Candle Making

This afternoon our Lexis Noosa students were able to have a go at making their own candles.

Candle 2

We first watched a video on YouTube for the instructions on how to start making our candles.

We melted the wax carefully and added our colour and oils for fragrance. What scent would you choose? Vanilla, lavender, rose or jasmine?

After everything was added to the melted wax we carefully pour into the jar to create our perfect candles!

The customer service students were back at it again today with a lovely high tea. The treats provided were truly incredible including delicately made teacup biscuits, delicious chicken wraps, and a very cute watermelon echidna. The faces of the customers lit up every time a new plate was brought out.

The customer service students improve in confidence and ability every time they host an activity. They work incredibly hard to use the workplace vocabulary, create an enjoyable atmosphere, and it’s clear the customers appreciate the effort put into the afternoon. They even made conversation cards!

Beer Tasting

Our customer service students were hard at work again this afternoon serving up a variety of Australian craft beers. The students had a quick lesson on the language needed to discuss different the different appearances, aromas, tastes, and palates. They quickly dived into their work preparing the tables with food platters, activities and surveys. The customers were greeted by the friendly front of house staff as they arrived and shown to their designated tables.

As the samples were poured, the customers were told some information about each of the beers which were further accompanied by a tasting menu prepared by the customer service students.

 

We even had our own security guard who took care of all the intruders.
