activity-calendar

It’s the first day of NOVEMBER and we have an exciting month of activities planned in the mornings and afternoons especially for our Lexis students!

Every Monday you can stretch out and relax doing Yoga with Stef in the garden from 11-12 and with Fee in Room 8 from 2:15 to 3:15.

On Tuesdays we have Coffee Lounge, which gives our students the opportunity to practice their English and get to know each other while enjoying great coffee and yummy TimTams!

On Wednesdays we will start the month with a 1-hour Surf Lesson for our students who want to learn to surf in Byron Bay. The following week we have Boomerang Painting for the morning activity and Beer Tasting in the afternoon. Then there is Skateboarding with Flavio, Flamenco Dance with Alba and we finish off the month with a Poker Tournament!

Every second Thursday we have Job Club for those students looking for work in Byron Bay and wanting extra help with writing their resume, preparing for interviews and applying for jobs. This week we will run a Table Tennis Tournament to see who this month’s Lexis Champion is, and on the other Thursday in November we will have a round of Pizza and Pictionary in the morning and Mindfulness Meditation with Chloe in the afternoon.

On Fridays we start the month with baking Anzac biscuits at Aussie Cooking, followed by Volleyball  in the garden or at the beach the next Friday. Then we have Slacklining in the morning and our next match against the SAE College at the Soccer Challenge on the 18th. To finish off the month and the Cambridge course, we have the End of Cambridge BBQ.

 GIL (Guided Individual Learning) runs every day from 12-1pm and 2-3pm in Room 8. Come along to get help with anything from homework to vocabulary to writing your resume.

We will also continue to enjoy our Student Nights at Cheeky Monkeys every Tuesday night – meet at BWT @ 8pm first to get your drinks, food and fun!

Don’t forget that you can book your 3-hour surf lessons with us anytime at Reception for just $50!

Have a great month!🙂

Soccer Challenge! September 30

A few months ago we were challenged to a match of soccer by another school in Byron Bay.  After a great, close match, we unfortunately lost by just a couple of goals.

Today, we challenged them to another match to try to win back the trophy…

…and WE WON!!! The scores were tied 2-2 at full time, so we went to a penalty shootout. It was goal for goal and Lexis made all their penalty shots, bringing it to 5-4 in penalties before the last SAE player took their shot…which was saved by our keeper Shin!

Congratulations to Team Lexis! It was an awesome game and you all played so well despite the heat! Well done on bringing the trophy back to Lexis! 🙂

Soccer Challenge! June 24

A few weeks ago we were challenged to a soccer match by the SAE College in Byron Bay. Facing a school with 200+ students, we were unsure of pulling a team together. But the Lexis Family has united and pulled together a team of 15 students!

Having never played together before, the game started a bit rough. But after a few minutes, the Lexis team found their flow and gave the SAE team the challenge they didn’t know they were looking for!

It was a very close first half, with the scores tied 1-1 at half time. The competition heated up in the second half, with the teams going goal for  goal until SAE pulled away and eventually won the match 6-4.

Every player on the team played really well and, though we didn’t win this time, will surely win that cup back at the next challenge!
