Volleyball! 1 February

Last Friday we headed to Byron’s main beach for a game of Volleyball!

After a week of glorious sunshine the sky was slightly overcast, but the temperature was still very high, with the students having to take a dip in the ocean to cool down between games.

There were 22 students who came along to play so they were split into three teams, taking it in turns to play against one another.

We got to the beach just after 2pm and the students were having so much fun they had to rush back when they realised it was nearly 6pm and the net had to be returned before school closed!

Morning Beach Picnic! January 30th

Last Wednesday morning started out with grey, cloudy skies but the sun came out just in time for our beach picnic! We met at 11am and headed towards Main Beach, here in Byron. It was super hot out so we found a lovely place on the grass area, under the shade of a tree. We had beautiful views, with the sea right in front of us. The best view in Byron! 😀

Our tasty picnic was made up of snacks such as blueberries, strawberries, crackers with an assorted cheese plate, French onion dip, crisps, orange juice and some sweet lamingtons to finish!

We all chilled out in the shade, listening to music (on the speaker that Moses kindly brought! 🙂 ) and chatted about our lives at home, here in Byron and about all of our future travel plans 😀

Bodyboarding! 24 January

Yesterday we enjoyed free bodyboard hire, courtesy of the wonderful team at Let’s Go Surfing!

The students were having too much fun getting ready to go into the water that by time they’d sun-creamed up, I’d taken some photos and Lara had thrown some sand around, it was time for me to head back to school!

I managed to get one quick shot of them in the water before leaving them in the safety of the lifeguard zone. I can imagine there was just as much laughter in the water as there was out of it though 🙂

Body Boarding! 29 November

Last Thursday I took a group of our students down to the beach for some free body board hire, courtesy of the lovely team at Let’s Go Surfing!

The girls all had their bikes to cycle down to the beach and, not wanting to leave me trailing behind walking, Lara convinced me to jump on the back of her bike! It is up there as one of my most terrifying experiences and I’m pretty sure she was going in the potholes on purpose, however in between the squeals of terror there was also lots of laughter and much quicker than going by foot!

The girls posed for some photos before heading into the surf 🙂

The weather was glorious so there was no need for wetsuits and the girls jumped straight into the beautiful blue ocean!

It looked so much fun jumping and riding the waves, I’ll definitely be joining them next time!

Body boarding! 29 November

Today’s activity was body boarding and what an amazing day we had for it! Everyone was so eager to get started that they were all ready and waiting at reception before 11am! We had a great turn out, over twenty students in total 🙂

All but two of the group braved the water, which happened to be full of seaweed today!

The water was the perfect temperature, especially with the heat of the morning sun 🙂

Here are some shots of them in action in the water…

Beach Games! 2 November

We are loving the beautiful summer weather here in Byron Bay!!

Last Friday we made the most of the sunshine by heading to one of Byron’s beautiful beaches for some fun in the sun 🙂

Orla took the morning group down and they enjoyed a game of bowls and a bit of volleyball practice.

I then took our afternoon group once they had finished their classes for the week. Everyone was in great spirits and excited for a weekend of wonderful weather ahead!

We had a practice on the beach first while we waited for everyone to arrive, then headed over to the volleyball courts at one of our student’s hostels.

It was my first time playing volleyball and although I managed to get a few shots in, it’s safe to say I’m not a natural! I had lots of fun playing with the students though and they were all really patient and encouraging. I’m already looking forward to playing again!

After a couple of hours I had to return to school, just as more of our students arrived! I left them there to continue playing into the early evening 🙂
