Nichidai Japanese Study Tour (Part 2)

The students from Nichidai Junior High School were with us for 3 long weeks of fun and games … and of course, learning English! We would like to show you the what they all got up to during the 2nd week they spent with us. It was another exciting and exhausting week, and there were SO many activities to get through. It all began with a trip to Australia Zoo. Let’s take a look …

First up on the agenda – feeding the kangaroos!

Next … the CROC show!

And finally, what trip to Aussie Zoo would be complete without holding a koala?

SURFING LESSONS AT MAROOCHYDORE BEACH

Today was an exhausting but FUN surf lesson at Maroochydore beach! First, training …

Then it was off to the water to put the training to the test. Check out how good they were!

With no energy left, they made their way back out of the water.

Thank you to the surf coaches. All of the students had a blast!

A JOURNEY THROUGH NOOSA NATIONAL PARK

The next day, our students met up with their classmates in Noosa to take on the huge task of walking all the way through Noosa National Park. It was a long trek filled with beautiful views, beautiful beaches and beautiful nature!

Perfect beaches …

I can’t believe we all made it to the top. Wow, that was hard work!

BEACH SAFETY AT NOOSA’S MAIN BEACH

Our students joined again with their classmates in Noosa to learn a few things about how to be safe at the beach. Learning about swimming between the flags and what to do in a rip, it wasn’t long before they were in the water putting these things into practice.

After the classes, it was into the water …

Next, our students got to have fun with some boards!

Finally, it was time to get out of the water and head for the ice-cream shop! Mmmmm …

A good week is a week that ends with ice-cream!

Stay tuned for the final action-packed week that our Nichidai Junior High School students spent at Lexis Maroochydore.

Until next time …

Surfing into the Weekend

Lexis Sunshine Coast students spent their afternoon learning how to surf.

Surf 2.11.18

It was the perfect afternoon to be at the beach taking in the beautiful sunshine and splashing around in the water.

2.11.18

The students had a blast. Some of them had surfed before which was great as they learnt some different moves but others were just beginners so they were super happy that they were able to stand up and have some fun.

A perfect start to the weekend if you ask me!

Weekend Activity Ideas

Whats-On-this-weekend

– Head to the Day of the Dead party this Saturday at LaCanteena. Looks like heaps of fun!

 

– An oldie but a goodie, the Fishermans Road Markets has everything you need—and plenty you don’t, but you want anyway. From fresh fruit and veg to plants and, of course, rainbow bagels, we love the no-frills vibe of this weekly gathering

– Turn your Sunday arvo into a ‘craft-a-noon’ at Your Place, with $10 pizzas. Ace!

– Head down to Pier 33 and have a cocktail with a water view. It’s expensive but the view is stunning!

Do you need a break from Maroochydore? Check out all the things you can do in Noosa this weekend!

– Pound the bush tracks on a next level hike and walk your pretty little self through the national park, from Noosa Heads to Alexandria Bay.

 – Find your early morning Zen with some Yoga on the beach. Book through: https://noosabeachyoga.com/

 – Drink your way through the best bars in the Junction, starting with cocktails at Bictro C (expensive but the view is worth it), grab a queso taco and a margarita (on tap!) at Paradise Arcade, and finish up with a cold cerveza at the spot where it all began, Village Bicycle.
