Beach Games! 2 November

We are loving the beautiful summer weather here in Byron Bay!!

Last Friday we made the most of the sunshine by heading to one of Byron’s beautiful beaches for some fun in the sun 🙂

Orla took the morning group down and they enjoyed a game of bowls and a bit of volleyball practice.

I then took our afternoon group once they had finished their classes for the week. Everyone was in great spirits and excited for a weekend of wonderful weather ahead!

We had a practice on the beach first while we waited for everyone to arrive, then headed over to the volleyball courts at one of our student’s hostels.

It was my first time playing volleyball and although I managed to get a few shots in, it’s safe to say I’m not a natural! I had lots of fun playing with the students though and they were all really patient and encouraging. I’m already looking forward to playing again!

After a couple of hours I had to return to school, just as more of our students arrived! I left them there to continue playing into the early evening 🙂

It was great start to the weekend hanging out at the beach with yummy snacks and great company!  We headed down to the beach around 11:00 am very hungry and all excited  to relax in the sunshine!

Jenny and Sharron spotted some Byron wildlife whilst walking to the beach!

When we arrived at the beach it didn’t take long before all the cheese and bread had been eaten and our stomachs were full.

We had some great conversations about our future plans and fun experiences in Australia. The boys got competitive with the last of the grapes and tomatoes to see who could catch the most in their mouth.

There was a lots of grapes and tomatoes flying through the air!

Overall it was a great morning and left us all really happy and ready for afternoon classes!

Surf Lesson! October 6

Today we had two surf lessons with the awesome team at Let’s Go Surfing Byron Bay: one in the morning for the students studying in afternoon classes, and one in the afternoon for students studying in the morning classes!

Four students joined the morning class with instructor Johnny, and twelve students joined the afternoon class with instructors Blake and James.

They first learnt the basics of surfing on the beach before heading into the water to put these skills into action.

The conditions were perfect both in the water and out, and it was a great day for beginners to learn how to surf. After falling off a few times, getting some more tips from the instructors and refining their skills a few more times, the students all caught some waves and had a lot of fun learning to surf!

Beach Soccer!

This afternoon Ayuko, Yuka, Shinsuke, Marco and Jobs joined me at the beach for a game of soccer. It was a beautiful sunny afternoon and at half time, some of the students jumped in the sea for a swim to cool off. It was a close match but in the end, Ayuko, Yuka and Shinsuke’s team won (the final score was 10-8). Their prize was beer… they were very kind and shared it with Marco and Jobs.
