We put on a Sausage Sizzle for all our students to enjoy during their lunch break. It was another beautiful summer’s day here so everyone was able to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine while they snacked on their sausages!

I was joined again by my wonderful BBQ assistant, student Eric, who helped to ensure none of our students went hungry!

Hallowe’en BBQ! 31 October

Today, we had our Hallowe’en BBQ! Everyone gathered promptly out front at 12.15pm, all waiting to sample Claire’s culinary BBQ delights 🙂 Student Eric kindly assisted with the cooking, Lorene provided the party music and Orla and Judit help set up the table of delights!

It’s an amazing day here in Byron Bay – bright, sunny and warm – perfect for eating outside!

Everyone lined up, creating their sandwich with barbecued meat, fresh salad and a variety of sauces and dressing, all washed down with something sweet!

As it was very hot, a lot of students didn’t want to dress up in costume, however we did have some interesting hats and head pieces wandering around, even among the staff! We really loved how one of our students Arisa was dressed in her traditional Japanese Kimono and gave her the chocolate prize for effort! She loves wearing it and welcoming questions about Japanese culture so be sure to ask her about it! 🙂
