Lisa Reitgruber was Lexis Noosa’s winner of the Cancer Council morning tea cooking competition! Thank you so much for participating and making the best little pizza rolls we have ever eaten. Enjoy your prize ;P
Today we had a visit from Australia Ryugaku Centre which is an agency that specialise with our Japanese students. We hope you enjoyed your tour around Lexis Noosa and all our information given by one of our wonderful Academic Support team members, Tanya!
On Friday morning we held an Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea event, and the turnout was incredible. In fifteen busy minutes, we raised $504 for the charity Cancer Council, where all the proceeds from the sale will be donated to cancer awareness and research. Many students bought food as a class or brought in home cooked treats. We had a large range of foods varying from a Naked Cake to brownies and cheesecake. With sales happening left and right the food was gone in what seemed like only minutes.
Thank you to our wonderful work experience students Lauren and Sophie who organised the whole event and made it happen!

This week our Wednesday afternoon activity was Yoga at Pinaroo Park. It’s always such a great activity for the students to do after a long day of concentration in the classroom.
Yoga, apart from being a super fun activity also has many other benefits. Yoga can increase energy & concentration levels, be a great form of stress relief and best of all is a form of physical activity.
Hope everyone enjoyed their relaxing afternoon!
Our Military National Guard Officers Abdullah, Abdulrahman & Bader have graduated today! We are all so proud of you guys. Enjoy seeing your family back in Saudi & best of luck at Flight school!
What better place to do your work experience than in our amazing, vibrant, exciting Lexis English Noosa campus, where the fun never stops! Today we were lucky enough to meet Lauren Galagher and Sophie Summers from St Teresa’s Catholic College. Both girls had a taste of what it’s like to be one of our students for the day. Their itinerary for the day consisted of:
- Taking the level entry English exam
- Attending class
- Lunch (best part of the day and can’t have them go hungry!)
- Conversation Club
Both students are interested in finding out what techniques are used in teaching students from different countries as some day they hope to become teachers. Both Lauren and Sophie are learning French at their school and Lauren is also learning to speak Spanish outside of school.
Hope you both enjoyed you day and can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings!
