This afternoon the Lexis Noosa students had the opportunity to join our action packed Aussie afternoon of food tasting and slang.
By the end of this afternoon we had everyone speaking like a True Blue Aussie. G’Day mate, How’s it goin?!?!
Some of the delicious Aussie food that we tried this afternoon included; an oldie but a goodie – Vegemite, fairy bread, Anzac biscuits, Tim Tams, musk lollies, red frogs, Lamingtons, Caramello koalas, Macadamia nuts and to wash it all down we tried some Pasito.
Our Lexis Noosa students spent the afternoon mixing colours and coming up with the perfect colour combinations for their Tie Dye T-Shirts.
We showed them how to do 2 different types of designs for their Tie Dye shirts, a swirl pattern or classic stripes.
In true Lexis Noosa tradition, we will wash our shirts off tonight and wear them to school tomorrow and also down to our local pub for our very own Tie Dye Party!! WooHoo!!
This afternoon the Lexis Noosa students also had a Aussie Slang Workshop to help them understand our tricky accent. Our teacher Sam showed them the classic Aussie slang that can be heard around the Noosa area and also had time to show them how to use a stock whip.
Australia day is on Friday so it just made sense to have Aussie food tasting as an activity. On Australia Day we celebrate all the things we love about Australia! We embrace our land, sense of fair go, lifestyle, democracy, the freedoms we enjoy but particularly our people.
It has been such a busy afternoon with over 90 students participating in the activity. The students got to taste a range of different Aussie food and drinks.
Staring with the classic Vegemite and butter on white bread, Fairy bread, Red frogs, Musk sticks, Caramello Koalas, Lamingtons, Tim tams, Anzac biscuits, Milo & milk, Pasito, Macadamias, Meat pies and sausage rolls.
Everyone looked like they really enjoyed the activity!
