Today Maya, Pierre and I hit the classrooms to announce the Lexis English | Facebook Photo Competition!

Starting Monday March 31st, the competition will run for one week within Lexis | Byron Bay – followed by a second week where the winning photos from each Lexis school will compete to win amazing prizes!!

Here’s what you have to do:

1 – email your awesome photos either showing SERIOUS LEARNING, or SERIOUS FUN to me at

2 – Join the Lexis English Byron Bay Facebook group – and vote for your favourite photos between Monday 31st March and Monday 7th April by ‘liking’ them! The SERIOUS LEARNING and SERIOUS FUN photos with the most ‘Likes’ will win!

The SERIOUS LEARNING photo with the most likes by Monday 7th April will win a free snorkelling trip out to Julien Rocks to see turtles, sharks and other incredible marine life!

The SERIOUS FUN photo with the most likes by Monday 7th April will win a free stand up paddle boarding trip – glide down the Brunswick River with fish swimming underneath your board.

Here’s some ideas for the two categories:

SERIOUS LEARNING: fun activities in class, outdoors lessons, games set up by your teachers, studying outside school, library trips, excursions with your class, Coffee Lounge, helping each other with homework

SERIOUS FUN: surfing, BWT activities, trips to the beach, Lexis activities such as cooking, Friday afternoons on the beach, yoga, volleyball tournaments, ping pong in the Student Lounge, nights out with other students and BBQ’s at Clarkes Beach!

And for more inspiration – we have borrowed some of former student Rosane’s amazing photos from her time here at Byron Bay! In addition to this – teacher Julia will be holding a Photography Workshop from 2pm on Thursday – in Room 2.

These two winners will then enter into the Grand Final between all of the Lexis schools –

  • Brisbane
  • Noosa
  • Maroochydore
  • Perth
  • and of course our amazing Byron Bay!

The two winning photos from each school will go in the running to win either; a free skydive (!!!) or a free trip to Fraser Island – worth $700!!

The Grand Final will run from Monday 7th April until Monday 14th April, and the winners will once again be chosen based on the number of Facebook ‘Likes’ across all of the Lexis Facebook groups, as well as on the Backpacker World Travel and Student Uni Travel Facebook pages!

Come on guys. lets show the other schools how it’s done here in Byron Bay and ‘wow’ them with our outstanding photos!!
