Soccer! September 18th

Wednesday afternoon we had our scheduled Soccer match against Byron Bay English Language School (BBELS). On this particular afternoon it was also Chilean Independence Day. To celebrate, the students decided to cook a BBQ and enjoy some traditional Chilean music at the student accommodation.. It was a great celebration, but sadly, this meant that not many students were up for playing soccer..

Lucky for us, BBELS had a great turn out and those students who were keen to play could still enjoy a game. We started by choosing our teams, mixing the Lexis students with the BBELS. It was a fantastic game to watch, as there were many skilled players.

We played four 15 minute quarters. Naoki scored the last goal to make the final score 4 all.. Of course we couldn’t finish on a tie so we had one more 10 minute tie breaker round which was intense to watch.

On the walk home we meet this cute little guy who just topped off the lovely afternoon!

Thanks to our awesome students who made it down to play. We will have another game next month against BBELS, and possibly a beach volleyball game as well. Keep an eye on the activity calendar for more information 🙂
