We hope you have a wonderful day & enjoy your time with us on the beautiful Sunshine Coast ☀️ Mauro is from Madrid, Spain where he worked as a Refrigeration & Electric Technician. He is studying English because he believes it is very important for business & travel. He chose Australia because people he knows have recommended it and he likes to find new adventures/experiences and Australia is very beautiful & different from his country.
Monica is also from Madrid, Spain where she works as a Kindergarten and Primary School Teacher. She is studying English to get a better job in Spain because all schools are becoming bilingual. She chose to come to Australia because she had a friend here who helped them make a decision – everybody speaks very highly about “The Australian Life”.
Takeshi is from Tokyo, Japan where he is a Chef. He is here because he needs an IELTS score of 5.5 to go to TAFE. He chose Australia because he believes it is the best place for him to learn English.
Thi Thu Hoai is from Vietnam, where she is a High School Student. She is here to experience Australia’s education and improve her English to make it easier for her to communicate & study.
Trinidad is from Santiago, Chile where she was a High School Student. She is here because she wants to perfect her English and chose Australia because it is a beautiful country and she loves the beach.
Antonia is also from Santiago, Chile where she was a High School Student. She is here to improve her English & came here to Australia with her friend.
Elly is from Seoul, South Korea where she works at a Trading Company. She is here in Australia studying English because she believes there are good English programs here and the weather is nice.
By this stage, everyone has got to know each other and have already developed lasting friendships. They have even got to know some of the past HSPers as they have come in to visit, an they have certainly learned a lot about life in high school from them! Join us as we take a look at what has been going on lately in the HSP classroom and beyond …
We have had our fair share of class games and activities all aimed at teaching and practising a different skills and knowledge areas. Take a look at a few of the fun times we’ve had warming up to a lesson, engrossed in a game!
A BIG welcome to Sohee (pictured above) who joined us from South Korea last week. She has settled in very quickly and is a valuable part of our HSP family!
In this last week, we were very lucky to have a surprise visit from 3 of HSP’s past students who are currently enjoying their school holidays. Naturally, we brought them into the classroom and interrogated them (in a nice way) about their experiences in their Australian high schools. This interview lasted for quite a while as our current students were so eager to clean as much information from them as they could! A successful lesson which helped to open our students minds to their future in high school. A BIG thank you to Ed, Pris and Alice for taking the time to come in and talk to the new generation of students!
As part of our science unit, we got the chance to design, hypothesise and create several paper challenges where small groups were given a piece of paper and asked to complete a challenge. These challenges were to support the weight of a heavy dictionary, and to make a bridge between a gap in the tables that will support the weight of a bunch of coins. Well, we definitely have a bunch of ‘out of the box’ thinkers in the class! Here are the results …
All teams did very well … although, I think they may have moved their desks closer together when I wasn’t looking!
Now for the 2nd challenge – to hold up a heavy dictionary with a single sheet of paper …
With a new group of students comes a new lot of sporting activities for Friday afternoons! There’s nothing like letting off a bit of steam on a Friday, and the students have been having a great time.
A great game of soccer. Wow, what a game it was … those boys are quick! Meanwhile, the girls decided to chill out a bit with a game of handball and other (not so rough) games.
We have a lot lined up for the next several weeks, I can’t wait to share it with you all. Stay tuned for our next update from HSP, Sunshine Coast!
Until next time …
