Foundation Skills Students take a trip to The Cedars

A trip to the Art Gallery inspired our English students to visit the family home of artists Nora and Hans Heyson, The Cedars, in Hahndorf!

It was a lovely day for a drive through the Adelaide Hills, the excellent weather and warm sunshine made the perfect trip for visiting too! Once there, our students had an amazing time touring the art studio, gardens, and family home. This experience connected us all to this talented family and gave our students the opportunity to practise their English! They had no qualms about asking the tour guide questions and talking about the artwork on display.

We hope to be able to provide more opportunities for more of our students in the future!

Foundation Skills Students Visit the SA Museum

 

Last month, we took our class of Foundation Skills English students to the Art Gallery of South Australia! We had a look at the art on display by Nora Heyson and her father, Hans Heyson, both famous Australia painters. The students were very excited to be able to see the paintings close up as we had been talking about both painters during class.
 
It was a relaxing break from English classes as the students were able to spend some quiet time admiring the artworks!

The visit has inspired us to visit the paintersโ€™ family home in Hahndorf, so we planned for a visit for the next class outing.

 

February Recipes of Life Update

The tutors and the participants discussed the main dishes which will be prepared at a future Shared Lunch.

The group wrote all the ingredients, with their quantities, for the main dishes (Falafel (below), Kabab hindi, Kanafeh).

Furthermore, it was discussed how much time each dish will take so the time can be managed on the day.

Maryam very kindly offered to demonstrate making Kebab Hindi at the next class. 

Heam made Kanafeh (below) and she did very well.
