Boomerang painting! January 10th

Last week, we gathered outside the student lounge for our Thursday activity – Boomerang painting! 🙂

img_0251

The sun was shining here in Byron Bay so we set up the tables outside, making sure to cover everything in newspaper as we were using acrylic paint. I had some painted boomerangs to show as examples, as well as some information about the meaning behind all the symbols – an interesting insight into the traditional aboriginal style, used to tell stories through the artists paintings.

Everyone found the painting to be a very relaxing activity! Check them out as they worked on their masterpieces 😀

Brazilian Cooking – Brigadeiros! 3 January

Last week, for our Brazilian Cooking activity, we made Brazilian dessert favourite  brigadeiros ❤

img_0067

I printed out the below (very simple) recipe, but Brazilian student Lucas told me it wouldn’t be needed as he threw everything in the saucepan, using his judgement over measurements!

Recipe: Mix 1 tin of sweetened condensed milk, 15 grams of butter and 3 table spoons of cocoa powder over medium heat until thickened. Let it cool then roll into balls!

When rolling the mixture into balls it’s advised to put butter on your hands first to stop it sticking; this worked for everyone but me, who ended up in a real mess!

It was only a few of us making them but once we’d then covered them in chocolate sprinkles and nuts more students suddenly appeared to help us eat them!

Sausage Sizzle! 7 January

On Monday we had a Sausage Sizzle to welcome all our new students! It was held in front of school during the lunch break so all of our students could come along and get to know one another.

Whilst it was the first cloudy day we’ve had in a while it was still lovely and warm so the students were able to enjoy their free lunch outside on the grass.

My trusty assistant, student Eric, jumped in to help as the queue for sausages continued to get larger. Within the hour we got everyone fed and back in their classes with full bellies!
