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
Wednesday 23rd 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.
Have a look and see what the Lexis Noosa students will be doing next week after school!

Here in Noosa we have many amazing students who find a way to balance studying English, working and enjoying the beautiful beaches. Tony is one of these students and he has been generous enough to share his experience with us.
Tony has been in Noosa since March 2017 and on Saturdays he works at the Eumundi Markets, a popular tourist market in the small town of Eumundi. On Sundays he works at the local Noosa Farmers Market in Noosaville where he is responsible for cooking the dumplings and also selling them to customers. He has been working there for one month and likes it because it gives him the opportunity to meet locals and practise his English with them.
If you’re looking for a job in Noosa he recommends writing a really good description of your skills. He recommends asking your friends if they know of any jobs in the area and to also look on a website called Gum Tree. He also believes that local employers are looking for students with work experience who learn really quickly and are hard working.
Tony sent out many resumes and after two months of looking and hard work he found the job that was right for him. He feels that working your first week with the company is very important as they will be watching and judging if you are taking the job seriously as well as making sure that you are the right fit for their company.
A huge welcome to our new starters for this week!
Weekly we are welcoming students from all over the world at Lexis English & today we are lucky enough to have Alexandre & Nicole from Brazil, Antoine from France and Corinne, Dario, Fisnik, Aline & Manuel from Switzerland.
We hope that you all have a great time here at Lexis Noosa and get to make some awesome memories while you are in Australia.
