Coffee Club! 15 May

It’s so lovely to be back at Lexis Byron after a little trip back to the UK! I feel extremely lucky to have a job that I can look forward to coming back to, this is all thanks to the wonderful staff and students I get to spend my days with 🙂

Today at Coffee Club Judit, one of our Spanish students, shared two games with us.

I won’t go into details as it involves everyone having to work something out, and we can hopefully play it again one day with some new students! Let’s just say lots of fun was had, especially when most of the group had figured out the pattern!!

Join me next week for more games, coffee and Tim Tams!!

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!!

1-20170923114641_IMG_3879

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!

2-20170923143637_IMG_3888

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!!

BWT will be planning more of these weekend trips in the near future so be sure to sign up! It’s a great way to make the most of your time in Byron (and Australia if you win a prize!!) and make new friends 🙂
