Boomerang Painting! September 19th

Yesterday afternoon’s activity was Boomerang Painting.

It was a stunning afternoon so we decided to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine!

 In Aboriginal culture it is common to see the style of painting where a lot of tiny dots are painted to create a specific shape. These shapes or symbols often represent things relevant to aboriginal culture.

Fabbi had the brilliant idea to bring along some cotton-tips. We used these to make the perfect tiny dots. I was so impressed!! They look just like the ones you can buy in a store. I hope you keep them as a nice memory from your time here in Australia and at Lexis Bryon Bay.

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 🙂

Sushi Making! September 13th

Friday afternoon’s activity was the art of Sushi Making.

There was some discussion in the beginning about the best method to cook the rice. We decided to use the rice cookers and hope for the best. They have proven to be unreliable in the past, but lucky for us, this time, they worked perfectly!! After the sushi rice was cooked, we added rice vinegar, caster sugar and salt to make the perfect sticky consistency for sushi rolls.

While the rice was cooking, we prepared the vegetables, salmon and tuna. We sliced carrots, capsicum, cucumber and avocado into long strips. We also added mayonnaise to the tuna for flavour.

Then it was time to roll..

We used cling film on our bamboo mats to prevent the yaki nori (seaweed) from sticking.

IMG_6397 (17)

We placed some rice on the bottom 1/4 of the yaki nori and then added our choice of fillings on top. We then simply rolled the mats to create our masterpieces!

We had pickled ginger, soy sauce, wasabi and mayonnaise to compliment our sushi.

Everyone enjoyed their fresh sushi. Easy to make + delicious! Whats not to love? ❤
