Valentine’s Day Afternoon Tea

This week our Kindai students were treated to a very special Valentine’s Day event. Maria’s wonderful customer service class prepared a lovely high tea for the teens. The afternoon tea was complete with beautifully made cucumber sandwiches, scones, lamingtons, hot and iced tea.

The front of house staff were in charge of greeting our Kindai students and taking them to their table.

The teens were waited upon by the lovely waiters and waitresses who provided them with high-quality service.

The students were encouraged to relax and enjoy the many games laid out on the tables as their drink orders were taken. Delicious refreshments were soon made and brought out.

Serving drinks

 

No high tea would be complete without a few sweet treats like Aussie lamingtons and jam on scones.

 

The customer service students even went as far as to organise a lucky door prize. Four lucky boys were the winners of some beautifully packaged Valentine’s chocolate which they were kind enough to share with the rest of their table.

All in all the event was extremely successful and the feedback was fantastic. It’s sure to be a Valentine’s Day the Kindai students will never forget.

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.

Photo Scavenger Hunt

Today our Kindai students raced around Noosa Junction to take photos and check off all the crazy things on their scavenger hunt list. Hanging upside down, posing as supermodels, hopping like kangaroos, turkeys on a flying carpet, a man wearing an orange shirt, climbing a tree like a koala, and cute puppies were just some of the fantastic photos the students took in an effort to win the ultimate prize of Tim-tams and Koalas.

All the students had a wonderful time snapping photos around Noosa on this beautiful, sunny day. Although the competition was tight, team “Kangaroo” won by just one photo.

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!!

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!

Balloon Animal Workshop

This afternoon Lexis Noosa students enjoyed a Balloon Animal Workshop run by one of our very own students Junki from the Intermediate A class.

balloon 1

Junki runs Balloon animal workshops for his work back in Japan.

Firstly Junki talked the students through how to make the balloon animals and the history behind them. Then he moved onto the workshop where he demonstrated a step by step tutorial on how to make them.

Hope everyone enjoyed their afternoon. There were definitely many laughs coming from the group this afternoon!

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.

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.
