Carer Needed, BYRON BAY

Hello there!

My name is Matthew Hartley.

I am a C5/6 quadriplegic. Right now I need some new employees to cover a variety of shifts. I normally give people two shifts each, but occasionally three. This is to avoid my getting caught out if someone is ill or otherwise unavailable.

This being the case, I would probably want to employ at least two people possibly three. There will be one morning shift and six evening shifts.

All Shifts $30ph

Morning

SUN: 7am – 2pm

Evening

SAT – THU: 5pm-9pm (ish)

Ideally you would work two shifts for example Saturday and Sunday evening or Sunday Morning and Thursday night. It is not a good idea to work Sunday morning and Sunday night.

It would be good if you have some experience but not absolutely essential. It is important to know in advance that the job does involve some personal medical procedures that are not for the squeamish eg. catheterisation. It’s not much fun, but life goes on.

You must have an ABN.

Welcome to Our New Starters – 27 July 2015

DSCN0183

New starters Mirko from Switzerland and Marcel from Germany (back) and Yuki from Japan (front) are all doing the Teenage Residential Surf Camp with Rodolphe (far right) who started last week.

This week, Lexis English welcomes 6 new starters: Mirko from Switzerland, Marcel from Germany, Doen from Korea, Kennida (Kenya) from Italy, and Junya and Yuki from Japan.

Doen, from Korea, is here for 5 weeks before she heads up to Lexis Noosa to study Cambridge FCE. She studies Fashion Design at university in Korea but is taking a year out to learn English and discover the Australian culture.

Junya, from Japan will study at Lexis English for twelve weeks. He has already been in Australia for nearly two months and has spent that time travelling in the North and working as a fruit-picker in Bundaberg. He told me that he wants to learn English so that he can travel the world.

Kenya, from Italy has been in Australia for nearly a year. She also has a job in Byron Bay at Chichette’s Italian Restaurant. She will study at Lexis for four weeks, initially, but may stay longer. She likes playing tennis and dancing.

Mirko, Marcel and Yuki are all here doing our Teen Surf Camp, where they study English in the morning and learn to surf in the afternoon.

Mirko, from Switzerland, is here for two weeks. He is already sporty, as he likes skating, skiing and mountain biking so he should find surfing no problem! In the future, he wants to be a school teacher.

Marcel, from Germany, is only at Lexis for one week. However, his English is already really good because he studies at an international school. He is a keen skateboarder and brought his long board to Byron Bay to help him get around.

Finally, Yuki arrived late last night from Japan. It’s his first time in Australia, first time surfing and first time at English school! Even though he understands little, so far he is always smiling and seems to be having a good time.

We really hope you all enjoy your stay at Lexis English. Welcome!

Vicente, Omar and Jacapo in the Gold Coast with other Lexis students: Alvaro, Raphael, Livia, Marco, Simone and Jose.

Vicente, Omar and Jacopo met when they started at Lexis on the same day nearly four weeks ago. From that time on, they have been inseparable and have certainly made the most of their time in Australia by joining our surfing program (Vicente) visiting the Gold Coast and Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary (all of them), going scuba diving (all of them) and visiting Sydney (Omar) as well as taking part in many school activities.

Today, I asked them a few questions about what they have enjoyed most about their holidays.

Vicente joins in the Skateboarding workshop on his first day at Lexis

 Vicente Plaza Rincorn ( 16 – Spain)

“Last year, I was in Lexis Noosa and so this year I decided to try another Lexis school. I decided on Byron because in pictures it looks amazing and because of the surfing too. My surfing has really improved during my time here. We surfed at a number of different beaches including Main Beach and Lennox Head. For me, Main Beach had the best waves. I liked my classes because they are different from studying in Spain, where you are taught in Spanish. There’s a lot more speaking and listening practice, which I enjoy more than grammar. On my first day in homestay I felt unsure because I didn’t know anyone or anything, but soon I  discovered that they were nice, friendly people who would help me with anything. The best things about coming to Byron Bay, for me, were the scuba diving, which I really enjoyed and the friends that I’ve made.”

IMG_4418

Omar Cisse Ochoa  (17 – Spain)

“I wanted to come to Byron Bay because I’d heard it was small and relaxed and difficult to get lost. I liked my classes because normally studying English is boring for me but this was better. My homestay family were really lovely and had a very playful and friendly young son called Jack.I enjoyed all my excursions, even though Sydney was very short. My only regret is that the nightclubs looked so good but we were too young to get into them.”

IMG_4377

Jacapo took second place in the Lexis Byron Bay fiercely fought Ping Pong Tournament

Jacapo Saccocci (16 – Italy)

“I chose Byron Bay because it was small and had beautiful beaches. I wasn’t disappointed. At Lexis, I had a good teacher and my homestay family were great and helped me whenever I had any problems or questions. I enjoyed all activities but, for me, scuba-diving was the best thing. It was a really good experience and one that I couldn’t have in my country.”
