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!

After Cyclone Oma caused last week’s surfing lesson to get canceled, the students finally headed to the beach to catch some waves. After a little rain in the morning, the Sunshine Coast lived up to its name and the afternoon was beautiful and warm. Check out these fantastic photos!

See you all for the next lesson!

Boomerang painting

Today our students took part in some boomerang painting. They were given a chart of Aboriginal symbols, beautiful coloured paint, and wooden boomerangs to create their own masterpiece so they can take home a little piece of traditional Australian culture.

Everyone painted something beautiful and unique. Check out some of the stunning work they made.

Prisoners and Pups

Group

Today in Michelle’s Documentary option we learned about a program in South Australia where ex-racing Greyhounds are paired with prisoners in Adelaide. The women have 8 weeks to teach these dogs how to be pets so that they can be adopted. Luckily, Michelle’s good friend, Shaunagh, works closely with a Greyhound adoption organisation and has three greyhounds!

She brought them all in to meet the class. One of them, Lockey, went through the program and is now a very well-mannered dog. If you want to watch the documentaries, go to abc.net and look for “Prisoners and pups.”  To meet the pups, visit the Eumundi markets on Saturday, they are always ready for a snuggle!

Meet Student Philipp Hänggi

 

My Stay in Noosa by Philipp Hänggi

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Phillip recently studied at Lexis Noosa both in general English and in an Accelerate Small Group Class. He kindly agreed to share his experiences with us. This is his story.

 

My stay in Noosa

My name is Philipp and I live in Switzerland. I decided to brush up on my English before starting a new job in Switzerland. I took some General English followed by an Accelerated Small Group Class. The combination of both courses was excellent. Both for meeting new exciting people and improving the language.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Phillip in his small group class

I chose Noosa because of its nature, beautiful long beaches and because I prefer a charming town rather than a crowded city.

When I arrived in Noosa, I was even more impressed than I had expected by how green it was everywhere. It also means that there are always colourful birds twittering and bush turkeys sometimes with cute chicks around. No wonder that the bush turkey is the symbolic animal of Noosa.

I stayed at a homestay to get the experience how Aussies live and to improve my English even more. It was a very valuable decision which I really enjoyed.

There are plenty of activities people can do in and around Noosa. After school, I usually went surfing which is a must-do in Noosa for anyone of any skill from beginner to expert.

I also went paragliding many times to fly alongside the beach or over the gorgeous National Park to experience a wonderful sunset from a bird’s eye view. That was definitively one of my greatest highlights in Australia.

A bit less adventurous but no less interesting was jogging or walking through the National Park and looking for some Koalas which were hiding in the trees.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

With teacher Kerri and classmate Vanessa

Another amazing thing was simply the remarkable friendliness of the local people. It did not take long to get invited for a drink on the beach or even for a barbeque at their house.

That kindness is already reason enough to come back to Australia.

I am already looking forward to planning my next adventure Down Under and visiting some old friends.

Noosa National Park

Today our students went exploring at the Noosa National Park.

Park 5

Nestled on the doorstep of the famous tourist town of Noosa, this popular park features some of South East Queensland’s most picturesque scenery. Discover secluded beaches, rugged coastal features and views from the iconic headland at Noosa Heads. Spot dolphins frolicking in the ocean at Boiling Pot and Dolphin Point, and be thrilled as thunderous waves crash into the rocks below Hell’s Gates. Keep your eyes peeled for a diverse range of wildlife that live in the park, from sleepy koalas perched on branches to glossy black-cockatoos squawking overhead.
