Halloween BBQ!!!

This afternoon we had a fun-filled BBQ for Halloween!

Teacher Paul cooked the sausages while the students relaxed, enjoyed the food and drink, played soccer and volleyball and competed in the Halloween activities.

We had two competitions… the first was apple-bobbing which was hilarious to watch! Many students ended up very wet! The first team to bob all of their apples won Tim Tams, chocolate and lollies.

Later we had a face painting competition which was won by Illi and Andrea’s team, well done guys!

Have a great Halloween weekend everyone 🙂

HAVE A HAPPY HALLOWEEN WEEKEND! 🙂

November Activites!

November Activities

It’s almost November, which means it’s time to reveal our new activity calendar!

We have plenty of fun and exciting activities to look forward to in November, with many prizes to be won…

There’ll be creative activities like Italian Cooking and Boomerang Painting as well as sports like Soccer, Volleyball, Cricket, Table Tennis, Yoga and Skateboarding.

We’ll have movies on Thursdays as well as new Discussion Workshops to help you practice and improve your speaking and discussion skills.

Of course, we will continue to run the fortnightly Coffee Lounge so you can mix with students from other classes, and the fortnightly Job Club for those who need help finding and applying for jobs.

At the end of November we’ll have a big BBQ to celebrate the end of the Cambridge course.

Remember, all of these activities are free, fun and a fantastic chance to learn new skills and meet other students 🙂

Table Tennis Tournament!

There was a great turnout for our Table Tennis Tournament this afternoon! The students were keen to show off their skills…12194277_10156136766240612_289344757_o

Over 35 students came to watch the 16 competitors battle it out for the beer prize…
