This afternoon the Lexis Sunshine Coast students enjoyed a Yoga class with Madalene.

Park 10

It’s nice to have the chance to relax and recharge after a week of school just in time for the weekend.

We hope you all enjoyed your afternoon activity and can’t wait to see you on the next activity.

Farewell Friday!

We had some many things to go through at our Friday Graduation! We had to say good bye to graduating students, announce winners of the Photography Option class competition and praise our students of the week!

Today we had to say good-bye to 3 of our Lexis Sunshine Coast students.


Antonella and Rafael from our Upper Intermediate class and Julian from our IETLS class.  We hope you all had a wonderful time here at Lexis Sunshine Coast.

It’s Friday!!

That’s right it’s Friday!!! So let’s have a look at what’s happening on the Sunshine Coast this weekend.

Oktoberfest Sunshine Coast


Oktoberfest Sunshine Coast, Huge multicultural event full of German food, Beers, fun & games plus live bands, Djs and much more. Purchase your early bird ticket now before they all sell out.
Tickets · $39.90-$49.90
20th October 2018 Saturday from 11:00-21:00


Nambour Outdoor Movies – ‘Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory’Willy Wonka

Join us in Quota Park Nambour for a screening of the candyman classic flick ‘WILLY WONKA & THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY’ on Saturday 20 October. This is a new date after rain postponed the Oct 6 screening.

Come early to get yourself a spot and set up your blankets and picnics, in preparation for the screening to start around 6.30pm(ish).

Entry to the movies is by donation.

The screening is a fundraiser for Thriving Families Nambour, who will have a BBQ, snacks and cold drinks for sale on the night.

A big thanks to supporters DownTown, Carolans First National Real Estate Sunshine Coast, Sunshine Mitre 10, Nutrition Asylum, Sprinkles Nambour and Marty Hunt MP – Member for Nicklin.


The world is astounded when candy man Willy Wonka, for years a recluse, announces that five lucky people will be given a tour of his factory, shown all the secrets of his amazing candy, and one will win a lifetime supply of Wonka chocolate.

Nobody wants the prize more than young Charlie, but as his family is so poor that buying even one bar of chocolate is a treat, buying enough bars to find one of the five golden tickets is unlikely in the extreme.

But in movieland, magic can happen.

Charlie, along with four somewhat odious other children (a glutton, a spoiled peanut heiress, a gum fanatic and a television fanatic) get the chance of a lifetime and a tour of the most fantastic, eccentric factory imaginable.

We have teed up your complete mini golf, karaoke and bar experience. It’s not your regular mini golf course either, it’s the best mini golf on the Sunshine Coast, par none.

Whether you’re putting your stuff around 18 themed holes, or kicking it in a private karaoke room you’ll be able to do it while sipping the night away courtesy of our fully-equipped cocktail bar.

It’s mini golf, Sunny-side-up.

Aussie Animal Adventure

How lucky was our Australian Studies option class to have their very own Aussie Animal Adventure to the Wildlife HQ.

All of our students went on an excursion out to the Wildlife HQ park located at the world famous Big Pineapple on the Sunshine Coast.

We hope you all enjoyed your option class and learning English at Wildlife HQ.

Pancake Making

Our Lexis Sunshine Coast students spent the afternoon making pancakes at the school here!

What a delicious way to end the school day then with some pancakes!

Pancake 13

The students needed to follow the below recipe to make the pancakes and look how wonderfully delicious they turned out 🙂

Perfect Fluffy Pancakes Recipe 


  • 1½ Cups Flour

  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1 Egg
  • 1¼ Cups Milk
  • ¼ Cup Melted Butter + more for cooking
  • ½ Teaspoon Vanilla Essence


  1. In a large bowl mix together the flour, baking powder and salt with a wooden spoon. Set to the side.
  2. In a smaller bowl crack in the egg and pour in the milk.
  3. Add the melted butter and vanilla essence to the egg and milk and use a fork to mix together until everything is well combined.
  4. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the wet. Fold the batter together with a wooden spoon until there are no longer any large lumps.
  5. To cook the pancakes heat a heavy based pan like cast iron over medium low heat. When the pan is hot add a small amount of butter and ⅓ cup of the pancakes batter.
  6. Cook the pancake for 2-3 minutes each side. Repeat with remaining batter.
  7. Serve the pancakes stacked high with butter and maple syrup. Enjoy.


DELICIOUS!!! Great work everyone. I hope you all enjoyed your afternoon activity.
