Boomerang Painting!! 19th October

Yesterday here at Lexis Byron Bay we enjoyed a relaxing morning and afternoon of Boomerang Painting!

We had templates and aboriginal symbol meanings to give the students some inspiration, but they all also added their own creative touch!

Boomerangs are a great souvenir for the students to take home from Australia!!

Also a very therapeutic way to spend an hour!!

Noemi, from Switzerland, graduates from Upper Intermediate. Her teacher Claudia has really enjoyed having her in class and described her as a conscientious student who contributed well to all class discussions. All her hard work and efforts have paid off with her improving all areas of her English during her 4 weeks here at Lexis. Good luck for the future Noemi!

Luke (Kyoung Joo), from Korea, graduates from Mel and Kristy’s Intermediate class. He started studying at Lexis Byron Bay back in January and has progressed from Elementary to Intermediate, with a quick trip home in between!

Brunswick BBQ!! 23rd September

Last month BWT (Backpacker World Travel) arranged a special Brunswick BBQ day just for our Lexis students!!

1-20170923114641_IMG_3879

They arranged for the bus to pick everyone up from school in the morning to take them all to Brunswick to enjoy a Saturday in the sun with their Lexis friends 🙂

3-20170923143702_IMG_3889

They stopped at the bottle shop on the way so everyone could stock up on alcohol for the day’s antics!

Once in Brunswick they found a spot on the beach to set up. There they enjoyed drinks, a tasty BBQ and various ball games!

2-20170923143637_IMG_3888

BWT arranged a competition with a Slip ‘N Slide; the students were split into two groups and had to slide to the end and down a glass of goon. The winners from each turn then went on to compete against the other winners until it was down the last 3!

These three lucky students each won amazing prizes courtesy of BWT!

1st Place: Chris – 3 day/2 night Fraser Island trip!!

2nd Place: Oliver – Kiwi Experience pass for the North Island of New Zealand!!

3rd Place: Louis – Great Barrier Reef trip!!

4-20170923153424_IMG_3892

BWT will be planning more of these weekend trips in the near future so be sure to sign up! It’s a great way to make the most of your time in Byron (and Australia if you win a prize!!) and make new friends 🙂

Wine Tasting!! 18th October

Yesterday we hosted a Wine Tasting activity for our students!

The tastings were at 2pm and 5.30pm so both our morning and afternoon students could enjoy a few drinks after finishing class!

We had 5 wines to try; a mix of White, Dessert, Rose and Red!

Our selected wines were: Chardonnay (Eaglehawk), Moscato (Gossip), Rose (Sacred Hill), Shiraz (Eaglehawk), Merlot (Black Label).

The students then had to guess the alcohol percentage, price and country where the wine was from!

Wine

Mario proved to be quite the wine connoisseur, guessing almost everything right!

 

A fun time was had by all 🙂

Volleyball!! 13 October

On Friday afternoon we headed to the beach for a game of volleyball in the beautiful sunshine!!

There was a slight malfunction with the net but the students displayed great teamwork in resolving this!!

Once the net was up and secure the competition began…

Upon seeing how much fun we have having some fellow beachgoers asked to join and the students happily welcomed them into the game!

After all their jumping around in the heat I made sure I had a cold beer (coke for Katjana!) waiting for them all 🙂
