Here are the exciting activities that will be done this week at Lexis Noosa.
Looking for a job and need some help writing your resume? Than look no further, our job workshop on Tuesday @ 2.00 pm is the activity that you need to do! We give you helpful hits, correct your resume and even print the finished product for you.
This week on Wednesday we will have a ping pong tournament to find out who the champion of July will be at Lexis Noosa. Sign up to play in the tournament or just come along to watch the match.
This week, Lexis Noosa students will be having a pizza & movie night at the school! We are choosing between 21 Jump Street, Fast and the Furious or That Awkward Moment.
Had a big week at school practicing and learning English? Come to Yoga in the park to stretch, release stress and feel relaxed moving into the weekend.
On Friday Lexis Noosa students walked along the beautiful Noosa National Park as our afternoon activity. The ‘Coastal Track’ passes over several headlands and provides many spectacular coastal views. We were lucky enough to spot a Green Tree Snake, Blue-tongue Lizard, Turtles and a stingray!
Here in Noosa we have many amazing students who find a way to balance studying English, working and enjoying the beautiful beaches. Mireia is one of these students and she has been generous enough to share her experience with us.
Mireia has been in Noosa since December 2016 and she works at the Boathouse, a popular riverside restaurant on the shores of Noosa River. She has been working there as a dish-washer since January and she likes it because she has the opportunity to meet locals and because they sometimes give her food.
She works about 20 hours a week and feels that the job has helped to improve her English because she has to speak English in the kitchen with the other staff. If you’re looking for a job in Noosa she recommends writing a really good description of your skills. She also believes that local employers are looking for hardworking and flexible employees.
She sent out many resumes and after a month of looking got the job through a friend who was working there. She feels that working as a dishwasher was much more difficult than what she expected beforehand.
What are the class doing? It’s okay the crocodile is safe and was cubed and put in a delicious marinade!
We designed three different marinades from fresh ingredients and left the crocodile to tenderise overnight. We had the stir-fried cubed meat as a kebab with healthy fresh vegetables and rice. Our chef Karina showed us how to present the rice in an attractive way using a measuring cup to form half a sphere. This is why she is the professional! Fabulous Karina!
Students thought that the crocodile meat was similar in taste to chicken but had the texture of fish. It is a delicacy in Australia and all the students had a try! It’s good to try new foods when we visit a different country!
What could possibly be better than a hip hop class on a Friday afternoon to get you ready for the weekend?
Our incredibly talented student’s Wakana and Asako made up a dance for Lexis Noosa students to learn as our Friday afternoon activity. Thanks for taking the time to make up the dance and teach it to us. You girls have some serious dance moves. Thank you to everyone that came along and I hope to see some of the dance moves at our next student night!
Head over to the Lexis Noosa Facebook to see the dance!
