A Big Thank You from Fiji!

Do you remember the bakesale fundraiser that Caroline from Student Uni Travel organised together with teachers from Lexis Noosa? The Australian dollars raised translated into $1000 Fijian and were used to purchase hardware and school supplies for families who were hard hit by the recent cyclone.

Thank you to everyone involved!

Having a travel agency on site means that our students can book their weekend excursions and end of course travel without missing that early morning surf or afternoon swim. BWT are experts at finding the right package and will always discount for Lexis English students without compromising quality. No wonder it is all smiles.

Whitsundays Sailing adventure: a great experience!

Lexis English students – Valentina, Lavinia and Paola from Italy, tell us about their amazing sailing experience in the Whitsundays 🙂

“We sailed for 3 days on a beautiful catamaran called ‘Wings’. We met people from all over the world and we had a lot of fun with them. We went snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef, we saw lots of sea life…whales, turtles, sharks and manta rays, but the most exciting adventure was the trip to Whitehaven Beach. The sand is so white almost like snow and the water is crystal blue and beautiful landscapes; the best place we have ever been!!!! We had a great time and we won’t forget it! Thanks to the girls at Student Uni Travel who organised it for us :)”
