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