Hip Hop Class! August 29th

Thursday afternoon we had the incredible Mina Sangsari come and take us for a Hip Hop lesson! Her classes are always high energy and consist of a combination of hip hop, funk and Caribbean styles.

IMG_5796

We got straight into a fast paced warm up, with plenty of stretching and jumping.

Then we began learning a hip hop routine. We practiced to a nice slow tune to start with, before trying it out to a really fast beat.

You can catch Mina the Beach Hotel on Monday’s for Reggae Night, where she performs with her dance crew. She also has regular workshops and classes at the Circus Arts School for those who love to dance. Keep an eye on the Lexis Facebook page or come and see me for more information.

We are all ready looking forward to having her back next month for another great class 😀

She hopes to improve her English so she can travel alone around Australia and New Zealand.

Masaki is from Japan. He has played baseball from ten years and hopes to learn to surf while he is in Byron Bay.

Pot Plant Painting! 22nd August

Yesterday was the perfect afternoon to Paint Pot Plants!

We soaked up the beautiful Byron Bay sunshine and sat out the front of Room 1. We were able to let our creative minds run wild and paint whatever we liked on our pots.

Most of us decided we would give them away to our friends or host family as a gift. They were looking fantastic!

We had some Alyssium and Snap Dragon seedlings to plant after we had completed our pots that made them look even more spectacular.

It was such a relaxing activity, we could of stayed painting all afternoon.

Table Tennis! August 21st

Wednesday afternoon we had our monthly Table Tennis Tournament. It was a lovely sunny afternoon so we only had a small turn out, but it was still tight competition.

First up was Naoki vs Fabrice. It was a close game, with both competitors being equally as strong. In the end, Fabrice was the first to score 21 points and win the match. Next up was Fernanda vs Johnny..

Fernanda was July’s champion and also the runner up in June. She is a fierce competitor and hard one to beat! This month was no exception and she defeated both Johnny and Fabrice to win herself the 6 pack of beer!

Congratulations Fernanda!!

Keep an eye on next months calendar for a chance to compete for a 6 pack of ice cold beer and win the title of Table Tennis Champion for the month!

Whale Watching

Hey Guys

 

So some of the students plus myself went whale watching last Sunday…..

Upon arrival we were greeted by the lovely staff that work at the Dive Centre. Before departure our group sat down and watched the safety video,  we then put our belongings in the lockers, our cameras in the water proof case, our spray jackets on and away we went.

 

The ocean was calm and wonderful.. We saw a turtle near Julia Rocks, plenty of sea birds and then the magic started… Massive Humpback whales started spirting water out of their blow hole… We even saw a sharks fin cruising across the surface of the water, which was super cool and rare.

It was such an amazing day, the guides were amazing with such great knowledge of the sea and the wild life that inhabit it. We learnt so much about these big beautiful creatures. a massive thank you to the team at Byron Bay Dive Centre. Thank you for taking care of us, making us laugh with your funny jokes, for educating us on the sea and the animals… It truely was a wonderful experience..

Baking Extravaganza for RSPCA Cupcake Day! August 15th

Thursday afternoon we got together in the student kitchen to do some baking in preparation for the official RSPCA Cupcake Day! It has been a delicious week so far! Many students have been participating by baking all sorts of incredible home made treats to sell. All donations will go directly to supporting animals in need!

 

Thursday afternoon we made Chocolate Chip Cookies (with extra chocolate chips) and Classic Cupcakes with chocolate sauce and butter icing!!!

IMG_5499

We followed this nice and easy recipe:

Cookies

Once we had rolled the cookie mixture into balls and placed on the tray we added even more choc chips to the top before putting them in the oven to bake! 😀

IMG_5483

Whilst the cookies were in the oven we got started on making the cupcakes!

Cupcakes

We didn’t have a muffin tray to use, so they did come out of the oven a little bit square.. but they still tasted delicious so we didn’t mind. They took around 20 minutes to bake, which gave us plenty of time to prepare the butter icing and chocolate sauce for decorating. We also had sprinkles, coconut and left over chocolate chips to use!

Don’t they look cute? <3 You can try them in today’s bake sale at break and lunch time along with many other yummy treats! Help us reach our goal of $300 by donating generously!!

We love our spelt peanut butter cookies, sugar free banana bread and vegan chocolate slice. These type of products sell well at SSB. If your comfortable with making these types of products your our person! 

We really like it if you come up with new and exciting offers, everything gets a go as we really like to experiment with different ingredients. We are a high level artisan bakery and cafe that specialises in all that is made in house & has a healthy and locally sourced edge. We have many products that are sugar free, vegan and gluten free. We also do some classics to keep the masses happy.

Fine quality cakes with writing and moulds is not what we are. Anything that requires too much labour isn’t our style. For example don’t do individual cakes to order and certainly not wedding cakes!

Money wise we pay top dollar for your experience & you can basically choose your hours within reason. Unfortunately our amazing, long term current pasty chef has an ongoing injury gotten worse and had to resign immediately, so you can start ASAP. Please feel free to call (Conor 044 988 7311) anytime to discuss, have a look at our Instagram for an idea of our vibe. If your not from Byron Bay we can help with getting your accomodation too.

Boomerang Painting! August 8th

Yesterday afternoon’s activity was Boomerang Painting.

The traditional Australian boomerang has been historically used for hunting, as well as sport and entertainment. They are commonly thought of as an Australian iconic symbol, and come in various shapes and sizes with all sorts of beautiful, colourful designs. In Aboriginal culture it is common to see the style of painting where a lot of tiny dots are perfectly painted to create specific shapes. These shapes or symbols often represent things relevant to aboriginal culture.

We had the creative freedom to come up with our own unique designs or follow the more traditional Aboriginal designs. A lot of imagination and colour was used. The finished product looked beautiful.
