream. custard and fruits.

The students spent up to half an hour preparing and decorating their trifles… best of all we got to sit down and relax while we eat our finished product.

 

 

Wildlife Rescuers

What do you do if you find a baby bird out of its nest? If you’re out walking and you see a snake what’s the safest thing to do?

Maria

All these questions were answered by wildlife volunteer Ros who works for WILVOs a wildlife rescue organisation that helps birds and mammals from Bundaburg to Brisbane.  Students were taught about the importance of not feeding wild animals and respecting the nature around them in this beautiful part of the world.

Maria1

Ros bought in the pouches, rescue cages and baby bottles and showed the students what equipment was used to help the sick and injured wildlife.

Thanks Ros and WILVOs for all your great work in helping our native animals!

Little Sister arranged a special meal deal just for the Lexis Noosa students to enjoy on the night! Cheeseburgers, chips and a beer or a mango daiquiri……..  Delicious! What more could you ask for!

Thank you so much for a wonderful student night and I can’t wait to see you all on the next one!

Cheesy Afternoon

Both afternoon and morning classes had the opportunity to try some award winning cheeses from all around Australia.

Cheese #1 – 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.

Cheese Tasting8 18.10.17

Cheese #2 – 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 Tasting2 18.10.17

Cheese #3 – 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 #4 – 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 Tasting7 18.10.17

Cheese #5 – 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.
