Yesterday we all met in the student lounge for our Jewellery Making activity. We had a range of different beads and shells to choose from. Everyone could get as creative as they liked but I gave them some tips and ideas to help them too.

Thanks to Kristy for the egg boxes! They were perfect for separating the beads 😉

Hiroshima Juniors Surf Lesson @ The Wreck, Byron Bay – March 28

Header

This morning we hit the beach for our second surf lesson! It was a different kind of day – not as sunny, but the clouds and light were beautiful on the beach.

Some of the students returned to do a surf lesson, while the rest were happy to swim, walk the beach and pick interesting rocks and shells 🙂

IMG_2842

Wet-suits ready to go!

Blake from Lets Go Surfing picked us up promptly at 9am, dropping us to their shop by the beach. Once everyone got fitted with their boards and wet-suits, we were ready to hit the waves!

IMG_2847

On our way to the beach

Everyone had a quick dip in the sea to cool down before the lesson.

We had the lovely Amy as our instructor today and she went through all the important points, tips and safety instructions before they were ready to hit the waves.

While they were preparing for surf, the others went for another dip!

Ready for the waves!!!

We were later joined by Lexis students Nico and Anselmo!

And a nice hot burger and chips to warm up afterwards! 🙂

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! 😀
