IMG_2956

Today we had our final Coffee Club for our Hiroshima Juniors group! We had our usual favourites – delicious coffees and TimTams, as well as a very fun game of Uno. We all chatted about what everyone did yesterday evening and took the time to reflect on their two-week trip so far. Everyone agreed that they would like more time here at Lexis Byron Bay as they are enjoying it so much!

We also announced the winner of our recent Scavenger Hunt photography challenge – it was the amazing group Yoga shot, taken by Kanon. Well done Kanon! 😀 See her winning shot below and her accepting her prize – TimTams! 😀

Hiroshima Juniors Surf Lesson @ The Wreck, Byron Bay – March 28

This morning we hit the beach for our second surf lesson! It was a different kind of day – not as sunny, but the clouds and light were beautiful on the beach.

Some of the students returned to do a surf lesson, while the rest were happy to swim, walk the beach and pick interesting rocks and shells 🙂

Wet-suits ready to go!

Blake from Lets Go Surfing picked us up promptly at 9am, dropping us to their shop by the beach. Once everyone got fitted with their boards and wet-suits, we were ready to hit the waves!

On our way to the beach

Everyone had a quick dip in the sea to cool down before the lesson.

We had the lovely Amy as our instructor today and she went through all the important points, tips and safety instructions before they were ready to hit the waves.

While they were preparing for surf, the others went for another dip!

Ready for the waves!!!

We were later joined by Lexis students Nico and Anselmo!

Boomerang Painting! 27th March

 We had a relaxing afternoon painting boomerangs in the student lounge. The rain poured down outside while we got creative inside. Everyone came up with their own unique design. Some of us chose to follow the traditional aboriginal style while others let their creative imaginations run wild.

 

They all look amazing, I think even better than the ones you can buy in a store!!

I think we could of stayed painting for hours, thank you for a fun afternoon! 🙂

Today we had the very fun and creative activity of Boomerang painting! Our Hiroshima Juniors joined with  their classmates and together, we all painted our own individual boomerang.

Everyone ready to start! 🙂

I had some painted boomerangs to show as examples, as well as some information about the meaning behind all the symbols – an interesting insight into the traditional Aboriginal style, used to tell stories through the artists paintings.

See everyone concentrating hard on their masterpieces! 😀

Hiroshima Juniors Coffee Club! March 27th

IMG_2713

This morning, we sheltered from the morning rain, in the comfort of the student lounge! We all met at 9am and began our time with a quick catch up on everyone’s week, finding out what we all got up to in the evenings and reflecting on their time so far in Byron. We all agreed that the last week and half has gone by very quickly! 🙂

We all enjoyed some delicious coffees and Tim Tams while playing some games of Jenga and Uno.

 

CHEERS! (or ‘kampai’, as they say in Japan 🙂 )
