Happy Student – Monica

Monica has been a student at Lexis Byron Bay for just over 3 months. In this time she has continued to shine! Monica is always warm and patient with new students and brings out the best in everyone around her. She has made many strong friendships during her time here and we will all miss her when she leaves us at the end of this week. Everyone that knows Monica, knows how truly kind and selfless she is.

We asked her a few questions for our ‘Happy Students Blog’ to get to know her even better:

Where are you from?

I’m from Garopaba. It’s a small town in the South of Brazil.

Why did you come to Australia?

I came to Australia because I have friends here and the country’s wealth is quite similar to Brazil. I choose Byron Bay because it’s a small town, like my home town in Brazil and I feel at home here.

What is your favourite thing about Byron Bay?

I love Byron Bay and I don’t know if I can choose just one thing. I’m so lucky because I had a lot of good friends here and also I have made many good friends.

Is your English Improving?

Yes, for sure! When I arrived here I couldn’t speak well, but now I feel much more confident.

It has been a delight having you as a student Monica and I can’t thank you enough for all the laughs and good times you have brought to our activities!

Marta is from Spain. In her free time she enjoys learning new sports, searching for new bands to listen to, second hand clothing shopping and watching movies.  She studied classical and contemporary dance, but unfortunately had to stop due to an injury. She also studied tourism and hopes in the future to work as an air hostess.

Gabriela is from Brazil. She enjoys going to the gym, doing jujitsu and dancing with her friends. She finished her masters degree in Public Administration and worked in this field for 6 years. Gabriela hopes to improve her English to continue her studies when she returns to Brazil.

Romina is from the German speaking part of Switzerland.  In her free time she enjoys skiing and while she is in Byron hopes to learn to surf. She has worked as a medical assistant in a surgery with 6 doctors. Romina’s job was to take blood and analyse it, also take x-rays and make vaccinations. She hopes to improve her English so she can travel alone around Australia and New Zealand.

Masaki is from Japan. He has played baseball from ten years and hopes to learn to surf while he is in Byron Bay. He has chosen to study in Australia because the people are kind, the scenery is beautiful and the weather is lovely. In the future he wants to be an English Teacher in a Japanese Junior High.

Rodrigo is from Brazil. He has transferred schools from Perth. He has a long enrollment with us and we look forward to getting to know him. He is very friendly and we hope he enjoys the Byron Bay way of life.

Pot Plant Painting! 22nd August

Yesterday was the perfect afternoon to Paint Pot Plants!

We soaked up the beautiful Byron Bay sunshine and sat out the front of Room 1. We were able to let our creative minds run wild and paint whatever we liked on our pots.

Most of us decided we would give them away to our friends or host family as a gift. They were looking fantastic!

We had some Alyssium and Snap Dragon seedlings to plant after we had completed our pots that made them look even more spectacular.

It was such a relaxing activity, we could of stayed painting all afternoon.

Table Tennis! August 21st

Wednesday afternoon we had our monthly Table Tennis Tournament. It was a lovely sunny afternoon so we only had a small turn out, but it was still tight competition.

First up was Naoki vs Fabrice. It was a close game, with both competitors being equally as strong. In the end, Fabrice was the first to score 21 points and win the match. Next up was Fernanda vs Johnny..

Fernanda was July’s champion and also the runner up in June. She is a fierce competitor and hard one to beat! This month was no exception and she defeated both Johnny and Fabrice to win herself the 6 pack of beer!

IMG_5602

Congratulations Fernanda!!

Keep an eye on next months calendar for a chance to compete for a 6 pack of ice cold beer and win the title of Table Tennis Champion for the month!
