As well as red and white wine, we had grapes and crackers to enjoy with our cheese!

The Apricot and Almond Cream Cheese was a definite favourite and finished within minutes of being put on the table!

Many of the students then headed of to a BBQ at the beach to say a final farewell to some of our students who graduated that day!

Beer Tasting! 19th January

Last Friday we ended our week and started our weekend with Beer Tasting!

Unsurprisingly we had a large number of students turn up for this activity!! Luckily for me teacher Adrienne was on hand to help out 🙂

The students tried 5 different beers and had to guess the Australian state they were brewed in, the alcohol percentage and the price per bottle! Answers below:

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 🙂

Everyone got free bodyboard and wetsuit hire courtesy of Let’s Go Surfing!!

It was another beautifully sunny day here in Byron Bay and the waves were made for bodyboarding!!

They first stopped by the Let’s Go Surfing shop to pick up their boards and get some tips from surfer Blake, before heading to the beach!

After seeing how much fun everyone had on the morning session, Harriett joined the afternoon group in the water! That is until she saw a fin and ran back to the beach!! She should have stayed in though as it turned out to be some of Byron’s residents dolphins that the students then got to share a wave with! What a magical experience!!

As it was 11 aside our players took it in turns to play and spent their time off the pitch doing warm ups and cheering on their teammates!

Also cheering on the team were some fellow Lexis students!
