Farewell from Claire!

It is with much sadness I will be leaving my job as Activities and Student Services Officer at Lexis next week 😦

20170811_144824

I have had an AMAZING 2 years with the school and have made lots of brilliant memories ❤ More than this, I have met so many lovely, incredible, interesting people and made great friendships that I know will last beyond me working here.

It has been a huge amount of fun running the activities; wine & cheese tasting being a favourite, but not forgetting… skateboarding, slacklining, cooking, coffee clubs, volleyball at the beach, bake sales for charities, jewellery making, and sometimes I’ve even enjoyed doing the BBQs for 100 hungry students (only when helped by Eric!)!

The two best things about this job though…

  • Meeting and helping students from all over the world; it has been so rewarding ❤  I have really enjoyed learning about other cultures and am now lucky enough to have friends to visit in lots of countries!
  • The wonderful team I got to work with every day ❤

Thank you to everyone who has made this a fantastic place to work and an unforgettable experience. A special thank you to Lisa and Koko, two amazing ladies it has been a pleasure to work alongside every day.

It wasn’t an easy decision to leave somewhere that has brought me so much happiness, but I felt it was time for me to try something new! I will still be in Byron so will probably still see lots of you (normally in Woolworths or at the Rails!), and feel free to message me to meet for coffee or cocktails! Much love ❤
