Coffee Club! 18 September

Today at Coffee Club we played Jenga with questions!

Each block has a question for the player to answer before placing it back on top of the tower. It’s a great way of learning new and interesting things  about eachother!

Poker! 31 August

Last Friday I challenged Luis and Lucas to a game of Poker!

I may have told a small white lie and said it was my first time playing, which they quickly discovered not to be entirely true after I took all their chips! Sorry boys!

Aussie Food Tasting! 3 August

Today’s activity was Aussie Food Tasting!

The students were able to try Aussie favourites: Vegemite, Lamingtons, Tim Tams, Macadamia nuts, Allens red frogs, Musk sticks, Caramello koalas, Anzac biscuits and Fairy bread!

Nobody was a fan of Vegemite! It’s always great to see people’s reactions when they try it for the first time!!

The clear favourite was Tim Tams, which all the students were already very familiar with!

There were some the students hadn’t heard of, like musk sticks, but they were happy to give everything a try!

To accompany their snacks we had a selection of Kirks soft drinks (Creaming soda, Lemon and Pasito flavours) and Milo (chocolate and malt powder mixed with milk), both popular here in Australia!

Didgeridoo Lesson! 1 August

Today Craig, from Fifth Circle Music Therapy, gave some of our students a lesson on how to play the Didgeridoo!

The didgeridoo is a wind instrument developed by Indigenous Australians. It is made from limbs and tree trunks hollowed out by termites (insects). It produces a low-pitch, vibrating sound with complex rhythmic patterns and was used in tribal groups to accompany chants and songs.

Craig is a musician/performer with 20+ years experience in songwriting, live performance, recording, session percussion, teaching and mentoring – as well as a passion for assisting and supporting others through music therapy.

He showed the students how to use their mouths to make different sounds through the didgeridoo and also told them a little bit about the culture and background of didgeridoos in Australia.

This was a great authentic Australian activity for the students to enjoy and they all picked it up very quickly!
