Such a fun afternoon in the beautiful park.. take a look at this video to see just how great it is: https://www.facebook.com/100015335927407/videos/pcb.10155968872071275/484334658754394/?type=3&theater&ifg=1
Lexis Noosa students have been busy job hunting lately. It only takes a little bit of hard work and determination to find a great job in Noosa! Marie-Zoe attended the Job workshop and received a lot of help from Sam with some great tips on how to get a job.
Marie-Zoe – Upper Intermediate Class
Where is your new job in Noosa?
My new job is at Grill’d Healthy Burgers along Hastings Street.
What do you do at your new job?
I am a waitress and help in food preparation.
Congratulations Marie-Zoe and great work on the new job!
Sam is the man when it comes to helping our students find a job!
We understand how important it is for many of our students to find employment as soon as possible after arrival. That is why we run our ‘Lexis WORKshop’ every Tuesday from 2pm to 3pm for all our full time students.
The first thing that Sam will do is to help you get a Tax File Number (TFN) and Australian Business Number (ABN). Then you are provided with a computer and Sam will help you write up a resume that suits the current Noosa work environment. He knows what information is needed and what is unnecessary. This workshop is personalised to your needs and requirements. You can print off your resumes once they are ready.
The next step is to get help with where to go, when to go and how to approach employers with your resume. You are then ready to set out on your job search. But not alone; if needed Sam is always happy to give a helping hand.
If your English is at a level good enough to try for a ‘front of house’ job such as table waiting or working behind a bar or in a cafe. In which case Sam will help you get your Responsible Service of Alcohol’ certificate.
So, good luck with your job hunting and give yourself a better chance by signing up for Lexis WORKshop.

This afternoon Lexis Noosa students spent some time with our local representative from the Surf Life Saving Queensland.
We hope you all learnt a lot about Australia’s beaches and what to do if you need help while swimming. Just remember no flags = no swim!!
Dominik first came to Lexis Noosa in 2017 and studied for a few months with Charmaine in General English. He was a great asset to have in the Cooking Option in the afternoon class. He shared his expert knowledge with the class and he improved his vocabulary about food. After he left he went travelling to Cairns and then south all the way to Kangaroo Island.
Photo: Dominik in Cooking Class July 2017 & a visit to Cairns in August 2017.
Dominik always had a dream to work in Europe in a group of international chefs. He worked with world renowned chef Anton Mosmann in London making and serving food at Wimbledon Tennis and at Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.
Photo: Dominik working at Wimbledon and Tottenham Hotspur in London.
Domink returned to Lexis Noosa in September 2018 to further improve his English and to travel some more around Australia. He did a road trip to Agnes Water last weekend and he has more travel dreams to fulfill.
Photo: Road trip to Agnes Water September 2018.
We loved seeing you again Dominik and wish you all the best for your future career. Hopefully we can visit your restaurant one day. Your food is always amazing!

What a beautiful afternoon to be at the beach learning how to surf!
The students picked it up so quickly and were catching the waves into shore. All I could see were smiling faces as they were so happy with themselves for picking it up so quickly.
Hope you all enjoyed your 2 hour surfing lesson. You all did great.
Goodbye to our graduating students this week at Lexis Noosa!
We have Filipe from the Intermediate B class who has studied with us for 48 Weeks, Yuya from Upper Intermediate who has studied with us for 2 weeks and Keno from Intermediate A who has studied with us for just 1 week.
Unfortunately Filipe couldn’t make graduation today as he went travelling early!
Congratulations on graduating everyone! Have a great time travelling after your course & have a safe flight home.
If you haven’t already than you must go exploring through the Noosa National Park! It’s a beautiful walk along a coastal track and stunning views like this one. Don’t forget to look up high for a cuddly koala around the Tea Tree Bay area.
Eumundi Markets are a must see tourist attraction on the Sunshine Coast! It is on Wednesday and Saturday mornings starting at 7am. Just need to catch the bus 630 from the Noosa Junction station and get off at Eumundi Station. Have fun exploring the hand made items at the markets and enjoying all the delicious food and drink stalls. Yum!!
Another must see tourist attraction would have to be the world famous Crocodile Hunter Australia Zoo at Beerwah. You can catch a greyhound bus from the Noosa Junction and it will take you there and back for the day. If you need help booking see the wonderful staff members at the Student Uni Travel store located near the school.
Another weekend idea could be to hire a kayak or stand up paddle board and explore the Noosa River. Just see the friendly staff at Boardwalk Boat Hire down near the Sofitel Jetty in Noosa Heads.
There is always plenty of music to listen to around the Noosa Heads area!
Cafe Le Monde has live music from Captain Squidlicker & The Sinking Ships starting from 8.30pm Friday night. Join your friends for some dinner and drinks and have a wonderful night out!
Aromas Noosa has the best cocktails in the town. It’s located on Hastings street it’s the perfect location to take a seat and watch the day go by.
The Driving Force Tour are gearing up for an epic night in Noosa this Friday and Cornerstone can’t wait to have them live on stage.
Nestled among fragrant gum trees, the footy grounds become a hive of activity for the Noosa Farmers Market. The markets offer plenty of different stalls including organic produce, skin care products, marinades, sauces, skin care products, freshly baked breads and cheeses.
With a weekend of spring sunshine ahead, a swim or surf at Noosa Main Beach sounds like the perfect remedy to a long working week!
We hope you have a wonderful weekend!
