We hope that you all enjoy your time at Lexis Noosa. Have a great time exploring all of what Australia has to offer. Don’t fall in love with the country too much otherwise you’ll never want to leave.

Aussie Food Tasting

Australia day is on Friday so it just made sense to have Aussie food tasting as an activity.  On Australia Day we celebrate all the things we love about Australia! We embrace our land, sense of fair go, lifestyle, democracy, the freedoms we enjoy but particularly our people.

It has been such a busy afternoon with over 90 students participating in the activity. The students got to taste a range of different Aussie food and drinks.

Staring with the classic Vegemite and butter on white bread, Fairy bread, Red frogs, Musk sticks, Caramello Koalas, Lamingtons, Tim tams, Anzac biscuits, Milo & milk, Pasito, Macadamias, Meat pies and sausage rolls.

Everyone looked like they really enjoyed the activity!

Make Your Own Pot Plant

Our Lexis Noosa students spent the afternoon painting their own terracotta pot.

Cambridge Cruise

Couldn’t think of a better way to spend the afternoon than with a beautiful sunset over the Noosa River!

 

And that’s exactly what our Cambridge students did yesterday afternoon 🙂

Our 7 Cambridge classes spent the afternoon/night getting to know each other better along with a couple of drinks and snacks while cruising down the beautiful Noosa River.

We hope you all had a wonderful time!

Noosa National Park

This afternoon our Lexis Noosa TAP students enjoyed a breathtaking walk through our world renowned Noosa National Park!

Unfortunately we didn’t spot any Koala’s, turtles or dolphins today but the views of the picturesque coastline is worth the walk. Hope you all enjoyed the afternoon.

Movie Afternoon

This afternoon Lexis Noosa students were able to choose between 3 movies to watch and enjoy.

Class 1

The activity was so successful we decided to run 2 cinemas. In one classroom we watched ‘White House Down’ and in the other ‘We’re the Millers’.

Hope you all enjoyed the movies and all of the yummy treats.
