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.
Voting has now closed for our “Destination Lexis” Video competition and we would like to congratulate Lorenzo Majolo from Lexis Brisbane on receiving a massive total of 886 likes on his video to take out the prize!
After the roaring success of last month’s watercolour painting class, and numerous requests for us to hold it again, the lovely Phil will be hosting another class next week. There are limited places available so please put your name on the activity sign on sheet asap!
So many new and returning faces to Conversation Club today – we had to split the group!! While one group wrangled with Jenga and questions, the other played a very energetic game of ‘Celebrity Heads’!!
Today I sat down with student Nicolas Boulanger to find out about his time at Lexis Noosa.
Where are you from: Ermeton-Sur-Biert, in Belgium Which program are you studying: I’m in the Teen Activity Program – first I did TAP Surf, and now I’m doing TAP General. In total I am here for 6 weeks (this is week 5) – I am on summer holidays from my school in Belgium. Why did you choose to come to Australia to learn English: My friends have gone to England and America to study and I wanted to go somewhere different. And I love Australia. Why did you choose Lexis?: My parents found out about Lexis and thought it would be a good idea. It was a great idea! What do you like to do in Noosa: Hang out with my friends, go surfing and being outdoors. What is your favourite thing about Lexis Noosa?: The teachers, they are close to their students, they’re approachable. They discuss with me, how and why, not just ‘at’ me. I like their style of teaching. What do you like to do in Belgium: I’m on the National Baseball Team, so I play a lot of baseball and train a lot too. Do you have any siblings (brothers or sisters)?: I have a little sister, she is 11 years old Do you have a life motto?: If you want something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done

Chia seeds, both coconut milk and water, a little sugar and some finely diced banana and pineapple…. whisk, leave in the fridge for 10 minutes to set and – bam! Easy to make, healthy, ‘no cook’ dessert!!
(it tastes waaaaaay better than it looks, I promise!)
Even Mya – the world’s worst cook and junk food addict thinks she might make it at home!!
Many many thanks to the wonderful Isabelle for her recipe!
Conversation club is growing – and boy are we having some fun!!
Yesterday we played ‘Jenga’ (remove a block and put it on the top without tipping over the other blocks) – every block removed had a question to be answered.
Some were easy, some were more difficult….
