RSPCA Cupcake Day @ Lexis Noosa

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

Thursday 24th 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.

Whats on this week

Poster Week 2

Cooking Class

Our teacher Sam and his cooking option class tried to make homemade pasta this afternoon for the first time. As a pasta lover i’m happy to say that it looked and tasted very yummy!

 

Cooking up a Storm

We found out that all the cooking class enjoy hot and spicy food!  This week we researched types of curry from around the world and we decided to make curry from India.  Using fresh locally grown ginger from Buderim and green beans from Gympie we made two types of curry with condiments.

Everyone found out how to make naan bread, which is a great alternative when you are travelling and camping as it’s quick and easy to make and you can leave to rise whilst you are driving along!

We had a great time talking about food, describing tastes and aromas and following and adapting the recipes we chose together!

 Now all that’s left to do is eat and enjoy!

Cambridge Mock Testing

Our Lexis English Cambridge students had their mock exam this morning in preparation for their final exam in August. This gives the students a chance to practice testing in a strict environment and also a perfect opportunity for the students to receive feedback from their lovely teachers.

Hoping everyone went well on their mock exam!

Strange, Stranger, Strangest….. Who does it better?

FCE classes comparing notes after their grammar session today……. who really studies more than the other???

And who is the most eccentric teacher – Anne or Michelle???
