Convo

It was very wet and cold at Lexis Noosa this afternoon so what better way to warm up than with a hot cup of coffee, play board games and practice our English!

Morning Activity

What could be better than a pancake breakfast! This morning we cooked a lovely breakfast for our students that are in the afternoon Sunset classes. After eating loads of food and drinking Australia’s famous MILO we played a couple of games of UNO and had a great laugh.

The aim of the game is to bowl a ball towards 12 pins at the other end of the alley and knock as many pins over as you can.

Everyone enjoyed the evening! Especially trying to figure out who would be crowned the champion of Lexis Noosa!

And of course everyone was a winner on the night! Congratulations to everyone for playing and trying something different!

Teen Activity Program

Take a look at what our Teenage Activity Program (TAP) students have been up to on this wonderful Thursday.

Box girls

Today the TAP students had their morning class as usual then made there way down to Franks Gym to participate in one of their workout sessions. The sessions mostly consisted of boxing activities. They had loads of fun as you can see!

Beer Tasting!

Today our afternoon activity was beer tasting. Seriously, what a great activity to get you started for the weekend !

The Lexis Noosa students tried five different Australian Craft Beers.

BEER 2: WHITE RABBIT DARK ALE

Brewed out of the old ‘Little Creatures’ Brewery that was carted across the country from Fremantle (WA), this great dark ale has a great intensity with sweet tones. Medium hops with caramel and toffee notes that lingers for considerable time.

BEER 3: JAMES SQUIRE ONE FIFTY LASHES PALE ALE

James Squire One Fifty Lashes Pale Ale is a crisp finishing, Australian style cloudy Pale Ale with malted wheat for refreshing character and a concoction of hops which create fruity aromas of passionfruit, grapefruit and citrus. (Brewed in inner-city Sydney)

BEER 4: CRICKERTERS ARMS LAGER

This easy drinking Cricketers Arms lager was specially crafted to honour friendships and celebrate achievements paying homage to a time where telling stories, cheers and post-match banter was an important tradition. Keepers Lager is crafted using sun-dried malt and infused with citrus Amarillo hops. (Brewed in Laverton, Melbourne)

BEER 5: COOPERS EXTRA STOUT

Coopers Extra Stout is a beacon for lovers of a hearty brew. With its robust flavour comprising a blend of fruit, chocolate and hop bitter notes it’s everything a stout should be. Brewed naturally using a top fermentation method, this beer’s unique rich, dark texture comes from specially roasted black malt. (South Australia)

Hope you enjoyed your afternoon activity have a wonderful weekend and see you all back at school on Monday!

Noosa vs Maroochydore Student Night

This weeks student night is something a little bit different..

Today we met the Sunshine Coast Lexis English campus at Noosa Beach for a game of soccer. The last game that was played against Maroochydore was 10 months ago and Noosa were the big winners.

What a great afternoon for everyone involved, whether you were playing the game of soccer or hanging out and spectating while you soak up the winter sun.

Thanks for coming along everyone and congratulations to Noosa Lexis School for winning, yay!

After our awesome soccer game we made our way to Halse Lodge to celebrate for student night. Cheap drinks, good vibes and English speaking!

Beach Soccer

What a beautiful afternoon to play a game of beach soccer. The sun was shining, shirts off & sandy feet. What could be better than that after a long hard day at school learning English.
