Happy Hour with Happy Travels! 14 November

On Wednesday the awesome team at Happy Travels treated our students to a Happy Hour, which included free pizza, punch and prizes!

International DJ Mr Ha.Yes provided the music while the students enjoyed their free lunch and tropical punch.

Lexis’ Happy Travels specialist Sarah (who you can find in the student lounge on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays between 12pm and 3pm) collected everyone’s names to enter them into a draw for a Great Barrier Reef Trip!!

Well done to Camila Romero Gonzalez for winning this amazing prize!!

Uno is normally the game of choice, but in recent weeks we’ve also enjoyed some jenga with questions and general chit chat.

It’s always a fun-filled hour, especially when Eric is there providing entertainment with his singing and silliness!

One week soon we’ll be switching the coffee for ice cream; more of a treat for this beautiful warm summer weather!

Coffee Club is every Tuesday at 11.30am and 2pm 🙂 Hope to see you there!
