This morning the Lexis Noosa Sunset class students celebrated the 1st of December by making some Christmas pancakes! Enjoying their pancakes with plenty of toppings. They had a choice of strawberries, banana, blueberries, nutella, cream, maple syrup and chocolate chips….YUM.
Hope you all enjoyed your Christmas pancakes and are all full and ready for a great afternoon of study before you get excited for the weekend.
Flourine the pancake maker and Kaoru having a great morning.
This afternoon the students participated in a cooking class. The students learnt how to make Trifles which is an English dessert that is made up of sponge, cream, jelly, biscuits, cream. custard and fruits.
The students spent up to half an hour preparing and decorating their trifles… best of all we got to sit down and relax while we eat our finished product.
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!
Here in Noosa we have many amazing students who find a way to balance studying English, working and enjoying the beautiful beaches. Tony is one of these students and he has been generous enough to share his experience with us.
Tony has been in Noosa since March 2017 and on Saturdays he works at the Eumundi Markets, a popular tourist market in the small town of Eumundi. On Sundays he works at the local Noosa Farmers Market in Noosaville where he is responsible for cooking the dumplings and also selling them to customers. He has been working there for one month and likes it because it gives him the opportunity to meet locals and practise his English with them.
If you’re looking for a job in Noosa he recommends writing a really good description of your skills. He recommends asking your friends if they know of any jobs in the area and to also look on a website called Gum Tree. He also believes that local employers are looking for students with work experience who learn really quickly and are hard working.
Tony sent out many resumes and after two months of looking and hard work he found the job that was right for him. He feels that working your first week with the company is very important as they will be watching and judging if you are taking the job seriously as well as making sure that you are the right fit for their company.
