Happy Student – Sina 🦘

Today our Happy Student at Lexis Byron Bay is Sina!

Tell us a little about yourself Sina:
My name is Sina, I’m from Switzerland and I’m 21 years old. Before I came to Byron Bay I was working as a carpenter. I want to learn English because I like to travel and then you have to speak English. I have been in Byron for four weeks.

Why did you choose Byron Bay?
I chose Byron Bay because I was shown photos of the school and Byron and I wanted to go. It’s also the opposite to Switzerland, this is another reason why I wanted to go. It’s easy going and chill.

What were your weaknesses in English before you came to Australia? Tell me more about your teachers and your classes.
Some things in English were hard. My weakness would be grammer, and the use of present or past tense. I had a good teacher and funny class. Michelle is funny and so nice. How she explains everything was very good.

What was your favourite activity?
Jewellery making I think was my favourite. I liked boomerang painting too, though the skill of jewellery making is one that I can do every day.

Tell me about your accomodation/homestay…
I was staying in Suffolk Park and had a very good house mother. She is a very good cook, and would read over my essays and help me with my English. I would also ride my bike to school, it was good and I can get the money back when I sell it.

What are your favourite things to do in Byron?
I love to watch the sunrise in Byron, and I like to do the lighthouse walk.IMG_20191109_095933What is your most magical moment in Byron?
I think the sunrise.

What did you like the most about Lexis Byron?
Well, it’s like school. A relaxing school.IMG_8776What is your advice for people who are thinking about enrolling at Lexis Byron Bay?

Wednesday Afternoon Boomerang Painting! November 20th

Wednesday’s afternoon activity was Boomerang Painting! On such a warm day, we decided to sit outside in the student common area.

We had plenty of paints, brushes, and Aboriginal diagrams to work with and of course,  wooden boomerangs.

We discussed each Aboriginal symbol and it’s meaning as well as working out which colours were most effective.

Beautiful work ladies!

Boomerang Painting 🎨 November 20th

Boomerang Painting took place downstairs in the common area at Lexis Byron Bay!

This is some of the beautiful work created by Sina and Lucia.

IMG_0051.JPG

We listened to Dreamtime music while we created stories on our boomerang canvas.
The students discussed the different symbols, colours and techniques each wanted to try.

IMG_0043

Lucia creating her artwork, and Sina working on her boomerang.

We read through the different types of boomerangs:

  • hunting boomerang
  • returning boomerang
  • cross boomerang

It was decided that what we were working on looked more like the ‘returning boomerang’, though was only for decorative purposes.

IMG_0039

Students also practiced their English while looking at the works in progress.

IMG_0049Sina’s Boomerang: the main feature is the kangaroo. She has only seen one though is hoping to see more on her travels around Australia. Sina has been told that there are hundreds near Melbourne airport!

Lucia’s Boomerang: the central focus on Lucia’s boomerang is the koala. She had great difficulty trying to paint it!

Noosa 2 day Adventure

Hey Legends

This weekend just gone we took some of the Lexis students to Noosa. The tour kicked off at 7am. I can see some of the early morning happy faces in some of the images 🙂 🙂

After checking in at the hostel students then headed to the famous Eumundi Markets. This market has been operating since 1979, it now has over 600 stalls focusing on handmade goods and boast an annual visitation of 1.6 million.

After a busy day driving and a half day tour of Noosa the students chilled at the beach.

The students then spent the night partying, experiencing Noosa nightlife…..I heard some of you were very hung over …….

Day 2 was spent a little hung over but you managed to do the  walk along the headland. The students were lucky to see koalas chilling in the trees.

Thank you to the guides at Byron Bay Touring Co for making this weekend in Noosa so awesome. A massive shout out to the group for sharing their pictures, our guides said you all rocked and know how to party 🙂 🙂
