Merry Christmas To All Students – Past and Present

Australian Santa Riding a Kangaroo It’s been a great year!  So, what better way to end it than having a test in the morning, receiving Secret Santa gifts, singing Christmas tunes, sitting on Santa’s lap and having lunch together? A special thank you to Santa who did a great job giving out the presents. GV Santa Awards were presented to: Manuel (Elementary) for being the most punctual person with a hangover, Harold (Pre-Intermediate A) for turning sleeping in class into an ART FORM, Adriana (Intermediate A) for being the most determined student to get to Maroochydore, Memo (Upper Intermediate) for being the most ambidextrous student and to Sarah (Advanced) for being an eternal optimist and for always having a smile. Have a wonderful and safe Christmas everyone and see you next year. Roll on 2011.

(P.S. Merry Christmas Maddy, Louanne, Nathalie, Adi, Warren, Jenny and Becky- we missed you. See you next year!)
