Noosa National Park

Will it or won’t it rain? It was a little tricky this afternoon as we were making our afternoon activity plans. The Noosa National Park walk was on the agenda but wasn’t sure if we would make it through the park dry.

But four of our beautiful Lexis Noosa students were on a mission to have an adventure and find some amazing Australian animals and of course have fun along the way!

 

 

New and improved Job Workshop!

Lexis Noosa has partnered with Zapala People to create the best Job Workshop for the Lexis Noosa students. Zapala is a “Happy small team, focused on recruiting, training and placement of awesome talented people across the logistics, hospitality and housekeeping industries”.

Lexis Noosa couldn’t be happier to be helping our students as much as we possibly can. Zapala will be helping our students to write their resume, get their TFN & ABN, fill out new employee forms, help with superannuation and of course help finding them a job.

Finding Love at Lexis Noosa

 We love hearing stories that warm our hearts.

Rainer Keller was a student at Lexis English Noosa that studied the Cambridge CAE course with our wonderful teacher Phil back in 2014. Rainer said that when he was studying at Lexis he met the love of his life Keiko who was also studying at Lexis. We are so glad that you both found happiness together.

Rainer 1

This is the beautiful email we received from Rainer Keller:

I’m writing to you 4 years after I left Noosa because Lexis changed my life forever and I wanted to share this with you. At school I met a wonderful girl from Japan, who became my wife just 2 years later. This is me together with my wife Keiko Okuyama at our wedding party in Japan, and 3 other former Lexis students (Miiku Sako and Ayane Kawagoshi from Japan & Donghoon Lee from South Korea).

Rainer 2

Now they are happy parents with a gorgeous baby girl, Yuna.

 

Akiko Miyamoto

We love getting visits from old students.

Akiko.jpg

Akiko studied General English at Lexis Noosa for 17 weeks back in 2015. After her studies Akiko completed farm work to get her second year visa to then move up to Cairns. In Cairns Akiko got a housekeeping job and worked on an overnight boat for a year. The job was 5 days on and 3 days off and her job consisted of housekeeping duties, kitchen hand and training for her dive master to then be a tour guide for the scuba divers.

Akiko said that the best part of her job was the free scuba diving everyday!

She met people from all over the world and absolutely loved her job. Now Akiko is moving to New Zealand to work on a ski resort on the South Island. We love hearing happy and exciting travel adventures from our ex-students.

A perfect way to spend a Friday afternoon if you ask me! Surrounded by good mates, sunshine and the beautiful blue water.

Perfect conditions for a game of beach soccer as the tide was very low. After a good hour of playing the students made their way over to the red and yellow flags for a cool down swim.

Travelling Australia

The afternoon option class Travel Australia have enjoyed sharing travel stories and advice.  They explore different places to stay as well as information and tips on staying healthy as they travel. Many students plan a two or three month holiday after their English courses.  Ramona recently returned and met up with fellow student Patrick to swap stories.  Ramona said that three months travelling around Australia was not enough as she still wanted to visit Tasmania.  She is planning to return in 18 months with her sister and study more and travel. The best tip she gave Patrick was not to drive at night on rural roads.  She mentioned that there was so much amazing wildlife that can be injured at night.maria blog

Their teacher Maria spent 2015 with her family driving around Australia and doing farm and voluntary work.  There is also an on-site travel agent at Noosa who has a wealth of knowledge to share.  It’s a great opportunity for students to plan their adventures!

Kayaking & S.U.P

This afternoon Lexis Noosa students made their way down to ‘Noosa Boardwalk Boat Hire’ to kayak or stand up paddle their way down the Noosa River. A great opportunity for the students to see a different side of beautiful Noosa Heads.
