October 2017 Events and Activities

 

Cooking lessons with our HSP and YL classes

Our HSP and YL classes enjoyed their cooking lessons this week at our Ashmore Campus with Chef Tom and Chef Geoff and some of our commercial cookery students!

Lessons outside the classroom allow our students to practice their English in a different environment, and both our HSP and YL students enjoy having fun in the kitchen and making delicious treats to sample afterwards!

The word of the day was DELICIOUS!

Fun with our Brisbane students!

It may have been raining but a little rain wasn't going to stop our Pre Intermediate PM class who headed to the markets to stock up on ingredients to make delicious and nutritious smoothies!

Activities like these are great for practicing English in real-life situations outside of the classroom.

...and in light of the smoothies the class created, I think we can safely say that the English word of the day was DELICIOUS!

 

 

Visit to the Queensland Museum

Phil’s Intermediate PM class and AnneMie's Upper Intermediate Pm class went to visit the Queensland Museum in beautiful Southbank!

Everybody had a fabulous time! One of our students, Silvia, even got dressed up as a gladiator! Many of the students loved the museum so much they even went back on the weekend to take their friends and partners!

A visit to the ice-cream truck was a delicious treat for everybody too!

Shared lunch for Monica's class!

Monica's class spent time cooking shabu shabu ...a bring and share lunch. It was such a wonderful lunch where the class laughed and talked and learnt so much about different cultural eating styles!

These sort of activities are fantastic to allow our students to experience other cultures and socialise amongst each other, whilst still learning English outside of the classroom.

NAIDOC Week

NAIDOC Week is held in the first full week of July. It is a time to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements and is an opportunity to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our country and our society.

Our campuses at Imagine recognised NAIDOC Week with in class activities and visits to the Arts Centre to take in the exhibitions there.

The Star Festival (Tanabata)

Tanabata celebrates the meeting of the deities Orihime and Hikoboshi (represented by the stars Vega and Altair respectively). According to legend, the Milky Way separates these lovers, and they are allowed to meet only once a year on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month.

In Japan people generally celebrate this day by writing wishes, sometimes in the form of poetry, on tanzaku (small pieces of paper), and hanging them on bamboo, sometimes with other decorations. The bamboo and decorations are often set afloat on a river or burned after the festival, around midnight or the next day.

Thank you to our Nagoya students at both our Brisbane and our Southport Central Campuses, for sharing this wonderful festival with us!

The International Day of Yoga

The word “yoga” means to join or unite, the union of body and consciousness, and on Wednesday 21st of June, in celebration of The International Day of Yoga, over 200 of our Southport Central students joined together to practice yoga in the park across from our Southport Central campus.

The free lessons were taught by Imagine student and G23 Fitness yoga instructor Sandra Wesslen and were an amazing way for our student body to get together in celebration of this wonderful day.
