Halloween Party🕸️🕷️!! October 31st

Thursday’s activity was a You { Murderer } 🎃. We had Hip Hop dancing with Mina and Face Painting! It was held in room 8 at 5:30pm and all students were welcome.

Mina
is an amazing Hip Hop teacher who brought her skills along to get the party started. As it was Halloween we thought the best dance to start with was You { Murderer }.

Warm-up is always essential before a the masterpiece.

Getting the hang of things😆

While all this was going on, we had a team of students getting involved in the face painting event🧟‍♀️🦇🕷️

Getting ready to perform!

Hello everyone, my name is Dianna and if you haven’t already seen me around campus, I’ll be happily replacing the wonderful Alisha as Activities and Student Service Officer while she’s on maternity leave.

IMG_1403[1]

I grew up in Christchurch, New Zealand and had been living in Sydney, Australia for almost 18 years. I decided to move to idyllic Byron Bay just over a year ago and have been loving it ever since. Even though I love New Zealand I definitely call Australia my home and hope to stay in the Byron region indefinitely.

IMG_1949[1].JPG

My passion is travelling and every year I like to book a trip somewhere new. I’ve been lucky enough to do two trips this year where I spent a month in Italy and then two weeks in Scotland. When I’m not travelling I love to keep fit with biking and running. If I have any spare time I will usually spend it doing a craft like jewellery making, or macrame plus I love to read. I’m also obsessed with Japanese food!

If you need to ask me anything, come see me! I’ll be in the office everyday or running the activities. I look forward to meeting you all and having a chat.

Job Hunting Tips from our Lexis Students!

job-search

We recently spoke with six of our students here at Lexis Byron Bay, to ask them a few questions about their part-time jobs. We found out where they work, what they like about their jobs and working in Byron and also, what their dream jobs would be…

Arriving in a new place, meeting new people, starting school as well as having to find a job can be difficult! Thanks to these students, we have some tips for our current and future students, to help with the headache of finding a job. Thanks to Judith, Leo, Ania, Maria, Pedro and Lucas for the tips and positive vibes! 😉

WAS IT HARD TO FIND YOUR JOB AND WHAT DID YOU DO TO GET IT?

  • No, it wasn’t too hard! Byron is small but you have lots of options for work. Everybody always finds a job! It really helps to be positive and focused.
  • It wasn’t too easy! I spent many weeks searching and bringing my CV to every store and restaurant.
  • When I arrived in Byron it was tricky to find a job as it was Winter season here, so a bit quiet, but I didn’t give up! I went to many places and gave in my CV and after a few weeks, got my job!
  • No, it wasn’t hard to find a job! My friend told me she was leaving her job at Orgasmic Falafel and asked if I would like to take over. This was the same for another job a few months ago, my friend was leaving his position at an Italian restaurant in town. I also got some cleaning work at my accommodation after suggesting some ways to make the public spaces better and cleaner for everyone. As I am a long term student here, I was also approached about some cleaning work here in Lexis.
  • I found a job on my first week in Byron! I recommend making a CV that is very personal to you – what do you know? What experience do you have? What are your strong points?
  • It took me about 15 days to find my job. I went around to all shops, bars and restaurants asking for the manager and handing them my CV personally.

dream-job

WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR OTHER STUDENTS LOOKING FOR WORK?

  • Be patient! It will all work out ok!
  • If you put in the effort and are persistent, you will find your job! Ask to speak with the manager where possible.
  • Keep in touch with people and tell everyone you are looking for a job. There are so many people coming and going so you can take their jobs as they leave.
  • Never give up! and try speak with the manager.
  • Make your CV interesting and personal to you. Show them why they should hire YOU! 😀
