Fresh Fruit from Queensland

The cooking class are all levels of general English and this week we visited local shops and looked at local produce.  We are so lucky to live in an area where lots of fruit and vegetables are grown locally.  The class researched seven recipes and then presented them with a description.  We all voted for our preferred options and we chose to make a Caramelised PIneapple Curry and a Strawberry Shortcake.  The strawberries were grown on a farm nearby and the pineapple was grown on a farm in Kadanga in the hinterland.

The students enjoyed giving instructions and checking information using the new vocabulary they were taught.  Best of all we loved tasting the creations at the end!

Named as two of Entertainment Weekly’s “100 Most Creative People In Entertainment”, David Collins and Shane Dundas (“the Umbies”) have appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, after James Brown at Woodstock ’99, and before the Queen.

Their unique fusion of physical and vocal comedy has taken them to stadiums supporting Robin Williams and brought comedy audiences into the Sydney Opera House. They’ve also gained a fanatical toddler and late-night, potato-chip-eating college fan base with their television series The Upside Down Show, Disney’s The Book of Once Upon A Time, The Sideshow and Maisy.

They have performed in 38 countries with five different shows and are now returning with one of their most beloved ones, ‘Speedmouse’.

Full of the stuff you love best, Speedmouse is a live action, fast paced, rewind, slow motion, frame-by-frame adventure where two men create the impossible out of a microphone and a unique physical ability that has no equal.

Speedmouse has earned a bevy of five star reviews and numerous awards including best stage production and best international show, along with a multi-platinum DVD that is sold in every corner of the world.

If you haven’t seen this show live, you should. Really.

What: Beach Yoga Class Noosa ~pay as you feel

Yoga When/Where: Saturday 27th July from 9.30am Noosa Main Beach

Description: Yoga Class by the beach this Saturday (noosa main beach a little bit further to the left past the rocks – I’ll post the exact location with pic soon).
I am a yoga teacher and I used to run donation based yoga events in Melbourne and they’ve always been so much fun.
This event is donation based which means if you are able to pay something (suggested donation 5$) that’s cool but if not that’s also cool.

For beginners and advanced, old or young. Just come along with a towel or yoga mat, water and maybe a sweater or something else in case it gets cold.
Great to start the day right, get some you time and also meet new, fun people.

It’ll be a vinyasa flow that will challenge you but reward you with relaxation afterwards 🙂 we are doing a small mediation in the end as well! 🧘🏽‍♀🧘🏽‍♂

Send me a DM if you have any questions

See you all there 🙂

Eumundi markets

On Wednesday afternoon our Pre-Intermediate classes went to the Eumundi markets to do an English activity and to see the world famous food and craft markets.

Our students needed to complete the sentence and write about their experiences that they shared with each other that day.

Pre-int 9

“Yesterday we went to Eumundi markets with the class…..”

“Yesterday we went with the school to the Eumundi markets. That weather was good and we enjoyed it. After Kana walked around the markets she decided to buy a Pitaya bowl. She enjoyed the food a lot because it was very good.  Jenny decided to buy a sugar cane juice. But she didn’t enjoy it because she thought it would be a sweet flavour but it smelt like ginger. Nerea didn’t buy anything because she has been to the markets 4 times before.

We enjoyed the live music. The boy played a Didgeridoo and it was the first time we listened to traditional aboriginal music.

The experience in Eumundi market was amazing!!”

Written by Jenny, Nerea and Kana

“Yesterday we went to Eumundi Market.

We ate hot dogs, ice-cream and slinky potatoes.

But we bought nothing more.

We saw worm juice, fake ear pods and a Macaw.

We listened to Aboriginal music.

We watched caricature, finger painting , face painting and leather work.

Eumundi Market had Brazilian Tapioca food and Japanease Okonomiyaki.

There were bargains and we saw paisley print clothes.

So we spent a good time together.”

Written by Mauricio, Zoe and Erika

 

1. The slogan of the market is make it, bake it, sew it, grow it!

2. Yesterday we saw a macaw which is a big bird at Eumundi markets.

3. Yesterday we ate potatoes and sausages at Eumundi market.

4. Yesterday we listened to Aboriginal music.

5. Yesterday we saw Jodi the face painter.

6. Yesterday we saw Alex doing finger painting.

7. Yesterday we bought ice-cream and  kebab.

8. There were koala and kangaroo products at Eumundi markets.
