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 🙂

A beautiful afternoon at the beach! 14 September

Last Friday myself and some of the students had a lovely afternoon at the beach 🙂

The activity that day was soccer but the group got split up on the walk down to the beach and we lost those with the ball! They went ahead and had their game of soccer somewhere else on Byron’s beautiful stretch of beach, while we attempted our own game…

Improvising with a rolled up beach towel! Predictably this version of the game didn’t last long but there was plenty of fun and laughter!

First we had a quick game of South America VS Japan, with Japan having a small advantage with 7 extra players!

The students then split into three teams of 5, taking turns to play against eachother.

Keeping themselves entertained whilst waiting for their next turn!

After an hour of playing there was time for a us to quickly dip our feet in the ocean to cool off before heading back to school!
