Aussie Food Tasting

Always a popular activity for our Lexis Noosa students to participate in. It gives them the opportunity to try different Australian food that they haven’t tried before.

I think the best Aussie food that the students tried in the activity was Tim Tams!! Give it 9 stars out of 5! Haha

Eumundi markets

On Wednesday afternoon our Pre-Intermediate classes went to the Eumundi markets to do an English activity and to see the world famous food and craft markets.

Our students needed to complete the sentence and write about their experiences that they shared with each other that day.

“Yesterday we went to Eumundi markets with the class…..”

“Yesterday we went with the school to the Eumundi markets. That weather was good and we enjoyed it. After Kana walked around the markets she decided to buy a Pitaya bowl. She enjoyed the food a lot because it was very good.  Jenny decided to buy a sugar cane juice. But she didn’t enjoy it because she thought it would be a sweet flavour but it smelt like ginger. Nerea didn’t buy anything because she has been to the markets 4 times before.

We enjoyed the live music. The boy played a Didgeridoo and it was the first time we listened to traditional aboriginal music.

The experience in Eumundi market was amazing!!”

Written by Jenny, Nerea and Kana

“Yesterday we went to Eumundi Market.

We ate hot dogs, ice-cream and slinky potatoes.

But we bought nothing more.

We saw worm juice, fake ear pods and a Macaw.

We listened to Aboriginal music.

We watched caricature, finger painting , face painting and leather work.

Eumundi Market had Brazilian Tapioca food and Japanease Okonomiyaki.

There were bargains and we saw paisley print clothes.

So we spent a good time together.”

What’s on This Week

Let’s have a look at what activities are being done at Lexis Noosa this week!

12.11.18

It’s the Weekend!

Park 5

If you haven’t already than you must go exploring through the Noosa National Park! It’s a beautiful walk along a coastal track and stunning views like this one. Don’t forget to look up high for a cuddly koala around the Tea Tree Bay area.

Eumundi Markets

Eumundi Markets are a must see tourist attraction on the Sunshine Coast! It is on Wednesday and Saturday mornings starting at 7am. Just need to catch the bus 630 from the Noosa Junction station and get off at Eumundi Station. Have fun exploring the hand made items at the markets and enjoying all the delicious food and drink stalls. Yum!!

Koala Australia Zoo

Another must see tourist attraction would have to be the world famous Crocodile Hunter Australia Zoo at Beerwah. You can catch a greyhound bus from the Noosa Junction and it will take you there and back for the day. If you need help booking see the wonderful staff members at the Student Uni Travel store located near the school.

Kayak 7 Another weekend idea could be to hire a kayak or stand up paddle board and explore the Noosa River. Just see the friendly staff at Boardwalk Boat Hire down near the Sofitel Jetty in Noosa Heads.

LiveMusic

There is always plenty of music to listen to around the Noosa Heads area!

Cafe Le Monde has live music from Captain Squidlicker & The Sinking Ships starting from 8.30pm Friday night. Join your friends for some dinner and drinks and have a wonderful night out!

Aromas Noosa has the best cocktails in the town. It’s located on Hastings street it’s the perfect location to take a seat and watch the day go by.

The Driving Force Tour are gearing up for an epic night in Noosa this Friday and Cornerstone can’t wait to have them live on stage.

Farmers-Market-Guide_Cover

Nestled among fragrant gum trees, the footy grounds become a hive of activity for the Noosa Farmers Market. The markets offer plenty of different stalls including organic produce, skin care products, marinades, sauces, skin care products, freshly baked breads and cheeses.

noosa beach

With a weekend of spring sunshine ahead, a swim or surf at Noosa Main Beach sounds like the perfect remedy to a long working week!

We hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Afternoon Fun at Lexis Noosa

Colourful Afternoon

Our Lexis Noosa students spent the afternoon mixing colours and coming up with the perfect colour combinations for their Tie Dye T-Shirts.

Tie Dye 2.5.18 1  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!!

 

Aussie Adventure

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.

Conversation Club

Today our Lexis Noosa students from Kindai High School enjoyed some tasty Australian treats as they played games and practiced speaking English with each other.

Aussie Food Tasting

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.
