Did you know that FRASER ISLAND is only 2 hours from Noosa?
Global Village runs 3-day self-drive camping trips to the island EVERY FRIDAY.
Experience the largest and most beautiful sand island in the world. Drive along 75-mile beach, swim in stunning Lake McKenzie, spot whales, dingoes and manta rays. Spend the first night at a beach campsite, and the second night at an Aboriginal campsite with a campfire, hot showers and didgeridoo lessons.
Cars seat 8 people, and need at least one driver, who must be over 21. Only $199 per person, including all camping and cooking equipment, fees, permits and ferry tickets.
Meet people and have fun on Fraser. Just see Loris for more information and to make your booking.
What a wonderful demonstration of cooking skills by Cindy, Brij and Julio. They were brilliant and turned out superb dishes while the rest of the students cheered them on and helped themselves to the sausages at lunch.
The judges had a hard time choosing the winner, Julio, who prepared a four course meal. Congratulations Julio! Brij and Cindy, well done. Julio was reluctant to accept his prize and has asked to share it with his fellow competitors. What a guy!
Inspired by the students at our school in Brisbane, our Upper Intermediate students decided to make short films.
If you watch the movies, you will have to agree they have all done such a wonderful job, considering that they only had one week to think, plan, write, direct and edit their films! We hope these films will be the first of many. The genre they selected this time was “murder”. Who knows what’s next! A special thanks to Becky who gave us the idea, Nathalie, who worked so hard with her class and of course the students at GV Brisbane.
Last week our boys played soccer against the team at Sunshine Coast University but they were defeated. It was a tough match but our boys did their best. Not liking the end result, they will be challenging the University team again next week.
Michele and Leonardo started studying at GV Caloundra in November 2008 and finished in April 2009.
They came as friends but soon love blossomed.
They had a great time studying and travelling to various parts of Australia and just before they left, they had a quick look at New Zealand which they really enjoyed.
Michele told me the only down side to her stay here was having to leave a lot of her clothes behind at the airport because she had shopped too much!
They are currently in Brazil and have managed to find jobs there.
Michele is working for Johnson and Johnson; she was thrilled to get her job because she had her interview in English.
Leonardo has found a job as a Manager and according to him, he is “working like a dog!”
Well done guys and keep in touch.
