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😆

Getting ready to perform!

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.

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!

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! 😀

Hiroshima Juniors final Coffee Club! (and announcement of Scavenger Hunt winner) -March 29th

IMG_2956

Today we had our final Coffee Club for our Hiroshima Juniors group! We had our usual favourites – delicious coffees and TimTams, as well as a very fun game of Uno. We all chatted about what everyone did yesterday evening and took the time to reflect on their two-week trip so far. Everyone agreed that they would like more time here at Lexis Byron Bay as they are enjoying it so much!

We also announced the winner of our recent Scavenger Hunt photography challenge – it was the amazing group Yoga shot, taken by Kanon. Well done Kanon! 😀 See her winning shot below and her accepting her prize – TimTams! 😀

Hiroshima Juniors Surf Lesson! March 22nd

cover.JPG

Today we hit Main Beach in Byron for a very special surf lesson for our Hiroshima Juniors! The lovely Blake from Let’s Go Surfing picked us up outside the school at 9am and we headed to their shop to get fitted with wet-suits and surfboards.

Here are the guys, all ready to hit the beach!

 

IMG_2525

It was super hot by the time we hit the beach so the first thing everybody did was jump into the sea to cool down

The next thing we did – stretching! Very important before hitting the waves.

Everyone gathered around as the instructors explained the basics of surfing and how to kneel up on the board when in the water.

Safety in the water is top priority. Below, our instructor Victor explains what a rip is and how to get out of it if we encounter one in the sea.

Ready to hit the waves!!!

After a while in the water, everyone got back out again and the instructors demonstrated how to stand up on the board when in the water.

Before long, they were surfing like pros!

Check out these pros! 🙂

What better way to finish our surf lesson than with a picnic by the sea. We are already looking forward to next week’s lesson!

Didgeridoo Lesson! March 20th

1.JPG

Yesterday we had the amazingly talented Craig come in and introduce us to an incredible art form – playing the Didgeridoo!

He explained all about what a didgeridoo is – a wooden instrument developed by indigenous Australians, along with a bit about the history and origin of this instrument which has been used within aboriginal tribes for years. It was fascinating to learn about how they form – from finding the perfect branch or tree trunk, to working with it’s natural form to further hollow out the centre and polish it to a smooth finish. Many hours of hard work go into making each didgeridoo and they can range in price from a few hundred dollars to well over a thousand!

Craig had a selection of didgeridoos for us to choose from. Each mouth piece was finished with a special wax, to help seal the edges around the mouth so that no air could get through to disrupt our sound.

The first thing we had to do was practice making a special vibrating sound with our lips, (lots of laughs!) which we then had to do into the didgeridoo – it was surprisingly difficult!

We learned about making different sounds and rhythms, with some mimicking the sounds of animals such as the kangaroo and others sounding like the word ‘did-ger-i-doo‘!

Some of the group were naturals, taking to it so quickly, while others (like me) took a little more practice! 😉 One thing is for sure though – everyone had a fantastic time! Thanks Craig 😀

Hiroshima Juniors Coffee Club! March 20th

img_2387.jpg

Yesterday, we held coffee club in the morning especially for our Hiroshima Juniors group! We all met outside the student lounge downstairs at 9.00am and enjoyed some delicious coffees and TimTams 🙂

Learning how to say ‘cheers’ 😀

IMG_2379

We all chatted together and got to know each other a little better. We spoke about where we are from and what it is like there. I learned that Hiroshima is great for oysters and lemon trees, with lemon cake being a favourite way to use the lemons!

I learned about everyone’s school life and what they like/don’t like in school. Everyone has different hobbies, interests and aspirations, which is very interesting to chat about together. Some students are sporty, playing tennis (with a hard ball, something I just learned about yesterday!) and football, while others are musical and enjoy piano and trombone!

IMG_2376

We were so engrossed in our chats and getting to know eachother that we forgot to play any of our games! Next week, we will! 😉

Until next time…

Bodyboarding! March 14th

Today we all met at Lexis reception at 11am for today’s activity – bodyboarding!

We all walked together in the beautiful sunshine down to the centre of Byron. First stop was to the lovely people of Let’s go Surfing, where we picked up our bodyboards and extra sunscreen. Next stop – Main Beach! 😀

And they’re off! 😀

We made sure to swim at the area where the lifeguards were on duty. Look out for the flag poles to keep away from any rips and stay safe! 🙂

Keep an eye on the March Activity Calendar for our upcoming activities – if you love water sports, you will see we are also doing a surf lesson at the end of the month! 😉

Sushi Making! March 6th

Sushi

On Wednesday last week we made Sushi! We all met in the kitchen at 11.30am.

IMG_1756

Our sushi ingredients: Yaki Nori (seaweed sheets), sushi rice, rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, caster sugar, bamboo rolling mat, mayonnaise, cling wrap, tuna, smoked salmon, cream cheese, carrots, avocado, cucumber and of course – pickled ginger and wasabi! 

There is a lot of preparation involved in sushi-making so everyone had different jobs to do. The first thing was to get the rice cooking! We had special short grain ‘sushi rice’. Cooking rice can be difficult and we wanted it to be perfect so Jesse took charge, using his phone as a timer.

While the rice was cooking, everyone took to chopping and preparing the vegetables, cutting them into thin long strips, long enough to fit in a whole sushi roll.

The bamboo sushi mats had to be covered in cling film – this helps with making smooth rolls, so the rice doesn’t get stuck in the bamboo. It is also keeps the mats clean!

Opening the tuna proved to be quite the challenge! 😀

While we waited for the rice to cook, we covered all our filling ingredients and went outside to chat 🙂

 

Very excited that the rice is done! 😀

 

Sushi rolling time!

 

Check out these perfect rolls!

Some people left theirs as full rolls, while others cut them into little bite size pieces.
