May in Photos!

WOW and just like that, it is the end of another month.. What a great month it has been! Here is a look back at all of the fun we have had in May!

The wonderful Suzy taught her last yoga class before going on maternity leave. We welcomed our new teacher Jimmy.

Coffee club continued to make us all laugh every Tuesday.

Alejandro was May’s table tennis champion.. Who will it be in June?

I was so impressed by your artistic skills when we painted pot plants.

I always look forward to our afternoons down at the soccer field.. Also I love the support from everyone that comes down to cheer us on! Next month we will claim the trophy back!

Sushi making was fun.. Thanks to Nana and Ai for saving us from a rice disaster!

We had a wonderful Friday afternoon enjoying the sun and hitting the waves on the body boards!

More artistic talent expressed in boomerang painting!

We all had a great boogie for Salsa and Sangria.

Mmmmmmm and that yummy afternoon we had cooking with chocolate and Hongki and Nana’s fantastic cookies.. HAHAHA

And finally all of the amazing weekend activities thanks to Byron Bay Tour Co. and Happy Travels

Cant wait to see what June has in store!

Easter Coffee Club! April 16th

This week we spiced up Coffee Club with hot cross buns to celebrate Easter!

hot cross bun is a spiced sweet bun made with raisins, currants or chocolate. They are marked with a cross on the top, and traditionally enjoyed on Good Friday. The eating of hot cross buns  marks the end of Lent because they are made with dairy products which are forbidden during this period.

Talita, our birthday girl enjoyed her first ever hot cross bun! 🙂

It is safe to say everyone enjoyed the hot cross buns, especially warmed up with butter 🙂

Farewell from Claire!

It is with much sadness I will be leaving my job as Activities and Student Services Officer at Lexis next week 😦

20170811_144824

I have had an AMAZING 2 years with the school and have made lots of brilliant memories ❤ More than this, I have met so many lovely, incredible, interesting people and made great friendships that I know will last beyond me working here.

It has been a huge amount of fun running the activities; wine & cheese tasting being a favourite, but not forgetting… skateboarding, slacklining, cooking, coffee clubs, volleyball at the beach, bake sales for charities, jewellery making, and sometimes I’ve even enjoyed doing the BBQs for 100 hungry students (only when helped by Eric!)!

The two best things about this job though…

  • Meeting and helping students from all over the world; it has been so rewarding ❤  I have really enjoyed learning about other cultures and am now lucky enough to have friends to visit in lots of countries!
  • The wonderful team I got to work with every day ❤

Thank you to everyone who has made this a fantastic place to work and an unforgettable experience. A special thank you to Lisa and Koko, two amazing ladies it has been a pleasure to work alongside every day.

It wasn’t an easy decision to leave somewhere that has brought me so much happiness, but I felt it was time for me to try something new! I will still be in Byron so will probably still see lots of you (normally in Woolworths or at the Rails!), and feel free to message me to meet for coffee or cocktails! Much love ❤

Make a Bag! 28 February

Rather than throwing out your unwanted clothing, why not upcycle it?!

53169340_605461439867883_7151196697610158080_n

That’s what we did here at Lexis Byron last Thursday, making bags from T-shirts!

It’s very easy to do; you simply cut off the sleeves then cut strips along the bottom of the top, turn inside out, tie the strips together than turn it back the right way round…

Or you can have the tassles/ties on the outside!

The bags are great for taking to the beach or using for your grocery/market shop!

Every Monday at 11.30am and Tuesday at 2pm we have Coffee Club; join me or Orla for coffee, Tim Tams, games and conversations!
