Coffee Club! 5 December

Today at Coffee Club we enjoyed a few rounds of Scattergories with our coffees and Tim Tams!!

For those who aren’t familiar with Scattergories; it’s a fun game to play when you only have a few minutes to spare, but also a game you can play for hours!

You pick different categories and then take it in turns to say a letter (do the alphabet in your head until someone shouts stop). Everyone then has to list something beginning with that letter for each of the categories! The time is up when the first person shouts out that they have a word for each and you then score 10 points if you are the only person with that word, or 5 if someone has the same word!

There were some questionable answers and a heated debate on whether mushrooms were a vegetable, but everyone scored a 10 out of 10 for effort 🙂

It was a rare rainy day here in Byron Bay; perfect for some indoor activities!

We had the Wii set up, as well as games of Twister, Jenga and cards to keep us entertained and dry!

Coffee Club! 21 November

We may soon have to rename ‘Coffee Club’ ‘Uno Club’, as whenever I ask what game the students would like to play this is always the winner!

Myself and regular players Lydie, Charlotte and Maya were joined today by Haruki, Han, Choi and Maxime, who started Lexis just yesterday but is already settling in very well and making friends!

Brunswick BBQ!! 23rd September

Last month BWT (Backpacker World Travel) arranged a special Brunswick BBQ day just for our Lexis students!!

They arranged for the bus to pick everyone up from school in the morning to take them all to Brunswick to enjoy a Saturday in the sun with their Lexis friends 🙂

3-20170923143702_IMG_3889

They stopped at the bottle shop on the way so everyone could stock up on alcohol for the day’s antics!

Once in Brunswick they found a spot on the beach to set up. There they enjoyed drinks, a tasty BBQ and various ball games!

BWT arranged a competition with a Slip ‘N Slide; the students were split into two groups and had to slide to the end and down a glass of goon. The winners from each turn then went on to compete against the other winners until it was down the last 3!

These three lucky students each won amazing prizes courtesy of BWT!

1st Place: Chris – 3 day/2 night Fraser Island trip!!

2nd Place: Oliver – Kiwi Experience pass for the North Island of New Zealand!!

3rd Place: Louis – Great Barrier Reef trip!!

Charles and Zara started the Club with a fantastic presentation. They talked in detail about all the beautiful must see destinations in Australia and the exclusive discounts for Lexis Students.

Zara shared with us her personal photographs and  unforgettable experience traveling the Outback and described the chills she had when visiting Uluru Rock.  This is must for anyone wanting to learn about Australian Aboriginal culture and traditions.

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 🙂
