Didgeridoo Lesson

Our visiting students from ECC had a didgeridoo lesson in the student area this afternoon and they were joined by some of our Saudi Arabian students who were keen to participate. Scott Estrich from BushLab Team Boosting demonstrated how to play the didgeridoo and encouraged every one to have a go. I have to say that when Ahmed had a try he sounded like a sick elephant which made his friends laugh.

Simon says…

What a great way to finish class on Friday. Students enjoyed a  variety of educational activites with fellow classmates. In these particular photos you can see students listening to and taking orders. Don’t let the photos fool you, it wasn’t all fun and games and I believe the competition was fierce.


How long have you been teaching at GV Sunshine Coast (Maroochydore) and what did you do before you worked here?

I’ve been working here for about a month now and before that I was working at GV Perth.

Teaching here keeps me in touch with an incredibly broad group of people, whom I would probably not get a chance to meet in another job.

Playing semi-professional basketball for Perth.
