Beach Activities and Surf Lessons! 31st July

Yesterday afternoon’s activity involved perfect waves and warm sunshine down at the beach! Some of our students took a surf lesson with Blake from ‘Lets Go Surfing’ and the rest of us enjoyed a nice walk and some time relaxing!

You can’t beat a glorious winters day in Byron Bay!

IMG_4953

Our surfing students were catching the waves at Belongil Beach. We tried to watch them but they had gone too far down the beach for us walking. Instead we found a nice spot by ‘The Wreck’ and set up a picnic rug. We had our usual coffee club treats (Tim-Tams) and great conversations.

We even had some furry friends come and say hello <3

IMG_4960

Some of us paddled in the water to cool off after the walk. We also practiced our soccer skills for this weeks game!!

It was a wonderful afternoon! Thank you Naoki, Nanami and Kana for showing great leadership skills and being so kind to our junior students!

There was a lot of beautiful scenery and wildlife to enjoy on the way up!

Schuichi was lucky enough to have Daijiro help him as it was a very step walk! 😀

This photo is taken from the look out at the most Eastern point of Australia!

The view from the top of the lighthouse was beautiful. We were lucky enough to see lots of whales and sail boats out on the horizon. Our students got many beautiful photos.

Dream Catcher Making! July 24th

Yesterday we had a creative afternoon making our own dream catchers!

We had a range of different fabrics and materials to work with and an assortment of beads, feathers and shells to decorate with.

The first step was to cover our hoop with with twine, wool or fabric so that you could no longer see the metal underneath. Then came the difficult part of creating the web. We watched a YouTube video to help us and once we had the hang of it, it became a lot easier.

They turned out beautiful. Well done!! 😀 I was especially impressed with Naoki who displayed immense patience and concentration in completing his dream catcher!! I am so proud of how they all turned out.

Wine and Cheese Afternoon! July 19th

Last Friday we ended the week with Wine and Cheese Tasting. It was another glorious Winter’s afternoon so we made the most of the sunshine and sat outside the front of school.

We had a great selection of cheeses including; Apricot and Almond Cream Cheese, Gouda, Brie and Camembert cheese.

As well as the wine we also had a selection of crackers and strawberries to enjoy.

It was a lovely way to start the Splendour weekend!! I hope you all had fun.

Whale Watching

So last weekend a group of students went whale watching with the Byron Bay Dive Centre…..

Each year, between May and November, southern hemisphere Humpback whales travel north from their Antarctic summer feeding grounds, past Cape Byron headland, and on to their breeding and birthing grounds in the sub-tropic. Once hunted to the brink of extinction, humpback whales now number about 80,000.

 

Fun Facts about Humpback Whales:

  • these beautiful creatures can grow up to 18 metres long
  • their flippers can grow up to 5 metres long, which is the largest appendage in the world.
  • weighing a whopping 40 tons!! thats about half the size of a blue whale.
  • like a human fingerprint, the tail of each humpback whale is unique.
  • they have two blowholes on top of their heads

The whales will be around until November so make sure you come and see us down at the travel desk and book your tour ….

Farmers Markets! July 18th

All aboard The Love Bus!! Destination: Byron Bay Farmers Markets <3

20190718_101546.jpg

It was a beautiful Thursday morning to check out the Byron Farmers markets at the new location at the Cavanbah Centre.

The farmers markets are always great for saving money and getting the freshest produce available whilst supporting local farmers!! Not to mention the great breakfast and coffee options available and the quality live music and entertainment. What a great way to start the day!

Table Tennis Tournament! July 18th

We had our monthly table tennis tournament in the student lounge yesterday afternoon. It was another stunning day and the swell was good so a lot of students had decided to go to the beach instead..

But there was still some fierce competition around!

Our first match was Fernanda vs Nanami.

Thank you to the wonderful Sagiri keeping track of the score. This round the winner was Fernanda!

The next match was Josefina vs Sagiri, with Josefina winning this round.

It was then Naoki vs myself. I started out strong but in the end, Naoki claimed the victory!

Our second heat was Fernanda vs Naoki and then Fernanda vs Josefina..

Fernanda was our undefeated champion for this month and took home the 6 pack prize!

Congratulations and well played!

Soccer Game against BBELS! July 17th

We had another beautiful sunny afternoon for our regular soccer match against Byron Bay English Language School this week.

IMG_4071

Naoki, Nanami, Sagiri, Patricia and Marisa made up our team and we also had Max and Moon from BBELS to balance out the numbers.

It was a very fun game to watch. The score remained close throughout the entire game.  In the final quarter BBELS scored 3 goals making the end total 11-8 to them.

Thanks to everyone who played and those who came down to support.

Great game guys. See you all again for our next match on Wednesday 31st July at 2.30pm.
