How exciting is it when everything starts getting busy again ! The school is growing bigger and better every week as the year progresses. So Lexis Noosa has given the opportunity for our afternoon students to participate in our morning activities.
Today the students tried Stand Up Paddle Boarding for the first time which is a great activity to get you motivated for classes later on in the day. This activity is a perfect mix of energy and relaxation as they paddle down & around the Noosa River.
Here are the exciting activities that will be done this week at Lexis Noosa.
Looking for a job and need some help writing your resume? Than look no further, our job workshop on Tuesday @ 2.00 pm is the activity that you need to do! We give you helpful hits, correct your resume and even print the finished product for you.
This week on Wednesday we will have a game of beach soccer. Come along to play or just watch the game while you soak up the Australian winter sun. If you are brave enough you might even head down to the water to dip your toes in or jump in for a swim. Sign up at reception if you want to participate!
This week, Lexis Noosa students will be meeting up at Moto Bar for some dinner and drinks! Moto provides an awesome atmosphere, cheap food and some drinks that are so nice they go down a little too quick! Sign up at reception so we know how many table to book.
What could be any better of a Friday afternoon then tasting some amazing Aussie food. Look out on the activity notice board for all of the food that we will be trying out! I’m sure i’ll see smiling faces until the Vegemite makes its way out onto the table.
On Friday Lexis Noosa students walked along the beautiful Noosa National Park as our afternoon activity. The ‘Coastal Track’ passes over several headlands and provides many spectacular coastal views. We were lucky enough to spot a Green Tree Snake, Blue-tongue Lizard, Turtles and a stingray!
Such an exciting time when former students come back to visit Noosa Lexis Staff! Beautiful Joyce returned to visit us after 13 years. She says that Noosa hasn’t changed a bit & shared a few laughs with Director of Studies Becky about her memories at Lexis Noosa. Now Joyce has brought her son to study at Sunshine Beach Primary School. Exciting times ahead for their adventures in Australia.
Here in Noosa we have many amazing students who find a way to balance studying English, working and enjoying the beautiful beaches. Tony is one of these students and he has been generous enough to share his experience with us.
Tony has been in Noosa since March 2017 and on Saturdays he works at the Eumundi Markets, a popular tourist market in the small town of Eumundi. On Sundays he works at the local Noosa Farmers Market in Noosaville where he is responsible for cooking the dumplings and also selling them to customers. He has been working there for one month and likes it because it gives him the opportunity to meet locals and practise his English with them.
If you’re looking for a job in Noosa he recommends writing a really good description of your skills. He recommends asking your friends if they know of any jobs in the area and to also look on a website called Gum Tree. He also believes that local employers are looking for students with work experience who learn really quickly and are hard working.
Tony sent out many resumes and after two months of looking and hard work he found the job that was right for him. He feels that working your first week with the company is very important as they will be watching and judging if you are taking the job seriously as well as making sure that you are the right fit for their company.
