It was very sad to say farewell to the wonderful Koko!  Many students would have had the pleasure of getting to know Koko over the past 2 years in her role as Homestay Officer. We will all miss her happy smile and kind nature.

Koko, Claire and Orla

Some of you may remember Claire, she was the previous Student Services Officer. It is a pleasure to welcome her back to the team. Claire will be taking over from Koko as the new Homestay Officer.

If you haven’t all ready met Claire, come in to reception to say hello! She is very friendly and always loves a chat 🙂

Whale Watching

Hey Guys

 

So some of the students plus myself went whale watching last Sunday…..

Upon arrival we were greeted by the lovely staff that work at the Dive Centre. Before departure our group sat down and watched the safety video,  we then put our belongings in the lockers, our cameras in the water proof case, our spray jackets on and away we went.

 

The ocean was calm and wonderful.. We saw a turtle near Julia Rocks, plenty of sea birds and then the magic started… Massive Humpback whales started spirting water out of their blow hole… We even saw a sharks fin cruising across the surface of the water, which was super cool and rare.

It was such an amazing day, the guides were amazing with such great knowledge of the sea and the wild life that inhabit it. We learnt so much about these big beautiful creatures. a massive thank you to the team at Byron Bay Dive Centre. Thank you for taking care of us, making us laugh with your funny jokes, for educating us on the sea and the animals… It truely was a wonderful experience..

Baking Extravaganza for RSPCA Cupcake Day! August 15th

Thursday afternoon we got together in the student kitchen to do some baking in preparation for the official RSPCA Cupcake Day! It has been a delicious week so far! Many students have been participating by baking all sorts of incredible home made treats to sell. All donations will go directly to supporting animals in need!

 

Thursday afternoon we made Chocolate Chip Cookies (with extra chocolate chips) and Classic Cupcakes with chocolate sauce and butter icing!!!

IMG_5499

We followed this nice and easy recipe:

Cookies

Once we had rolled the cookie mixture into balls and placed on the tray we added even more choc chips to the top before putting them in the oven to bake! 😀

IMG_5483

Whilst the cookies were in the oven we got started on making the cupcakes!

Cupcakes

We didn’t have a muffin tray to use, so they did come out of the oven a little bit square.. but they still tasted delicious so we didn’t mind. They took around 20 minutes to bake, which gave us plenty of time to prepare the butter icing and chocolate sauce for decorating. We also had sprinkles, coconut and left over chocolate chips to use!

Don’t they look cute? ❤ You can try them in today’s bake sale at break and lunch time along with many other yummy treats! Help us reach our goal of $300 by donating generously!!
