January Activity Calendar!

january-calendar-for-blog

After Christmas we have a short break before returning to school on Tuesday 3rd January. We have an exciting month of activities to kick off the start of the new year! These activities are run in both the morning and afternoon especially for our lucky Lexis students.

Every Monday you can stretch out and relax doing Yoga with Stef in the garden from 11-12 and with Fee in Room 8 from 2:15 to 3:15.

On Tuesdays and Wednesdays we alternate the popular activity of Coffee Lounge, which gives students the chance to get to know each other while practicing English, with other fun activities. On the first Tuesday back we will have a BBQ to welcome all our new students, then on the following weeks we will enjoy learning to Skateboard with Flavio, Slackline with Olmo and we have an exciting BWT Travel Bonanza day with special deals and travel prizes to be won! We will finish off the month with the 1-hour Surf Lesson.

On Thursdays we start the month with a 1-hour Surf Lesson with the amazing team at Let’s Go Surfing Byron Bay. We have Job Club the following week to help any students looking to work while they are in Australia. Then there is Aussie Cooking where we will bake some yummy Anzac Biscuits. The last Thursday of the month is Australia Day, which is a public holiday so there will be no school on this day.

On Fridays we will be keeping active and heading to the beach as much as possible to enjoy the Summer in Byron Bay! To start the month we have the Table Tennis Tournament to find out who our new Lexis Champion is, then we have Volleyball and the very Aussie game of Cricket on the following weeks before finishing off the month with a Sandcastle Building Competition (with prizes to be won!).

GIL (Guided Individual Learning) runs every day from 12-1pm and 2-3pm in Room 8. Come along to get help with anything from homework to vocabulary to writing your resume.

We will also continue to enjoy our Student Nights at Cheeky Monkeys every Tuesday night – meet at BWT @ 8pm first to get your drinks, food and fun!

Don’t forget that you can book your 3-hour surf lessons with us anytime at Reception for just $50!

Have a great month!🙂

Coffee Lounge! September 13

Today we held two Coffee Lounge sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.

The morning students enjoyed the challenge of Lexis Jenga, building a tall and precarious tower and answering the questions on each piece.

Through these questions, we discovered that Barbara has been to fourteen different countries, that Julie sings in the shower and that Yuri would travel the world if she won a billion dollars.

The afternoon students had fun with a game of Aussie Heads while enjoying their coffee and TimTams, with everyone taking turns asking YES or NO questions to figure out what the card on their forehead was.

Each student did really well, deducing what their card was with minimal hints, but Samira  gets a special mention for figuring out that she was the Aussie Dollar so quickly, which is a notoriously difficult one to guess!

Coffee Lounge! August 30

At Coffee Lounge this afternoon we enjoyed the sunny, warm day in Byron Bay with a game of Aussie Heads in the garden.

The students took turns trying to figure out what place, animal, item or sport they were by asking questions with yes or no answers.

Everyone did very well and eventually discovered what they were – with the help  of a few clues!

Coffee Lounge! August 2

We had a lovely time at Coffee Lounge this afternoon, enjoying our coffee, TimTams and great conversation!

IMG_4255

Before getting into the conversation part of the afternoon, we first learnt how to eat a TimTam in a truly Australian way – using the biscuit as a straw to drink our coffee. Everyone agreed this was an extremely delicious, though quite messy, way to enjoy TimTams!

IMG_4258

We used conversation cards with interesting and often illuminating questions to answer. These included questions such as “What is your favourite town or city in the world?”, “Have you ever photocopied a part of your body?”, “Have you ever gotten lost while travelling?” and “Describe your outlook on life in six words.”

IMG_4260

Some questions were easy to answer and others were more difficult, but overall it was a great chance to learn some English words and phrases while finding out more about each other!

Coffee Club!

We had another sunny Coffee Club in the garden this afternoon. Lots of students came along for coffee, Tim Tams and a chat!

IMG_20150915_142021196

We used question cards to start our conversations, with questions like “Have you ever done something you regret?” and “What is your favourite movie?” It was a great chance to get to know each other better.
