End of Cambridge BBQ! 15 March

Today was the last day of studies for our Cambridge First classes and tomorrow we’ll also be saying goodbye to our Cambridge Advanced class!

After 11 weeks of hard work they’d earned themselves a free BBQ!

All of our students were invited to join them to celebrate the end of their course and enjoy a free lunch!

One of our lovely students, Jean, did an excellent job of assisting me with the BBQ and making sure everyone got fed!

We’ll be very sad saying goodbye to all our wonderful Cambridge students tomorrow, but have one last farewell / celebration with beer tasting at 5.30pm!! See you there!

Valentine’s Day! 14 February

In the run up to Valentines Day  ❤️ we had our Secret Valentines box in reception so students could anonymously send messages to their fellow Lexis students and staff!

It wasn’t just for love notes; the students were encouraged to write a sweet message or a thank you note to make someone’s day!

 I had a great time sorting through all the messages, there were some very thoughtful ones in there, and a lot of funny ones too!

Someone even wrote a brilliant message to Tim Tams; many of the students favourite Australian snack!

Tim Tam

Myself and the teachers handed the messages out during the afternoon,

and we showed the students some love by treating them all to a BBQ lunch in the sunshine!

All of Josie’s Cambridge class joined her at the beach, as well as students from our General English classes!

Josie says they all had a brilliant time and stayed at the beach for hours playing!

They were plenty of great shots and lots of fun had!

Easter BBQ! 13th April

Today we had our Easter BBQ!

It was a great way to end the short week and start the long Easter weekend!

The sun was  shining so the students enjoyed their sausages and snacks out on the grass 🙂

We also had chocolate eggs and bunnies hidden around school, well done to those of you who found them; especially those who did so without my help!
