The Trip of a Lifetime

Marco, Luca.M, Loris and Luca.B all graduated from the Cambridge CAE class in Lexis Noosa on the 15th of March 2019.

Phil - travel boys

After their studies they went on a trip of a lifetime up to Cairns. They got up to a lot on their trip but they wanted to tell us the parts that they think are definitely a MUST! The boys enjoyed the beautiful Whitsundays on a Catamaran for 3 days, went on a waterfall tour around Cairns and became mesmerised by the tropical rainforest. They dived the Great Barrier Reef and couldn’t believe the marine life & crystal clear waters. But as they travelled back to Noosa they realised that it is the place to be & described it as ‘heaven on Earth’.

We asked the boys what the funniest memories were on their trip:

“Our camper van broke down and the expression from the RACQ roadside assistance man was hilarious!”

“On the catamaran someone had to sleep under the stairs.”

“A possum peed on someone.”

“Someone swam headfirst in the coral while we were snorkeling.”

The food was of a high standard in both taste and presentation and the students worked hard to keep it all as fresh as possible. They juiced oranges to make a batch of refreshing orange juice, made fruit salad, mixed up some milkshakes and served pancakes hot off the pan.

 

Can’t wait to see what they come up with next!

Welcome to Noosa ~ Pizza Party

We hope you all had a great first day and enjoy your studies at Lexis English Noosa.

Gold class experience

This afternoon our customer service students transformed the tried and true movie activity into a delightful gold class experience. They drew upon their movie vocabularies as they visited different classes to promote the event and present the different choices of movie genres. They took into account all the elements that make a gold class cinema so special and worked hard to replicate the experience and even threw in a few lucky door prizes.

As they entered the Lexis Cinema, the audience could visit the snack bar and receive ice-cream and fresh, buttery popcorn. Of course, gold class wouldn’t be complete without replenishing the audience with more snacks part way through the film. The customer service class truly did work hard to provide Lexis Noosa with a comfortable and enjoyable afternoon at the movies.

Mount Tinbeerwah Hike

Have a great week everyone.
