Graduation 31 August 2012

We said farewell to another awesome groups of students today. Fifteen year old TAP student Antoine returns to France for another school year – a little bit taller, a little bit more tanned and a MUCH better surfer! Our old friend Leo is off to Cairns after nearly a year in Byron – we’ll miss you Leo! Japanese student Mamiko is off to Uluru for an outback adventure and Sergio and Laerte return to Brazil.


Goodbye and good luck everyone!


Getting Fresh at Lexis Byron Bay

Now that the weather is warming up, we were in the mood for something a little bit lighter for our weekly cooking adventure at Lexis Byron Bay. So we opted for Asian style salads for something light and tasty.

Thanks to Jisu, Hiroki, Lea and everyone else who helped prepare and eat the delicious cabbage and fried noodle salad and the (arguably) even more delicious rice noodle salad with fresh herbs and chilli. A bit of a change from our usual Aussie-style BBQ, just to keep things fresh!
