Oz Studies

This week in the Australian Studies class, Mick took his students to Thursday Plantation.  Students were shown how Tea Tree is extracted and made into a range of beauty and medicinal products. After Thursday Plantation students went to the Tea Tree Lake in Lennox head to wade in the dark tea tree water. Tea tree has been used for thousands of years by Aboriginal people and now by Australians.


Last week Tess from Bay FM came to school to interview students about how they celebrate St Valentine’s Day in their country. She interviewed students from Korea, Spain, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, Brazil and Taiwan. Most of the students were from David’s Intermediate B class. I heard Tess tell David that his students had really good speaking skills.

To listen to the students’ interviews tune in to Bay FM 99.9 on Monday 14 February 11:00 -12:00pm.
