Students of Lexis Byron Bay enjoyed an array of fabulous goodies this morning as part of Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea. Thanks to our Student Services Coordinator Michelle for providing us with delicious sweet treats… …as well as some fresher options for the health conscious among us!
Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is an annual event in which people all over Australia get together with friends and colleagues for morning tea! The purpose of the event is to raise funds for the Australian Cancer Council’s vital work in cancer research, prevention and support services. Hosts invite guests to join them for morning tea in return for a donation. It’s a great opportunity to take a break and get together with friends, family and colleagues and have fun, while making an important contribution to cancer research.
Lexis Byron Bay will be hosting a Morning Tea Event this Thursday 24th May.
We look forward to seeing all our students there!
Today we said goodbye to the beautiful Naoko who has been studying at Lexis Byron Bay for a grand total of fifty weeks! Naoko first came to Lexis in October 2010, speaking very little English. Over almost two years, her English has improved tremendously and she has been a wonderful inspiration to the students and staff here at school.
Naoko came to Byron Bay so that her daughter could attend Cape Byron Steiner School. “I had always heard about Byron Bay – I heard that it was a place with so many hippies! I love all the festivals: Bluesfest, Woodford – actually I am a party girl!”
“When I came to Byron Bay, English was very difficult for me. If I had been younger, I would have learnt more quickly, but I began to learn English at the age of 54 – I am 56 now. Can you imagine? Imagine your mother trying to learn English! So I am very grateful to everyone at Lexis Byron Bay for their patience.”
“The teachers at Lexis are so excellent. They have compassion. They are thoughtful and they are very humorous. I am very grateful to all the teachers.”
“To all the students I would like you to know that I am very good at cooking. So if you are feeling homesick for the food of your country, let me know, and I will make you some food for your soul.”
Naoko’s gentle presence and her wonderful sense of humour will be very missed at Lexis Byron Bay. But we are happy to hear that Naoko will be staying here in Byron while her daughter finishes secondary school and we hope to welcome her back for frequent visits!
