Eleonora is from Rome, Italy. She is an active person who loves sports and meeting new people. She works as a bartender and needs to speak fluent English for her job. She joins her brother who is already here in Australia and his girlfriend Carla who is also at Lexis with us! She is really excited for this new adventure and experiencing the Australian way of life!

Asa (Asana) is from Japan. She likes yoga and surfing, which are two of the main reasons she chose Byron Bay for her studies! She wants to improve her English so she can find a good job in Tokyo when she returns to Japan!

Catalina is from Chile. She completed her Masters in Physiotherapy and works as a Spa Therapist in a hotel. It has always been her dream to come to Australia and also to speak fluent English, so she decided to combine the two and come to Lexis Byron! She is very happy to be here, describing it as a beautiful country with amazing scenery and friendly people!

Dream Catcher Making! 24 May

We had a creative afternoon making beautiful dream catchers!

First we watched a video from Youtube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vmtkc7FOWLw&t=3s) demonstrating how to make them, and then it was our turn to give it a go!

IMG_3802

It’s quite tricky at first but easy once you get going!

Once our nets were complete we added shells and beads to the centre and hung feathers from the bottom to make them even prettier!

Soccer match against BBELS! 23 May

Yesterday we played Soccer against another of Byron’s local schools!

We lost some of our sign ups due to rain, but still had eleven determined players who weren’t going to be put off by a little bit of bad weather!

After the first 20 minutes the blue skies were back and we were even treated to a beautiful rainbow!

Our team was made up of 8 boys and 3 girls and they all played amazingly together, with great spirit and teamwork.

The students continued to play even as it got dark and the rain came back! Real competitors!!

Well done to Fabio, Joao, Jeff, Cristiano, Sevie, Alex, Benoit, Gabriela, Patrick, Laurene and Helena for securing Lexis a 4 – 1 win!!!

GO TEAM LEXIS!!
