Easter Coffee Club! April 16th

This week we spiced up Coffee Club with hot cross buns to celebrate Easter!

hot cross bun is a spiced sweet bun made with raisins, currants or chocolate. They are marked with a cross on the top, and traditionally enjoyed on Good Friday. The eating of hot cross buns  marks the end of Lent because they are made with dairy products which are forbidden during this period.

Talita, our birthday girl enjoyed her first ever hot cross bun! 🙂

It is safe to say everyone enjoyed the hot cross buns, especially warmed up with butter 🙂

Beer Tasting! 12th April

IMG_3371

Today we had the perfect Friday afternoon activity… BEER TASTING!

We had 6 different beers to taste…

  • Amanda Mandarin IPA
  • Fixation IPA
  • Tooheys Old Dark Ale
  • Stone & Wood Green Coast Lager
  • Koscuiszko Pale Ale
  • Stone & Wood Paccific Ale

The students had to take note of what flavours they could taste and guess where each beer was brewed. We also tried to guess what the alcohol percentage was and the price per bottle.

IMG_3367

All of the beer we sampled was from Australia! Everyone guessed mostly correct, except the Koscuiszko Pale Ale, as the label has a snowy mountain and we agreed that the name does not sound very Australian!

Byron Bay’s Stone & Wood beer was a crowd favourite – especially the Pacific Ale!

IMG_3363

Cheers everyone, thanks for a fun Friday afternoon 🙂
