It was great start to the weekend hanging out at the beach with yummy snacks and great company!  We headed down to the beach around 11:00 am very hungry and all excited  to relax in the sunshine!

Jenny and Sharron spotted some Byron wildlife whilst walking to the beach!

When we arrived at the beach it didn’t take long before all the cheese and bread had been eaten and our stomachs were full.

We had some great conversations about our future plans and fun experiences in Australia. The boys got competitive with the last of the grapes and tomatoes to see who could catch the most in their mouth.

There was a lots of grapes and tomatoes flying through the air!

Overall it was a great morning and left us all really happy and ready for afternoon classes!

Boomerang Painting!! 19th October

Yesterday here at Lexis Byron Bay we enjoyed a relaxing morning and afternoon of Boomerang Painting!

We had templates and aboriginal symbol meanings to give the students some inspiration, but they all also added their own creative touch!

Boomerangs are a great souvenir for the students to take home from Australia!!

Also a very therapeutic way to spend an hour!!

They stopped at the bottle shop on the way so everyone could stock up on alcohol for the day’s antics!

Once in Brunswick they found a spot on the beach to set up. There they enjoyed drinks, a tasty BBQ and various ball games!

Wine Tasting!! 18th October

Yesterday we hosted a Wine Tasting activity for our students!

The tastings were at 2pm and 5.30pm so both our morning and afternoon students could enjoy a few drinks after finishing class!

We had 5 wines to try; a mix of White, Dessert, Rose and Red!

Our selected wines were: Chardonnay (Eaglehawk), Moscato (Gossip), Rose (Sacred Hill), Shiraz (Eaglehawk), Merlot (Black Label).

The students then had to guess the alcohol percentage, price and country where the wine was from!

Mario proved to be quite the wine connoisseur, guessing almost everything right!

 

A fun time was had by all 🙂

Volleyball!! 13 October

On Friday afternoon we headed to the beach for a game of volleyball in the beautiful sunshine!!

There was a slight malfunction with the net but the students displayed great teamwork in resolving this!!

Once the net was up and secure the competition began…

Upon seeing how much fun we have having some fellow beachgoers asked to join and the students happily welcomed them into the game!

After all their jumping around in the heat I made sure I had a cold beer (coke for Katjana!) waiting for them all 🙂

Flamenco Dancing with Alba!!!

 

Last night we had so much fun Flamenco dancing with our amazing dance teacher Alba! Everyone got involved shaking their hips, clapping their hands and kicking their feet!

Flamenco dancing is a very popular dance throughout Spain and it reflects a lot of Spanish culture. We feel very luck to have Alba at Lexis sharing with us a part of her home culture and important steps to a basic Flamenco routine.

By the end of the hour we all looked semi professional and had big smiles on our faces!!

We hope to see Alba again so we can continue to practice our moves and shake our hips to some great Spanish music!
