Noosa – Graduation Day – 30th September

It’s Friday, which means it’s graduation day where we say goodbye to our graduating students. 

Another week has gone by and we are sadly saying goodbye to 6 of our lovely students, Manuel, Facundo, Henry, Nicole, Nicolai and Christine. 

Firstly, we said goodbye to Manuel from the FCE Cambridge class on Thursday. Manuel has been one of our well-known students around the campus and will be missed by everyone. His class organised a suprise farewell lunch to say goodbye.

We had Facundo from the Pre-Intermediate class also leaving us this week. He will be remembered for his sense of humor and his talkative nature. Facundo will be working in Pamona for a few weeks before flying back home to Chile. 

Henry and Nicole from the Intermediate class are also leaving us this week. Henry is Transferring to Maroochydore to start his IELTS course and Nicole is going on a holiday before transferring to Byron Bay to continue her studies. 

From the Upper Intermediate class, we said goodbye to Nicolai and Christine. Christine is also transferring to Maroochydore to start her IELTS course and Nicolai will return home after a short time studying with us. His teacher Sandra says that both of these students have been a pleasure to have in class and will be missed. 

We are going to miss all of our students that are leaving us this week, we have loved watching their English improve each week throughout their studies.

Noosa – Fascinating snake and reptile show – 28th September

This week our students attended a snake and reptile show!

Many people fear Australia due to some of the animals that we have living in our country. Well, this week the students had the opportunity to face their fears and learn that actually, some are not as scary or as deadly as most first think. 

This week our teachers gave the students a little break from class to go and see a snake and reptiles show that was happening close to our campus. During the presentation, the students were shown three different species of snakes and three different species of lizards. A fun fact we learnt at the show was that only 3-4 people die from a snake bite per year! A lot less than most people expect. 

The students learnt so much about some of our Australian snake and lizards while being able to have a close look at them too. After the presentation, the students had the opportunity to hold a snake! Some of the students were brave, others watched them be brave from afar. 
None of these snakes were dangerous and all of the species that were shown are common Australian pets.

Some of the reactions and facial expressions were priceless!

The students loved the seeing the show and getting up close and personal with the animals (well most of them). It was a perfect way to introduce them to some of the native Australian animals and add to their studying experience in Australia!

Noosa student nights are back! 

A couple of weeks ago, the students had their first student night since the campus reopened again. Student nights are a perfect opportunity for the students to unwind from their studies and just have fun! It really is a big part of the whole study and travel experience! 

The students enjoyed cheap drinks, cheap food and karaoke which happens every Thursday night at a local bar that is just around the corner from the campus. 

The bar is also a hostel so the students have the opportunity to meet other people that have chosen Noosa as a travel destination!

Noosa – Friday Fun Day Scavenger Hunt – 9th September

Today Teacher Rob took the Pre-Intermediate and Intermediate students on a scavenger hunt. 

The students were asked to get into teams and were given a list of tasks to complete within a time limit. Each task was worth a different amount of points depending on the difficulty of the task and they were required to get photo proof of each task that was completed. The team with the most points when the time was up, won the challenge. 

The students had so much fun completing all the tasks and it was a great opportunity to explore the town at the same time. 
We saw a lot of smiles and laughing from the students during the scavenger hunt! 

The end results were tied and so the final winner came down to a technical decision, it was very close! Teacher Rob was feeling generous so each of the teams received a packet of Tim Tam’s for their efforts, which are a famous Australian sweet snack, and the winning team won TWO packets! 

Overall, it was a very fun ending to the week and the students had a blast!

Noosa – Chocolate Tasting – 2nd September

On Friday for our afternoon activity, the students did chocolate tasting with Kira, the Student Services Coordinator.

There were 6 varieties of chocolate, each with different flavours and made in different countries. The students tasted: Nestle Rolo, Pico Salted Caramel, Whittakers Caramel Blondie, Sunburnt Series Orange, Cadbury Fruit & Nut and Coles Belgian Dark Chocolate. 

The students observed the taste, texture, and smell and gave an overall enjoyment rating out of 10 for each chocolate variety. 

The students had very different opinions about each chocolate variety. Some of the students preferred the sweeter varieties and the others not so much. We saw some very funny facial expressions at times while trying the chocolate. 

A few of the students are vegan and so a couple of vegan chocolate varieties were included also. 

Overall, each student had their own favourite, however Australian chocolate is very different to what they’re used to!
