Welcome to our New Starters – Aurelie and Dorothea


This week we welcome two students to Lexis Byron Bay: Dorothea Obwegeser and Aurelie Ferrara. Both have just finished high school and both are from Switzerland, although Dorothea is originally from Austria and Aurelie is lucky enough to have an Italian passport and therefore a Working Holiday Visa.

Dorothea, is here for four weeks and will be doing our English and surfing program. In addition to surfing, she loves all kinds of water activities and, so, is looking forward to snorkeling, scuba diving and stand up paddle-boarding while she is here. When she returns to Switzerland she’s going straight into university to study medicine.

Aurelie is having a gap year to decide what she wants to study at university. She’s going to study for the Certificate of Advanced English, while she is in Australia and then hopes to travel to New Zealand and up to Cairns. She said she chose Byron Bay because the pictures she saw of here looked amazing!

Welcome to both of you. We all hope you have a wonderful time at Lexis English.
