RSPCA Cupcake Day @ Lexis Noosa

ATTENTION LEXIS NOOSA STUDENTS

RSPCA Cupcake Day gathers bakers from across the nation to make a stand for animal welfare. Absolutely 100 per cent of funds raised through your baking efforts will help rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome the 135,000 animals that come through RSPCA shelters every year.

Cupcake Day is on

Thursday 24th August 

READY. SET. BAKE!

Every dollar you raise will change the lives of animals in need.

The RSPCA receives less than two per cent of our funding from the government, so we rely on the generosity of people like you. The money you raise will rescue animals from cruelty and prepare them for their forever homes, by providing shelter, nourishment, veterinary treatment and rehabilitation.

If you sell each cupcake for a humble $2:

  • 12 cupcakes can provide an orphaned kitten with a bed, litter tray, meals and a toy.
  • 25 cupcakes can cover one week of antibiotics for an animal recovering from surgery.
  • 50 cupcakes can de-sex a cat or dog so they can be adopted.
  • 120 cupcakes can subsidise emergency surgery for an animal.
  • 175 cupcakes can subsidise the cost of prosecuting a cruelty offender in court.

BEER 1: STONE AND WOOD

Stone & Wood from Byron Bay have burst onto the craft beer scene with some fantastic hand crafted beers including this Pacific Ale which is jam packed full of fresh tropical fruit aromas and flavours. The quintesential summer sessional beer, it has crowd pleaser written all over it.

BEER 2: WHITE RABBIT DARK ALE

Brewed out of the old ‘Little Creatures’ Brewery that was carted across the country from Fremantle (WA), this great dark ale has a great intensity with sweet tones. Medium hops with caramel and toffee notes that lingers for considerable time.

BEER 3: JAMES SQUIRE ONE FIFTY LASHES PALE ALE

James Squire One Fifty Lashes Pale Ale is a crisp finishing, Australian style cloudy Pale Ale with malted wheat for refreshing character and a concoction of hops which create fruity aromas of passionfruit, grapefruit and citrus. (Brewed in inner-city Sydney)

Beer Tasting 2

BEER 4: CRICKERTERS ARMS LAGER

This easy drinking Cricketers Arms lager was specially crafted to honour friendships and celebrate achievements paying homage to a time where telling stories, cheers and post-match banter was an important tradition. Keepers Lager is crafted using sun-dried malt and infused with citrus Amarillo hops. (Brewed in Laverton, Melbourne)

BEER 5: COOPERS EXTRA STOUT

Coopers Extra Stout is a beacon for lovers of a hearty brew. With its robust flavour comprising a blend of fruit, chocolate and hop bitter notes it’s everything a stout should be. Brewed naturally using a top fermentation method, this beer’s unique rich, dark texture comes from specially roasted black malt. (South Australia)

Hope you enjoyed your afternoon activity have a wonderful weekend and see you all back at school on Monday!

Noosa vs Maroochydore Student Night

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!
