Boomerang Painting! March 27th

Header

Today we had the very fun and creative activity of Boomerang painting! Our Hiroshima Juniors joined with  their classmates and together, we all painted our own individual boomerang.

Everyone ready to start! 🙂

I had some painted boomerangs to show as examples, as well as some information about the meaning behind all the symbols – an interesting insight into the traditional Aboriginal style, used to tell stories through the artists paintings.

See everyone concentrating hard on their masterpieces! 😀

Make a Bag! 28 February

Rather than throwing out your unwanted clothing, why not upcycle it?!

That’s what we did here at Lexis Byron last Thursday, making bags from T-shirts!

It’s very easy to do; you simply cut off the sleeves then cut strips along the bottom of the top, turn inside out, tie the strips together than turn it back the right way round…

Or you can have the tassles/ties on the outside!

The bags are great for taking to the beach or using for your grocery/market shop!

Beer Tasting! 22 February

What better way to start the weekend than with a Beer Tasting session…

That’s what we treated our lovely Lexis students to when they finished class on Friday!

There was 5 different beers to try, all from Australia.

The students had to guess which state in Australia each one was from, the alcohol percentage, price per bottle and the flavours they could taste.

Stone and Wood – Green Coast was a clear favourite; great thing they brew it here in Byron with brewery tours available every day!

Coffee Club! January 29th

Last week, we had our last coffee club for the month of January! We gathered as usual outside the student lounge, sitting  under shade from the hot sun. We all sipped coffees/teas and chatted about life in Byron. For some of the group, it was their final week (we will miss you guys!) so we chatted about their highlights of studying in Lexis and living in Byron Bay. (There were many! 🙂 )

We also got into a serious game of Jenga! This one is extra fun for our Lexis students as each block has an English question attached to it – perfect for getting to know everyone better 🙂

 

The moment it all came tumbling down… (Sorry Nicol!!! 😀 )

 

Coffee Club happens outside the student lounge every Monday at 11.30am AND every Tuesday at 2pm. Come and join us to chat with new friends and of course, for coffee and Tim Tams! 🙂

Morning Beach Picnic! January 30th

Last Wednesday morning started out with grey, cloudy skies but the sun came out just in time for our beach picnic! We met at 11am and headed towards Main Beach, here in Byron. It was super hot out so we found a lovely place on the grass area, under the shade of a tree. We had beautiful views, with the sea right in front of us. The best view in Byron! 😀

Our tasty picnic was made up of snacks such as blueberries, strawberries, crackers with an assorted cheese plate, French onion dip, crisps, orange juice and some sweet lamingtons to finish!

We all chilled out in the shade, listening to music (on the speaker that Moses kindly brought! 🙂 ) and chatted about our lives at home, here in Byron and about all of our future travel plans 😀
