Crepe Making Competition!

Friday afternoon we had my personal favourite activity for the month..

The Crepe Making Competition!

We followed the following simple recipe to make the crepe mixture:
~~~~
INGREDIENTS

  • 4 cups plain flour

  • A few pinches of salt

  • 4 eggs

  • 4 cups of milk

METHOD
  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Blend until smooth. Add a little water and mix to desired consistency. Cover and set aside to rest for 5 minutes.

  • Heat a medium non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Spray with cooking oil. Using 1/4 cup mixture per pancake, pour batter over pan, tilting from side to side so batter covers base in a thin film. Cook pancake for about 1 minute or until underside is golden, then use a spatula to flip. Cook other side for just under a minute until golden. Repeat with remaining mixture, spraying pan with cooking oil between pancakes.

We had a wide range of delicious ingredients to decorate our masterpieces with including; nutella, whipped cream, nuts, bananas, strawberries, blue berries, golden syrup, coconut, hundreds and thousands, chocolate fingers and icing sugar

 There was plenty of mixture to go around, so we all made ourselves multiple crepes to enjoy! The competition was judged on creativity and appearance.

Congratulations to Filipa for her beautiful love heart design! She is our crepe making champion for the month! I was especially impressed with how your crepe was a perfect circel 😉 Well done!

Martin is from Madrid, Spain. He lives near the center of the city in a loft style apartment. His passion is boxing. He is lucky where he lives, as it is close to his boxing gym. Martin has been studying electronic engineering and business management for the last six and a half years  and has recently finished. He is here in Australia to improve his English and to have a good time 🙂

Alice is from the Italian speaking part of Switzerland. She enjoys playing sports. When she was young she practiced gymnastics, but as she got older, she needed something more dynamic. This lead her to become a triathlete. She hopes to continue to train whilst here in Australia. In the future, Alice, thinks that she may like to study hotel management or study at a school of sports. She has not made up her mind yet, so for now she just wants to enjoy her time in Australia.

Jules is from France. He loves swimming and since he has arrived in Australia he has been swimming every morning in the sea. He has recently finished his masters degree in law and now he is here to improve his English for his future career. He choose to come to Australia for the beautiful weather and beaches.

Marc is from Spain. His hobbies include, climbing mountains, football, horse riding and surfing. In Spain he works as a computer scientist. He has been working hard ever since graduating and is now looking forward to traveling and gaining personal experiences.

Marine is from Belgium. She likes to travel and discover the world. In the future she would like to study event management, but first she hopes to improve her English because she believes it is very important for her future goals. It has always been a dream to come to Australia and she hopes to make the most of her time here and meet many wonderful people.

Hip Hop with Mina! September 25th

On Wednesday we had Byron’s best Hip Hop dance teacher come and take us for another fun filled lesson!

IMG_6568

Mina always starts her hip hop lesson with a full on warm-up, to get our bodies ready. We then got straight into learning a routine.  

Mina gave us the option of learning a fast paced routine, or something a bit slower.. nobody was quick enough to speak up, so she went with a fast paced routine to challenge us.

There was some tricky floor work involved, but everyone nailed it 🙂

Keep an eye on our Lexis Byron Bay Facebook page for upcoming dance classes with Mina or catch her with her dance crew every Monday at The Beach Hotel for Reggae Night 😀

Beach Kangaroo Campout

Hey Legends

What an epic weekend we had at the campout …. everyone is still buzzing …. one student from the weekend has already paid today to come on the next campout !!! Super keen ….

 

Thanks to all the students who sent the photos in to me… absolute legends !!!!!

The students were greeted by the resident kangaroos on arrival…..

 

 

Learning how to fish was a really awesome experience …. as you can see Aline hasn’t quite grasped the idea of fishing ……. LOL

d430847d-0c1e-4d08-89d6-90369594dc98

Romy, now safe from being caught as a fish, is finally now relaxing …. showing Aline the correct way to fish….’in the water’

2a5b7074-3631-4f81-bb07-3611a6763f2f

The campers stopped for lunch and had an encounter with a Diamond Python….. these snakes are non-venomous. They become most active in November, looking for mates and laying eggs. … As well as being non-poisonous, the Diamond Python is one of the most placid snakes in Australia, rarely hissing or threatening people.

Check her out ……
