Do have a Bedroom spare?

We have had so many enquiries about share accommodation.

If you have a bedroom spare and are looking for a room mate, come and talk to Robyn on your break. She will be able to help.

Great Barrier Reef

Tatsuya had a great time on the Great Barrier Reef weekend away!

Tatsuya decided that before he left, he had to visit the world’s largest coral reef. He went on his own last weekend! He got to see all the amazing marine life when he got to scuba dive for the first time, meet new friends from Australia and other English schools, and also discovered that he suffers from sea sickness!

Tatsuya: ” I want to go again!”

There was such high demand for this trip that it is now running every week. If you would like to go please see Robyn or Ryoko and they can help organise it for you. It goes for 3 days and is $380.

Did you know…

Optus now have prepaid wireless internet?

So now if there is no internet in your sharehouse, you can get your own! It is only $30 for 2Gb of downloads.

Check out or check out the Optus Store on Queen Street.
