Afternoon Fun at Lexis Noosa

We have a fun filled afternoon installed for Lexis Noosa students! Today the student had 2 activities to choose from, watching Jumanji or a water colour painting lesson with Phil. Which one would you choose?

Jumanji 1

Water Colour Painting with our Cambridge teacher Phil!

One of Lexis English Noosa’s must do is to take part in Phil’s water colour painting class.

He teaches you all the techniques needed to complete a water colour painting. Step by step you will be painting a lake, mountains and storm clouds and to finish it off you will need to draw some birds, a boat and cabin in the mountains. Sign your picture and then you are finished!

In true Lexis Noosa tradition, we will wash our shirts off tonight and wear them to school tomorrow and also down to our local pub for our very own Tie Dye Party!! WooHoo!!

 

Aussie Adventure

This afternoon the Lexis Noosa students also had a Aussie Slang Workshop to help them understand our tricky accent. Our teacher Sam showed them the classic Aussie slang that can be heard around the Noosa area and also had time to show them how to use a stock whip.

Christmas Spirit @Lexis Noosa

Today Lexis Noosa had two exciting afternoon activities that the students could choose from. Either a water colour painting workshop or a Christmas movie.

Christmas Movie

The students that felt like relaxing this afternoon got to watch ‘ELF’ the Christmas movie while they enjoyed plenty of popcorn & lollies.

Some of the more art inspired students sat in on a water colour painting session with our very own amazing teacher Phil for a more hands on kind of afternoon. In the workshop the students get to learn how to water colour paint from scratch.

We hope you enjoyed your activities this afternoon and can’t wait to see you on the next one!

Boomerang Painting

Lexis Noosa students had a wonderful afternoon painting boomerangs.

The students were learning how to paint traditional and contemporary Aboriginal designs and symbols onto wooden boomerangs.

We hope you all had a wonderful time this afternoon and can’t wait to see you on the next activity!

Student Night @ KB’s

BBQ and Glow party at KB’s!

Student night started off with a great BBQ from 7pm – 9pm in the beer garden at KB’s. All of the students looked like they really enjoyed their meals along with a few beverages.

After the BBQ the students made their way into the club where things started to glow. They enjoyed many drinks while everyone started to paint each others faces with the glow paint.

At 9pm the big prize was drawn and the students were cheering while they patiently waited to see who the big winner was for the free Fraser Island Trip worth up to $500.00! After a lot of excitement the big winner was our Brazilian student Isabela. isabela winner

What a great turn out for our student night this week. The night was filled with lots of smiles, laughing and fun. Hope that you all had the best night and aren’t too tired for school today!

Tie Dye

This afternoon the Lexis Noosa student’s tried their luck at Tie Dying a white T-shirt.

The students watch a You Tube video to get the right skills and techniques to master the spiral tie dye look.

Now the Lexis Noosa students will wait 4-6 hours for the dye to sink into the white T-shirt and with any luck the shirts will come out absolutely beautiful!! Stay tune to see the unveiling of the Tie Dye shirts tomorrow and also to see the Lexis Noosa students wearing them to their very own Tie Dye Party!! 🙂

Watercolour painting with Phil!!

Some very lucky students got a step-by-step guide to painting with watercolours today by our one and only artist teacher – Phil!

A great way to learn practical uses of English – the differences between ‘above’ and ‘below’ and ‘more’ and ‘less’  were incredibly important.

Want to see how the paintings turned out?
Stay tuned for an update!
