Graduation! 16th June

Congratulations to our six General English students graduating from Lexis Byron Bay this week!

 

Graduation

Sakiko from Japan graduates from Josie’s Upper Intermediate class after an incredible year of studying at Lexis. She heads to New Zealand to travel, before heading to Perth for a short stint at our Lexis school there. Since her first day here in June 2016 she has gained an incredible amount of confidence in her speaking and listening. She has been a very dedicated student and her progress has been impressive. Her teachers really enjoyed teaching her due to her hard work and positive attitude. Have a wonderful trip to New Zealand and good luck with your future studies in Perth – and with your Gold Coast Marathon!

Nil from Spain (Catalonia) graduates from Josie’s Upper Intermediate class, having completed his FCE course with Paul. Nil has been with us since September and has been a fantastic member of the school – getting really involved in all the activities and taking every opportunity Byron has to offer. He leaves us with a great level of English: a really good grasp of grammar and an impressive vocabulary. He will be sorely missed by us all here!

grad 3

Madoka from Japan graduates from Michelle’s Elementary class. She has been a very motivated student and as a result he has achieved fantastic exam results throughout the course. She has participated very well in speaking activities and her speaking skills have improved a lot. She is off to travel around Australia with Kensaku to find all the best surf spots. It has been a delight to get to know you Madoka – All the best!

Kensaku from Japan graduates from Michelle’s Elementary class. Michelle expressed what a pleasure it had been to teach Kensaku, who would tackle each daunting task with enthusiasm. He has really improved his speaking, writing and listening abilities. Keep practicing English with your lovely wife Madoka as you seek out surf spots up the Coast!

Wahei from Japan graduates from Michelle’s Elementary class, after 4 weeks of study. Despite only a short period of study, Wahei has improved greatly in all areas of English, especially his speaking ability. He has participated well in class activities. He is off to travel and surf around Australia. Have a wonderful time Wahei!

March Activities!

March activs

There are only a few days of February left, which means it’s time to announce our afternoon activities for March!

We’ll have yoga with Stefanie every Monday from 2.15-3.15 in Room 8.

On Tuesdays we’ll enjoy coffee, Tim Tams and conversation at Coffee Lounge (and the week before Easter you’ll have chance to try Hot Cross Buns, a traditional Easter food!)

Wednesdays will be varied – Marcella from BWT will be giving a travel talk, we’ll have a table tennis tournament, we’ll get artistic during our Aboriginal art and boomerang painting activity, we’ll cook some delicious treats during Easter Cooking and at the end of the month we’ll do some beer tasting.

Thursdays will alternate between a movie showing with ice cream or popcorn, and Job Club where you can work on your CV, look for jobs and ask any job-related questions.

Finally, on Fridays we’ll have beach volleyball, a BBQ to celebrate the end of the Cambridge course, a bike ride and swimming adventure at Tallow beach, and beach cricket.

We’ll also continue to have our Tuesday student nights at Cheeky Monkey’s with free food and drinks plus plenty of games, dancing and socialising.

Don’t forget you can book surf lessons with us at reception (available most days at 2pm with Gaz at Style Surf).

We have two public holidays in March for Easter, so school will be closed on Good Friday (25th March) and Easter Monday (28th March).
