Kayaking

Friday afternoon 30 lucky Lexis Noosa students Kayaked their way into the long weekend! It was such a perfect activity to do on a beautiful sunny afternoon. The students got the hang of it after a while but it was hilarious to hear them all complaining because of how sore their arms were all afternoon!

Meet the Neighbours

The writing class did their closing task using many of the skills they had practised over the 3 weeks of the option class.  The task was to find a neighbour close to Lexis and to write questions and interview them about their life in Noosa.

Students composed questions based on an article we read in Backstory Magazine.  Each students composed a question and we all agreed on five common questions to ask our neighbours.  We visited our neighbours and recorded the interview.  We then transcribed the interview.

Our Excellent Eumundi Excursion

img_2998On Wednesday, 16th November 2016 we made a trip with our Lexis Upper Intermediate A class to Eumundi Market. We caught the bus at 8.55am in Noosa Junction with our teacher Olly. There we made some teams and he gave us some instructions.

Our team had to do an interview with a seller from the Market. While we were walking Kim disappeared and we found him in a clothes’ store.

img_3001That is how we met Scott, a 55 old Australian who lives in Coolum. He has been working there for 25 years every Wednesday and Saturday with his wife. He also has another store in Caloundra, where he works every Friday. He was very friendly and open-minded and he told us he really likes working at Eumundi Market because he can meet a lot of people and interact with them. He said we were good guys and he enjoyed talking to us. 

We had an amazing time there and saw many different and interesting things. We saw a lot of hand-made things, artistic people and all different kinds of international food.  We met a lot of warm-hearted people who gave us the opportunity to speak with them.

We hope you enjoy our text a lot. 

See you on the next trip!!!!!

Eumundi Market: Then and Now

The first Eumundi Market took place on Saturday 24th of March in 1979. The whole market included 3 stalls and 8 people went to the market. Originally the market was created for the local artists who wanted to sell their handmade products. The original Eumundi Market was expanded in 2002 to include a Wednesday market. In 2009 the stalls were expanded to more than 600. Today approximately 1.6 million people visit the market each year. One of the first sellers was Christa Barton. She still produces beautiful pottery but she left the market in 2004 and moved to Tasmania. Eumundi rocks!

What Friendship Means to Meshal

A free writing task was given to students in the SANG workshop. Each student had absolute free reign on what they could write about. This piece of writing by Meshal who is in Pre-Intermediate was incredibly touching and heartfelt. I think studying abroad sometimes makes you appreciate and reflect on what friendship is and how important it is in our lives both when we are at home in our countries as well as whilst being a student or travelling internationally. I hope you enjoy reading this as much as we did. May you always be surrounded by good friends. And thank you for sharing your thoughts Meshal.

“Friendship is of small worth in its size but big in its meaning. It’s a great relationship between two people. It’s one soul in two bodies. One can’t live alone in this life, we need a friend who supports and helps us. But what is a real friend? A real friend is the one who is with you when you are alone. They are the one who accepts your apologies and forgives you. They are the one you can contact at 4am and they will be interested in what you have to say. They help you to be a better person and feel happy for you when you are successful. Therefore you must select your friends carefully in order to live happily all your life. Finally, we can’t pick our family but we can pick our friends. Our friends reflect the choices we make in life.”
