We start the month with Wine and Cheese Tasting! This will be at 5.30pm in front of school so both our morning and afternoon students can enjoy together!

On the 5th we have Smoothie Club at 11am, where we’ll make some delicious smoothies from fresh fruit, and Coffee Club at 2pm, where we’ll enjoy coffee, Tim Tams and conversations! On the 12th we will have Coffee Club for both morning and afternoon students (11am and 2pm)!

Free Body Board and wetsuit hire will be provided by Let’s Go Surfing on the 6th!

On the 7th we have Tie Dying at 11am and 2pm; bring your own white garment. or purchase a top from us for a small fee, to cover in colourful patterns! A great Byron Bay souvenir!

For sports we have Soccer on the 8th and Volleyball on the 15th (11am and 2pm); both will either be in the garden or at the beach, depending on weather and numbers!

Our monthly Table Tennis Tournament will be on the 13th; at 11am and 2pm in the student lounge.

There will be a special 1 hour Surf Lesson for just $20 with Let’s Go Surfing on the 14th. Pick up times from school will be 10am and 3pm. Come see me in reception if you’d like to book this!

With it being Christmas we have some fun festive activities planned for the week before! Starting with a Christmas themed Coffee Club on the 19th, followed by Christmas Cooking on the 20th and Christmas Decoration Making on the 21st!!

On the 22nd we will be having a Traditional Food Fair & Trivia! Everyone is encouraged to bring in a traditional food dish from their home country! You will then be able to help yourself to as much food as you like by giving a gold coin donation; this money will then be split between two charities (much like the Sweet Exchange we did this month!). More details to follow!

We have Yoga every Monday at 11am and 2pm in Room 8.

Job Club is every Wednesday in Room 8 (with GIL). Myself or a teacher will be able to help you write resumes/cover letters, look for jobs, apply for TFN’s and give you advice on gaining your RSA or Barista license!

New Starters! 27 November

Welcome to our six new students joining us today at Lexis Byron Bay!

Group

Silvan is from the German speaking part of Switzerland. His hobbies include skiing, fitness and listening to music. After finishing school he worked as a roofer and carpenter but will join the Swiss army for 5 months when he returns. He wants to improve his English as it is the language of the world and he would like to travel Canada, USA and England as well as Australia!

Juliana, from Brazil, enjoys swimming, cycling and watching movies. She also loves going to beach and would like to learn to surf, so Byron Bay was the perfect choice for her studies! She also chose this location because of the beautiful weather that is similar to Brazil. She believes this learning experience will be very important for her future work and life!

Rafael, from Brazil, is the second oldest son in a family of seven men! In Brazil his job was to audit big companies and give them financial advice, but he decided he needed a break from this and that’s what has brought him to Byron! It has always been his dream to come to Australia and he is wanting to improve his English so he can either find work here or further his career in Brazil!

Nana is from Nagano, Japan. They get a lot of snow here in the winter so she snowboards often. She loves animals and has a dog named Sappu and a cat named Hana (flower in Japanese). She is looking forward to studying hard, meeting new people and having a good time whilst here with us at Lexis!

Amanda, from Brazil, loves travelling and experiencing new things! She has just graduated in Chemical Engineering and during her studies worked as an intern at Sandland, a business management consultant company. She wants to improve her English so she can complete a post graduate course in Australia!

Luis, from Brazil, will study with us at Lexis Byron for 24 weeks in General English before starting our Business course at the end of May. Before coming to Byron he also studied at Lexis Brisbane! He is here with his wife and they are both hoping to find work and stay here in Australia for at least 2 or 3 years!

Our two Cambridge classes, Advanced with Josie and First with Paul, have just finished their 12 weeks of study, so we thought they deserved a treat for all their hard work!

They were joined by the students from our General English classes so they could all enjoy some sausages and drinks together in the sun!

Myself and Harriett made sure nobody went hungry and everyone was delighted with their free lunch!

Good luck to our Cambridge students with your remaining exams!!
