Job Advice

Sam is the man when it comes to helping our students find a job!

sam 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.

Sam job 1

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.

History of Booing Gari by Gwendoline

Introducing the history of Booin Gari by Gwendoline (IELTS class)

Photo 1

The Booin Gari festival gathers aboriginal people and Torres Strait islanders to celebrate and share the indigenous culture and to build positive relationships. The term ‘Booin Gari’ means ‘Come this way’. This festival was created in 2008 in Tewantin, the same year as the ‘Sorry speech’ by Kevin Rudd the Prime Minister.

Photo 3

This year, 2018, the Gubbi Gubbi people hosted the festival in. Noosaville. The Gubbi Gubbi people is one Australian Aboriginal group using the Murri language. The word ‘Gubbi’ comes from ‘Kabi’ which means ‘no’ in Murri language.

Photo 2

Even if there are subdivisions in the Gubbi Gubbi people (there are many clans like Giga Bora or Kaiya Bora), Booin Gari was hosted by all the Gubbi Gubbi people.

Thanks to their creative events and performances, they succeeded in sharing a piece of their culture with the Lexis students and festival visitors.
