28 NEW STARTERS!
Today’s activity was Sushi Making, which is always popular here at Lexis Byron!
I printed out instructions for how to make the rice, but luckily some of our lovely Japanese students stepped in to tell us how it’s really done!
Juliana, from Brazil, also told us about how they make their sushi in Brazil…sweet! Lots of us were queuing up to try her strawberry filled rolls!
Everyone else had more savoury options to fill theirs! These included tuna, salmon, cucumber, carrot, cream cheese, cucumber and avocado!
We all had a fun afternoon and nice tasty treat at the end!
Thank you to our Japanese teachers 🙂

Yesterday we had a lovely afternoon making jewellery here at Lexis Byron!
I showed the students how to make net wrap pendants, that can then be turned into necklaces, bracelets, key chains, bag accessories or just decoration!
They also made some of their own designs using the beads, shells and jewels available to them!
Last Friday we had a Casino afternoon here at Lexis Byron Bay!
Lexis Noosa kindly lent us their poker mat & chips and here at Lexis Byron we got a new roulette wheel for the occasion!
At one end of the table we had Jeff leading the Poker Tournament,
and at the other I was in charge of Roulette, with Dana doing an excellent job as the dealer.
All of our students had been given vouchers to exchange for $100 worth of chips, with the person finishing with the most winning a 6 pack of beer!
Our poker players attempted to keep their poker faces by wearing sunglasses, but couldn’t keep serious for long enough!
Crisps and nuts were provided to keep the students energy up, and they also had brigadeiro (traditional Brazilian desert) which they had made during their Options class!
The poker tournament was going on for quite some time, so as the only two players left with chips Luis and Lucas decided to share the winners prize:
The afternoon was great fun and I’m already looking forward to doing it again soon!
