It was a lovely hot day in Byron and the beautiful blue water was extremely inviting!

The water was a warm 21 degrees so wetsuits were optional!

Waves were pretty big so the students stayed between the red and yellow flags in front of the lifegaurds, the safest place to be!

Just another glorious day in Byron Bay 🙂

It was a rare rainy day here in Byron Bay; perfect for some indoor activities!

We had the Wii set up, as well as games of Twister, Jenga and cards to keep us entertained and dry!

Jewellery Making! 15 November

Yesterday’s activity was Jewellery Making!

Myself and Harriett showed the students how to make net wrap pendants that they could then make into bracelets, necklaces, key chains or decorations!

They had a selection of beads, stones and shells to choose from and we then gave them a tutorial on how to make the nets to hold them.

It was up to the students how they wanted to finish it off, but we showed them a couple of options including different ways of braiding.

Some students got even more creative and made their own style of bracelets and necklaces!

Every piece made was unique and beautiful, and a great souvenir or gift from their time in Byron!

Beer Tasting! 2 November

Yesterday myself and some of the students enjoyed an early evening activity of Beer Tasting!

We started at 5.30pm so our morning and afternoon students could have a few drinks together!

We had 5 to try: Fat Nerd (Vanilla Porter), Sierra Nevada (Tropical IPA), White Rabbit (Dark Ale), Red Stripe (Lager), Colonial (Pale Ale).

The students had to write down the flavours they could taste, guess where they were from, alcohol percentage and price. There was quite a bit of cheating going on though so we didn’t have a winner!

Beer Tasting

The group was split, with half saying the Tropical IPA was their favourite, and the other half finding it too sweet, preferring the Red Stripe Lager.
