Pizza Afternoon! July 12th

Today’s activity was supposed to be pizza and video games.. but since it was such a beautiful afternoon we decided to skip the video games and sit outside and enjoy the pizza in the sunshine instead!!

Have a great weekend everyone! Enjoy this beautiful weather. I look forward to seeing you all on Monday.. if not before 😉

Happy Student! Sagiri

The wonderful Sagiri has been a student at Lexis since April. In this time she has made us all laugh and smile with her funny jokes and kind personality. Her time here at Lexis Byron Bay is just about over and we are all very sad she is leaving.

I asked Sagiri some questions about her time in Byron Bay so far.

IMG_3120

Where are you from?

I’m from Japan

Why did you come to Australia?

Because there are a lot of beautiful beaches. I wanted to be friends with people from various countries and I wanted a lot of great experiences.

What is your favourite thing about Byron Bay?

People are warm and kind. They always smile when our eyes meet. I can always feel a lot of happiness.

Is your English improving?

Yes, little by little. Learning English is difficult but fun!

What would you say to someone who is considering studying at Lexis Byron Bay?

You are lucky in Byron Bay, everything is easy-going and enjoyable.. even study!! It is important not to be upset!

What are your plans after you finish studying at Lexis?

I’m going to move to Gold Cost to work. However, I want to return to Byron Bay again in the summer because I love it here and I always want to have fun! 😀

Baking Koala Cupcakes with Kristy! June 20th

Yesterday afternoon’s activity involved our favourite native Australian marsupial, excessive amounts of sugar and a whole lot of creativity!!

KOALA

It was Koala Cupcake day!! 🙂

Koala cupcakes (1)

Unfortunately I missed out on the fun and deliciousness as I was away sick, but thankfully the wonderful and clever Kristy was able to step up and help out!

The end results looked great, well done!

Kristy mentioned that to get the perfect shade of grey for the icing, it helped first mixing the food colouring into a smaller bowl and then adding it to the rest of the icing mixture to prevent it from turning out too dark. A very helpful tip to remember in the future. Thanks Kristy.

img_5321.jpg

After baking the cupcakes, it is important that they cool down before taking on their transformation into Koala’s. Here the students are fanning their cupcakes. 😀 After this technique proved to be too much work, they went into the fridge for a few more minutes, just to be sure they were cool enough.

Then it was time to get creative..

They look so cute and delicious! Next time we will find an alternative to the licorice bullet’s that we used for noses as apparently nobody really liked the taste of them. 🙂 But all in all I am very impressed! I hope you enjoyed eating them as much as you did making them!
