Beer Tasting! 22 February

What better way to start the weekend than with a Beer Tasting session…

IMG_1719

That’s what we treated our lovely Lexis students to when they finished class on Friday!

There was 5 different beers to try, all from Australia.

The students had to guess which state in Australia each one was from, the alcohol percentage, price per bottle and the flavours they could taste.

Stone and Wood – Green Coast was a clear favourite; great thing they brew it here in Byron with brewery tours available every day!

Casino Royale! 12 October

On Friday we had our own Casino Royale here at Lexis Byron!

There was a roulette wheel set up but everyone was only interested in competing in the poker tournament!

Eric did a great job of explaining the rules to everyone, with some help from Pablo.

We continued playing until 7pm, when we then counted up our chips to see who had the most…

Daniel was the clear winner, earning himself a 6 pack of beer which he kindly shared with some of his fellow players! It’s been a good month of prizes for Daniel, having won himself a Whitsundays trip from Happy Travels last week!

Beer Tasting! 28 September

Today’s activity was Beer Tasting!!

IMG_6823

I was joined by our new team, the lovely Orla! Orla will be starting with us in the office next week and also running our morning activities. It was a great way to welcome her to the school and for her to get to know some of the students!

We had five different beers to try: Mandarin India Pale Ale (Amanda), Dark Ale (White Rabbit), Stone & Wood (Green Coast), Pale Ale (Colonial) and an IPA (Fixation Obsession).

The students had a taste of each and then guessed the flavours, state where it’s made in Australia, alcohol percentage and price.

Beer Table

There was no clear favourite as there were a few votes for each, but I have a feeling at 6.7% everyone may start buying more of the Mandarin IPA!

September Table Tennis Tournament ’18!

Today we had our monthly Table Tennis Tournament!

We didn’t have as many competitors as usual as the sun was shining and the waves were good, so many of the students were heading to the beach for a surf!

Eric, Jeff, Ibon and Lucas couldn’t resist winning the cold beers though!

They each played against eachother to 11,

Eric VS Lucas: Eric 11-7

Eric VS Jeff: Eric 11-4

Jeff VS Ibon: Jeff 11-3

Ibon VS Lucas: Ibon 11-6

Jeff VS Lucas: Jeff 11-4

Then the points from each of their 3 games were added together to determined the winner…

Ibon: 24

Jeff: 26
