Lexis Noosa’s Working Stars

Here in Noosa we have many amazing students who find a way to balance studying English, working and enjoying the beautiful beaches. Mireia is one of these students and she has been generous enough to share her experience with us. 

Mireia

Mireia has been in Noosa since December 2016 and she works at the Boathouse, a popular riverside restaurant on the shores of Noosa River. She has been working there as a dish-washer since January and she likes it because she has the opportunity to meet locals and because they sometimes give her food.

She works about 20 hours a week and feels that the job has helped to improve her English because she has to speak English in the kitchen with the other staff. If you’re looking for a job in Noosa she recommends writing a really good description of your skills. She also believes that local employers are looking for hardworking and flexible employees.

She sent out many resumes and after a month of looking got the job through a friend who was working there. She feels that working as a dishwasher was much more difficult than what she expected beforehand.

Tie Dye

This afternoon the Lexis Noosa student’s tried their luck at Tie Dying a white T-shirt.

The students watch a You Tube video to get the right skills and techniques to master the spiral tie dye look.

Now the Lexis Noosa students will wait 4-6 hours for the dye to sink into the white T-shirt and with any luck the shirts will come out absolutely beautiful!! Stay tune to see the unveiling of the Tie Dye shirts tomorrow and also to see the Lexis Noosa students wearing them to their very own Tie Dye Party!! 🙂

Cooking Lesson

Lexis Noosa students spent the afternoon learning how to make Gyoza.

Gyoza2

Japanese-style gyoza are related to their Chinese counterparts but tend to be more subtle in flavor, stuffed with juicy pork and cabbage lightly seasoned with garlic, scallions, ginger, white pepper, salt, and sugar.

A very special thank you to the Japanese students that helped with the cooking lesson today. Tsubasa Kitayama, Asako Kondo, Ayumi Kosaki and Mei Yoshida, we couldn’t have done it without you!

Looking forward to our next cooking lesson!!
