Benjamin, from Chile, graduates from Mel and Julia’s Intermediate class. It has been an absolute joy having him here at Lexis. He is a ray of sunshine and we will all miss his infectious laughter, positivity and easy going nature! He has improved in all areas of his English during his time here, particularly his speaking and listening. All the best for the future Ben!

Fabio, from Switzerland, graduates from Claudia’s Upper Intermediate class. We have loved getting to know him over the past 8 weeks and wished he was staying longer!

Jewellery Making! 21 June

Yesterday we had a lovely afternoon making jewellery here at Lexis Byron!

I showed the students how to make net wrap pendants, that can then be turned into necklaces, bracelets, key chains, bag accessories or just decoration!

They also made some of their own designs using the beads, shells and jewels available to them!

Soccer Match against BBELS! 20 June

On Wednesday we had our fourth Soccer Match against BBELS, one of Byron’s other local schools!

Our team of 10, along with their loyal supporters, headed down to the nearby sports fields for the big event!

Everyone played fantastically and we were able to hold on to a championship title with a 5-0 win!!!

GO TEAM LEXIS!!

Man of the Match goes to Jeff who scored 3 of the goals, but he couldn’t have done it without the help of his team!

Scoring the other 2 goals that led us to victory were Fabio and Keigo!

Another great game guys, well done!!
