Candle Making

This afternoon our Lexis Noosa students were able to have a go at making their own candles.

Candle 2

We first watched a video on YouTube for the instructions on how to start making our candles.

We melted the wax carefully and added our colour and oils for fragrance. What scent would you choose? Vanilla, lavender, rose or jasmine?

After everything was added to the melted wax we carefully pour into the jar to create our perfect candles!

Gold class experience

This afternoon our customer service students transformed the tried and true movie activity into a delightful gold class experience. They drew upon their movie vocabularies as they visited different classes to promote the event and present the different choices of movie genres. They took into account all the elements that make a gold class cinema so special and worked hard to replicate the experience and even threw in a few lucky door prizes.

As they entered the Lexis Cinema, the audience could visit the snack bar and receive ice-cream and fresh, buttery popcorn. Of course, gold class wouldn’t be complete without replenishing the audience with more snacks part way through the film. The customer service class truly did work hard to provide Lexis Noosa with a comfortable and enjoyable afternoon at the movies.

Wine Tasting with Customer Service Class

54257049_1175878862601808_2555966717528375296_n

It’s not every day that you have the privilege to indulge in some fine Australian wine at your English College. Not only that but to also be served by your fellow students who are practicing their skills ready for the ready Hospitality world.

Well, that is exactly what happened this afternoon at Lexis Noosa.

The students were treated to an afternoon of laughter, entertainment and of course wine, all served by the Customer Service Class run by Maria.

If you had any questions about the wine, the students were ready to answer with a wealth of knowledge.

Now, having worked in the Hospitality industry myself for a number of years, I am happy to report that the service at Lexis Noosa from the Customer Service Students is phenomenal.

Astronomical even.

High Tea

The customer service students were back at it again today with a lovely high tea. The treats provided were truly incredible including delicately made teacup biscuits, delicious chicken wraps, and a very cute watermelon echidna. The faces of the customers lit up every time a new plate was brought out.

The customer service students improve in confidence and ability every time they host an activity. They work incredibly hard to use the workplace vocabulary, create an enjoyable atmosphere, and it’s clear the customers appreciate the effort put into the afternoon. They even made conversation cards!

We’re all looking forward to their candle making class next week!

Beer Tasting

Our customer service students were hard at work again this afternoon serving up a variety of Australian craft beers. The students had a quick lesson on the language needed to discuss different the different appearances, aromas, tastes, and palates. They quickly dived into their work preparing the tables with food platters, activities and surveys. The customers were greeted by the friendly front of house staff as they arrived and shown to their designated tables.

As the samples were poured, the customers were told some information about each of the beers which were further accompanied by a tasting menu prepared by the customer service students.

 

We even had our own security guard who took care of all the intruders.

The customers had a lot of fun tasting the Australian beers and had many different opinions on each one. Well done to all involved. Can’t wait for the wine tasting!

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.

Front of house staff

 

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.

 

20190214_141037

 

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.
