Boomerang Painting

This afternoon our Lexis Noosa students are trying to paint traditional boomerangs.

Boom 6

A boomerang is a thrown tool, typically constructed as a flat airfoil, that is designed to spin about an axis perpendicular to the direction of its flight. A returning boomerang is designed to return to the thrower. It is well known as a weapon used by Indigenous Australians for hunting.

They all look amazing! Well done everyone!

Game 1

It’s a great chance to meet other students from different classes within our Lexis Noosa school.

Making new friends and having a wonderful time is what Lexis Noosa is all about!!!

How well do you know your classmates?

The students in the writing option were excited to speak, listen and write so they interviewed one another about their  hope and ambitions for the future.  They were asked to describe their personality and things they were good at doing.

Momo and Catarina from Intermediate General English were happy to interview each other.

Momo

 I interviewed Catarina. She is 24 years old and from Brazil. She wanted to come to Noosa with her boyfriend but, she couldn’t…

She described herself as kind and she always tries to do things for her friends. She is a very hard worker. When she was in Brazil, she worked as a copy writer and wrote about culture in her job. It means she’s good at writing Portuguese on a computer. On the other hand, she is not good at Maths.

I interviewed Momoko. She is 22 years old and she is living in Noosa at the moment.  She defines herself as a “confused” person because she spends a lot of time choosing something.

She said that her best skill is eating chocolate and ice –cream and also cooking.  She is not good at using computers.

For her, being an engineer is the worst job and a doctor is considered to be a good job in Japan, but she likes animals, so she plans to start her own business, like a farm, in the future. She prefers to work alone or just with a few people. This is her dream job owning her own farm with horses.

Her answer to my surprise question was: “My name. I would like to change to Sabrina”
