Christmas Party 2016! 23rd December

On the 23rd of December we had our Lexis Byron Bay Christmas Party!

All the students and teachers gathered together for food, drinks and games!

Claudia’s class performed their own excellent version of Jingle Bell Rock, re-named Byron Bay Rock! Myuri and Jane were on the guitar and everyone was given a copy of the song so they could sing along! The words can also be found at the bottom of this blog ūüôā

Beckie and Melinda’s class had arranged a game of pass the parcel to play, with prizes including chocolate, beer and best of them all, a brick!

Anji and Ellie’s class played a game of festive bingo! Everyone was given a piece of paper with pictures associated with Christmas on them and had to cross the correct one off when it was called out. There were lots of winners in this game, meaning plenty of prizes given out!

Kristy and Julia’s class played a game where the students had to act out whatever was on the slip of paper they were given, while everyone else had to guess what they were doing! These included making a snowman, reading a Christmas card and opening a present!

Iruka’s class split everyone into 2 groups and 2 people were assigned as doctors that had to work out what medical condition everyone was suffering from, which was that they all thought they were the person next to them! Both groups managed to work this out, good effort!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and look forward to seeing those of you returning on the 3rd of January!

After Christmas we have a short break before returning to school on Tuesday 3rd January. We have an exciting month of activities to kick off the start of the new year! These activities are run in both the morning and afternoon especially for our lucky Lexis students.

Every Monday you can stretch out and relax doing Yoga with Stef in the garden from 11-12 and with Fee in Room 8 from 2:15 to 3:15.

On Tuesdays and Wednesdays we alternate the popular activity of Coffee Lounge, which gives students the chance to get to know each other while practicing English, with other fun activities. On the first Tuesday back we will have a BBQ to welcome all our new students, then on the following weeks we will enjoy learning to Skateboard with Flavio, Slackline with Olmo and we have an exciting BWT Travel Bonanza day with special deals and travel prizes to be won! We will finish off the month with the 1-hour Surf Lesson.

On¬†Thursdays¬†we start the month with a 1-hour Surf Lesson with the amazing team at Let’s Go Surfing Byron Bay. We have¬†Job Club¬†the following week to help any students looking to work while they are in Australia. Then there is¬†Aussie Cooking where we will bake some yummy Anzac Biscuits. The last Thursday of the month is Australia Day, which is a public holiday so there will be no school on this day.

On Fridays we will be keeping active and heading to the beach as much as possible to enjoy the Summer in Byron Bay! To start the month we have the Table Tennis Tournament to find out who our new Lexis Champion is, then we have Volleyball and the very Aussie game of Cricket on the following weeks before finishing off the month with a Sandcastle Building Competition (with prizes to be won!).

GIL (Guided Individual Learning) runs every day from 12-1pm and 2-3pm in Room 8. Come along to get help with anything from homework to vocabulary to writing your resume.

We will also continue to enjoy our Student Nights at Cheeky Monkeys every Tuesday night ‚Äď meet at BWT @ 8pm first to get your drinks, food and fun!

Don’t forget that you can book your 3-hour surf lessons with us anytime at Reception for just $50!

Have a great month!ūüôā

New Starters! December 12

Welcome to the five new starters at Lexis Byron Bay this week!

img_1457

Bruno is from Brazil and is an only child. His father is a Mechanic and his mother works for a company as the Manager of Distribution. Bruno likes diving, surfing, playing piano, the beach and  nature. He works from home as a Goldsmith. He decided to come to Australia for the warm weather and similar climate to Brazil. He wants to learn English so he can further his knowledge for his career with courses in other countries.

Axel is from Switzerland and lives in the small town of Fribourg. He has a large family, with two brothers and two  sisters. He completed his apprenticeship as a Watch Maker but wants to follow a new career path when he returns, possibly working in the Luxury Car industry. He decided to learn English because it is an important language that is useful for discovering other countries and ways of life in the world.

Thomas is from Switzerland and is one of four in his family, including his parents and older sister. He loves playing tennis¬†and football. After completing school he decided that he prefers manual labour over sitting at a desk so now works as a gardener. He chose to study English in Australia because it is a wonderful country and it’s a good excuse to get out of Switzerland for their Winter!

Larissa is from Brazil and¬†lives in the city of Sao Paulo with her mother and brother. She is studying Biomedical Engineering at university and in the future hopes to continue her studies at a university with a more advanced course in this area. This is part ¬†of the reason for her wanting to study English. She also chose to study in Australia because she has a cousin living in Sydney and she visited Australia herself when she was a young child but doesn’t remember much of that trip. She chose to live in Byron Bay to experience living in a small town with a calm, relaxing lifestyle and after just one day here so far, she already loves it!

Shirori is from Japan and is one of four in her family, with her mother, father and older brother. She loves yoga and hopes to one day be a yoga teacher. She decided to study English to help her reach this goal. She chose to study in Byron Bay because this area is well known for having a lot of different yoga classes and retreats to experience.

Slacklining! December 9

Byron Bay has been hit with storm after incredible storm this week and today has turned out to be a bit rainy and overcast as a result.

img_1390

The weather did not deter the students from slacklining though!

img_1419

They were as keen as ever to get on the line and learn or keep practicing their balance.

Everyone did really well and the students who have been attending the slackline activity each month are improving each time!

img_1389

A big thank you to Olmo from Slackline Byron Bay Balance Revolution for coming by to teach us the skills of slacklining!

Table Tennis Tournament! December 8

Today we held the Table Tennis Tournament to find this month’s Lexis Champion!

We held two sessions, to allow both morning and afternoon students to be involved, so ended up with two champions for this month.

In the morning Roman held onto his title from last month…

Paulo’s Homestay Experience

Paulo is from Germany and graduated from Lexis Byron Bay last week after seven weeks of studying English. During that time he lived in a homestay, which was a wonderfully positive experience for both him and the family he stayed with! After leaving, he sent this great photo collage to his homestay family to thank them for the experience and to share with future students staying with them. ūüôā

Coffee Lounge! December 6

Being such a hot day in Byron Bay today, a hot coffee wasn’t too appealing! Instead we had a nice cold beer and tried to eat the TimTams before they all melted!

img_1329

While enjoying the beers we played a round of Lexis Jenga and learnt a little bit more about each other from the questions on each tile.

 

For example, we found out that Francesco’s dream holiday is to be on the island of Bora Bora, preferably enjoying the company of 17 women! We also discovered Pauline’s most embarrassing moment was when she arrived at school for what she thought was a normal day only to realise she (and her mum) had totally forgotten about her school camp leaving that very morning! There was also a fairly unanimous agreement that if any of us had a billion dollars, it would be spent on travelling the world.

 

New Starters! December 5

Welcome to the 16 new starters at Lexis Byron Bay this week!

Cider Tasting! December 1

Today we sampled some Australian ciders. It was a perfect activity for the hot weather on the first day of Summer!

img_1205

The ciders were brewed all over Australia, from the Adelaide Hills (The Hills Cider Company) to Sydney (5 Seeds) and a couple of local ones from Byron Bay (Treehouse Cider and Wild Cider).

img_1202

Everyone had a different favourite, which wasn’t surprising given the broad range of tastes and flavours in these ciders.

img_1201

From a dry, crisp apple to a sweeter pear and an infused flavour of native Finger Lime with apple, there was a cider for everyone!
