Beer Tasting! 28 September

Today’s activity was Beer Tasting!!

IMG_6823

I was joined by our new team, the lovely Orla! Orla will be starting with us in the office next week and also running our morning activities. It was a great way to welcome her to the school and for her to get to know some of the students!

We had five different beers to try: Mandarin India Pale Ale (Amanda), Dark Ale (White Rabbit), Stone & Wood (Green Coast), Pale Ale (Colonial) and an IPA (Fixation Obsession).

The students had a taste of each and then guessed the flavours, state where it’s made in Australia, alcohol percentage and price.

Beer Table

There was no clear favourite as there were a few votes for each, but I have a feeling at 6.7% everyone may start buying more of the Mandarin IPA!

Graduation! 28 September

Congratulations and farewell to our two students graduating from Lexis Byron Bay today!

Carmen, from Spain, graduates from Claudia’s Upper Intermediate class. It has been wonderful having her here with us at Lexis for the past 24 weeks and watching her English improve and confidence grow. She worked hard and participated enthusiastically in all activities. She is a respectful student who was friendly and kind to all Lexis staff and students. We’re glad this isn’t goodbye as Carmen will join us again for our Cambridge course in December. Enjoy your break and we  look forward to seeing you in a few months ❤

Dunia, from Spain, graduates from Mel’s Intermediate class. She has been a lovely student who was always polite and good to have a conversation with. She put in a great deal of effort during her 4 weeks with us and graduates with a well deserved A; well done Dunia! We hope you enjoyed your time here as much as we enjoyed having you and wish you the very best for the future!

Campus manager, Lisa, stepped in to take the class photo…

Make a Bag! 27 September

Here at Lexis Byron Bay we all care about the environment, but no-one more so then beloved teacher Adrienne. Adrienne is passionate about everything she does, particularly educating and encouraging students and staff to do more to care for this beautiful world we live in ❤

Yesterday Adrienne combined this with her love of fashion and showed the students how to make bags from T-shirts!

The bags can be used for shopping to stop us using plastic bags, or make a cute bag for all our regular trips to the beach!

The technique was really simple to follow and Adrienne guided all the students until they each had their own unique bags to take home!

There was lots of fun and laughter along the way, and Ibon even found another use for his…

Thank you Adrienne ❤ Looking forward to doing more activities like this in the future!

September Table Tennis Tournament ’18!

Today we had our monthly Table Tennis Tournament!

We didn’t have as many competitors as usual as the sun was shining and the waves were good, so many of the students were heading to the beach for a surf!

IMG_6580

Eric, Jeff, Ibon and Lucas couldn’t resist winning the cold beers though!

They each played against eachother to 11,

Eric VS Lucas: Eric 11-7

Eric VS Jeff: Eric 11-4

Jeff VS Ibon: Jeff 11-3

Ibon VS Lucas: Ibon 11-6

Jeff VS Lucas: Jeff 11-4

Eric VS Ibon: Eric 11-10

Then the points from each of their 3 games were added together to determined the winner…

Lucas: 17

Ibon: 24

Jeff: 26

and the winner with 33 points… Eric!!!

Eric did have a slight advantage being that he’s a tennis coach, but he kindly shared his beers so everyone was happy 🙂
