We have a lovely team of staff here at Lexis Byron Bay and it’s a small school, so you’ll probably meet most of us during your time here! Keep reading to find out more about everyone, including a few fun facts about us all!
Lisa is our Campus Manager and Director of Studies, so she has the challenging job of keeping the whole school organised and running smoothly.
Lisa decided to come to Australia because she met 2 Aussies on a Nile cruise in 1999!
Yvonne is our Homestay and Student Services Officer, so she matches students with our lovely homestay families and helps students with any other day-to-day questions.
Yvonne has a great sense of humour and is always making us laugh in the office!
Laura is our Activities and Student Services Officer, so she organises daily student activities, keeps our Lexis Byron Bay blog and Facebook page up-to-date, helps students with any questions or problems and makes sure every student is happy! Laura is sad to be leaving Lexis Byron Bay soon, but hopes to return later in the year!
Laura loves taking photographs with old film cameras – in fact, you can see her photographs here 🙂
