Valentine’s Day! 14 February

In the run up to Valentines Day  ❤️ we had our Secret Valentines box in reception so students could anonymously send messages to their fellow Lexis students and staff!

IMG_1907

It wasn’t just for love notes; the students were encouraged to write a sweet message or a thank you note to make someone’s day!

 I had a great time sorting through all the messages, there were some very thoughtful ones in there, and a lot of funny ones too!

Someone even wrote a brilliant message to Tim Tams; many of the students favourite Australian snack!

Myself and the teachers handed the messages out during the afternoon,

and we showed the students some love by treating them all to a BBQ lunch in the sunshine!

Making Dream Catchers! 15 February

Yesterday we made some beautiful Dream Catchers!!

For our morning session we watched a video online to show us how to make the centre netting, but by the afternoon session I was an expert and was able to demonstrate for the students!

It was then time to get creative and decorate the dream catchers with hanging material, beads and shells!

They now have excellent souvenirs or gifts for friends and family back home!
