WOW and just like that, it is the end of another month.. What a great month it has been! Here is a look back at all of the fun we have had in May!

The wonderful Suzy taught her last yoga class before going on maternity leave. We welcomed our new teacher Jimmy.

Coffee club continued to make us all laugh every Tuesday.

Alejandro was May’s table tennis champion.. Who will it be in June?

I was so impressed by your artistic skills when we painted pot plants.

I always look forward to our afternoons down at the soccer field.. Also I love the support from everyone that comes down to cheer us on! Next month we will claim the trophy back!

Sushi making was fun.. Thanks to Nana and Ai for saving us from a rice disaster!

We had a wonderful Friday afternoon enjoying the sun and hitting the waves on the body boards!

More artistic talent expressed in boomerang painting!

We all had a great boogie for Salsa and Sangria.

Mmmmmmm and that yummy afternoon we had cooking with chocolate and Hongki and Nana’s fantastic cookies.. HAHAHA

Class trip to the Movies

On Wednesday our Intermediate and FCE class went to Palace Cinema to watch the movie 2040.

cinema

It was about a journey to explore what the planet would look like by the year 2040 while focusing on what is happening now. From the movie we found that there are lots of solutions such as marine permaculture, shared energy, renewable energy, balanced agriculture and female empowerment and education.

We strongly recommend everyone to watch 2040 because it is such a good movie to learn about how we can contribute to a bright future.

Coffee Club! May 14th

It was a great turn out for this weeks coffee club! We had our usual selection of delicious coffee’s and of course everyone’s favourite, Tim Tams.

It was nice to have a catch up with everyone about their weekend and life in Byron. Then we got stuck in to a very serious game of Jenga.

Lexis Jenga is exceptionally fun because each block piece has a question on it so we can all get to know each other better whilst we play.

Serious concentration was required.

Then it was Talita’s turn …. the moment it all came crashing down!

So we played another round while we continued to sip our coffee’s..

Until it was Talita’s turn again…

Haha sorry Talita, but thank you for making us all laugh!! 🙂

Coffee Club happens outside the student lounge every Tuesday at 2pm. Come and join us to chat with new friends and of course, for coffee and Tim Tams!

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 ❤
