Boomerang Painting!! 19th October

Yesterday here at Lexis Byron Bay we enjoyed a relaxing morning and afternoon ofย 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!!

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Lighthouse Walk – Mondays @ 2pm!

Every Monday the delightful Zara from BWT (Backpacker World Travel) leads a lighthouse walk for our Lexis students!

The walk is designed to help our new students get to know the area, as she first takes them through town and shows them where the banks, post office, supermarkets and good places to go out are!

Any and everyone is welcome to join though! Just meet out the front of school at 2pm ๐Ÿ™‚

From town you’ll then head up to the iconic Byron Bay lighthouse, past the most Easterly Point in Australia, to spectacular views of the beaches and ocean!

So far on the walk students have been lucky enough to spot whales, dolphins and a koala with it’s baby!!

Cooking with Bianca!! 11th October

After it’s popularity last month Lexis student and Chef Bianca kindly agreed to host another cooking class for us!

This time she showed us how to make a sweet, simple, quick, cheap, tasty snack!! Everything you could ever want!

She started by giving everyone some fruit to cut (strawberries, kiwis, bananas, berries, and apples), whilst she made a warm mixture of condensed milk, coconut and cream!

We all then went outside and she demonstrated the best way to present and layer our ingredients onto toast, explaining what flavours and colours work well together to make it look good, as well as taste good!

It was absolutely delicious; so much so that none of us cared that we had nutella all over our faces!! Renata, while enjoying her second, described it as ‘the best day of here life’!

Luckily Bianca loves sharing her passion and knowledge of cooking with others as her fellows students have asked for this to be a regular activity! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
