Beer Tasting! 9 November

Last Friday we ended our school week with Beer Tasting!

The students had 5 different Australian beers to try and for each one they had to guess the state where it was brewed, alcohol percentage, cost and flavours!

What a great way to get the weekend started!!

Cheese & wine tasting – 19 October

Last week, both morning and evening students gathered together for an extra special evening activity of wine and cheese tasting! The sun was out, the wine was flowing, the cheese was disappearing fast and it was Friday – perfect!

We had a range of different cheeses to choose from – Brie, Goats cheese, Edam, Camembert, Gouda, Cheddar, Tasmanian Feta, Spring onion and chive cream cheese, apricot cream cheese… all accompanied by a range of different crackers. For wine, we had a range of reds – Merlot, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon as well as a crisp Pinot Grigio and a soft Rose.

We all had a lot of fun and it was great for all the classes to mingle together, chat about all things cheesy and get ready for the weekend ahead!

Casino Royale! 12 October

On Friday we had our own Casino Royale here at Lexis Byron!

There was a roulette wheel set up but everyone was only interested in competing in the poker tournament!

Eric did a great job of explaining the rules to everyone, with some help from Pablo.

We continued playing until 7pm, when we then counted up our chips to see who had the most…

Daniel was the clear winner, earning himself a 6 pack of beer which he kindly shared with some of his fellow players! It’s been a good month of prizes for Daniel, having won himself a Whitsundays trip from Happy Travels last week!

Beer Tasting! 28 September

Today’s activity was Beer Tasting!!

IMG_6823

I was joined by our new team, the lovely Orla! Orla will be starting with us in the office next week and also running our morning activities. It was a great way to welcome her to the school and for her to get to know some of the students!

We had five different beers to try: Mandarin India Pale Ale (Amanda), Dark Ale (White Rabbit), Stone & Wood (Green Coast), Pale Ale (Colonial) and an IPA (Fixation Obsession).

The students had a taste of each and then guessed the flavours, state where it’s made in Australia, alcohol percentage and price.

Beer Table

There was no clear favourite as there were a few votes for each, but I have a feeling at 6.7% everyone may start buying more of the Mandarin IPA!

A beautiful afternoon at the beach! 14 September

Last Friday myself and some of the students had a lovely afternoon at the beach 🙂

IMG_6324

The activity that day was soccer but the group got split up on the walk down to the beach and we lost those with the ball! They went ahead and had their game of soccer somewhere else on Byron’s beautiful stretch of beach, while we attempted our own game…

Improvising with a rolled up beach towel! Predictably this version of the game didn’t last long but there was plenty of fun and laughter!
