Boomerang Painting!! 19th October

Yesterday here at Lexis Byron Bay we enjoyed a relaxing morning and afternoon of Boomerang Painting!

We had templates and aboriginal symbol meanings to give the students some inspiration, but they all also added their own creative touch!

Boomerangs are a great souvenir for the students to take home from Australia!!

Also a very therapeutic way to spend an hour!!

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!

Wine Tasting!! 18th October

Yesterday we hosted a Wine Tasting activity for our students!

The tastings were at 2pm and 5.30pm so both our morning and afternoon students could enjoy a few drinks after finishing class!

We had 5 wines to try; a mix of White, Dessert, Rose and Red!

Our selected wines were: Chardonnay (Eaglehawk), Moscato (Gossip), Rose (Sacred Hill), Shiraz (Eaglehawk), Merlot (Black Label).

The students then had to guess the alcohol percentage, price and country where the wine was from!

Wine

Mario proved to be quite the wine connoisseur, guessing almost everything right!

 

A fun time was had by all 🙂

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 🙂

Miyu, from Japan, loves to watch movies and listen to music. She works as an Aesthetician but would now like to study Naturopathy so she can help people with their health rather than their appearance, as she feels this is more important. She will study this in Australia after she has improved her English with Lexis over the next 9 months!

Jenny is from Switzerland, where she lives with her boyfriend and their 2 guinea pigs! She enjoys traveling, cooking, running and meeting up with friends. She has worked in the Post Office for eight years and is now the manager there! She wants to improve her English so she can make many new friends on her travels!

Fuka, from Japan, is mum to our lovely homestay officer Koko! After visiting back in August and coming along to some of the school activities she decided to enrol herself for 2 weeks of studies! She has four grandchildren who she would really like to help with their English when she returns to Japan, and then one day bring them all here!

Tifany, from Switzerland, enjoys skiing, running, sports and reading. She works as a teacher for children aged 8 to 10, which keeps her very busy! It was her childhood dream to come to Australia so she is very happy to be here in this beautiful country!

Daniela is from Columbia. She loves to read religious books and also to work out. She works as a physical therapist in a private hospital. She has studied in Colombia and Spain, and also studied English in America for 2 years,  but is hoping her studies here in Australia will now help her to be fluent!

Sharon lives in Switzerland, but her mum is from Israel so she also speaks Hebrew.  She was working in a dental practice but quit to go traveling! She wants to improve her English so she can speak to people from all over the world. She chose Australia for her studies because she loves the beach, warm weather an nature!
