Boomerang Painting 🎨 November 20th

Boomerang Painting took place downstairs in the common area at Lexis Byron Bay!

This is some of the beautiful work created by Sina and Lucia.

We listened to Dreamtime music while we created stories on our boomerang canvas.
The students discussed the different symbols, colours and techniques each wanted to try.

Lucia creating her artwork, and Sina working on her boomerang.

We read through the different types of boomerangs:

  • hunting boomerang
  • returning boomerang
  • cross boomerang

It was decided that what we were working on looked more like the ‘returning boomerang’, though was only for decorative purposes.

Students also practiced their English while looking at the works in progress.

Nanami is from Japan. In her free time she likes to play basketball, soccer and baseball. She also likes photography.

In her future she hopes to be a tour guide in her home town, Okinaw.

Luc is from Switzerland. His hobbies include diving, swimming, snorkeling and gaming. He decided to come to Australia to refresh his English because it is the perfect place for him to be able to travel and explore. After his time at Lexis Byron Bay, Luc plans on going to the great barrier reef and then onto Indonesia and other countries in the region, before returning to Switzerland to continue his studies.

Monica is from Brazil. She loves music! In her home town she plays guitar at her church. She also loves to spend time at the beach and is always in a positive, happy mood. She works as a beautician in Brazil. Improving her English is very important for her because she hopes to work in Day Spa’s around the world and on cruise ships.

Eva is from Spain. Her interests include yoga, dancing and anything to do with the ocean, like swimming and surfing. She has been living in Sydney for the past 6 months and has loved it. Her main priority when coming to Australia was to be happy and she is doing exactly that 🙂

Coffee Club! May 14th

It was a great turn out for this weeks coffee club! We had our usual selection of delicious coffee’s and of course everyone’s favourite, Tim Tams.

It was nice to have a catch up with everyone about their weekend and life in Byron. Then we got stuck in to a very serious game of Jenga.

Lexis Jenga is exceptionally fun because each block piece has a question on it so we can all get to know each other better whilst we play.

Serious concentration was required.

Then it was Talita’s turn …. the moment it all came crashing down!

So we played another round while we continued to sip our coffee’s..

Until it was Talita’s turn again…

Haha sorry Talita, but thank you for making us all laugh!! 🙂

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