Wine Tasting! January 25th

img_0907

What better way to kick of the long Australia Day weekend than with some wine tasting in the garden! It was a beautiful sunny day – the perfect backdrop to our Friday activity. We had a range of wines to choose from – the reds: Merlot & Shiraz, the whites: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc & Muscato and also a Rose.

 

img_0914.jpg

In an effort to be mindful of our environment and plastic waste, we collected all cups after the tasting, to be washed and refreshed for future tastings 😉

Everyone enjoyed the wines but the clear favourites seemed to be the Shiraz and the sweet Muscato!

 

img_0923.jpg

Saying ‘cheers’ in 4 different languages! 😀

January has been a great month for activities with a great variety of fun things like surfing, Mexican & Brazilian cooking, table tennis and of course, wine tasting. For our final week in January we have a beach picnic and jewellery making still to come! Keep an eye on our blog this week for our list of amazing activities for the month of February! 🙂

Bodyboarding! 24 January

Yesterday we enjoyed free bodyboard hire, courtesy of the wonderful team at Let’s Go Surfing!

img_0823

The students were having too much fun getting ready to go into the water that by time they’d sun-creamed up, I’d taken some photos and Lara had thrown some sand around, it was time for me to head back to school!

I managed to get one quick shot of them in the water before leaving them in the safety of the lifeguard zone. I can imagine there was just as much laughter in the water as there was out of it though 🙂
