Cooking Afternoon

This afternoon some of the Lexis Noosa students were lucky enough to enjoy a cooking class with our awesome teacher Serena.

Cooking class 2

Serena decided to show the students how to make a Mushroom Risotto. It’s quite an easy recipe for the student to follow along and have some fun too!

cooking class 1

It turned out great everyone. Hope you all had a fun afternoon learning how to make Mushroom Risotto.

cooking class 4

How well do you know your classmates?

The students in the writing option were excited to speak, listen and write so they interviewed one another about their  hope and ambitions for the future.  They were asked to describe their personality and things they were good at doing.

Momo and Catarina from Intermediate General English were happy to interview each other.

Momo

 I interviewed Catarina. She is 24 years old and from Brazil. She wanted to come to Noosa with her boyfriend but, she couldn’t…

She described herself as kind and she always tries to do things for her friends. She is a very hard worker. When she was in Brazil, she worked as a copy writer and wrote about culture in her job. It means she’s good at writing Portuguese on a computer. On the other hand, she is not good at Maths.

I interviewed Momoko. She is 22 years old and she is living in Noosa at the moment.  She defines herself as a “confused” person because she spends a lot of time choosing something.

She said that her best skill is eating chocolate and ice –cream and also cooking.  She is not good at using computers.

For her, being an engineer is the worst job and a doctor is considered to be a good job in Japan, but she likes animals, so she plans to start her own business, like a farm, in the future. She prefers to work alone or just with a few people. This is her dream job owning her own farm with horses.

Her answer to my surprise question was: “My name. I would like to change to Sabrina”

 

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.

Don’t they look incredible? Take a look at Jessica and Leonie’s masterpieces.

Sandcastle Competition

Today we took the Kindai High School students and General English students from Lexis Noosa to Noosa Main Beach for a Sandcastle Competition!!

Sandcastle2

Students from Kindai High School building sandcastles and enjoying the beautiful weather Noosa has to offer.

It was really hard to choose a winner as there was so many good sandcastles to pick from!

We hope you all had a wonderful time at our activity and can’t wait to see you on the next one 🙂

Through song and dance the local Gabi Gabi people, plus other Queensland tribes, told us about their history and culture. It was a wet day but it didn’t dampen the students spirits.

 

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.

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.
