We had a mixed group of people who had never tried it before, some who had given it a few goes and those who clearly had quite a bit of experience (Beatriz and Eugene!)!

Almost everyone had a go on the ramp, even those who had never skated before!

Flavio comes to us once a month and will be here again on the 17th of August!

Skateboarding! 6th June

Yesterday we had Flavio from Byron Bay Skateboard School  come in to teach us some skateboarding skills!

Naomi, our Homestay Officer, got involved and discovered she was a natural!!

She got so confident she challenged Cesc, an experienced skater, to a race…. and WON!! Go Nay!

Cesc, wanting to prove he was still a better skater then Naomi, then went one better by using two boards at the same time! Very impressive!

This  morning we were joined by Flavio from Byron Bay Skateboard School, who taught us how to skateboard!

After some initial nerves (having never been on a skateboard before) the students got on to a skateboard to start practicing!

In no time at all, they were looking very comfortable on the boards, mastering how to turn, grabbing their board and stopping. Most importantly, they had a lot of fun doing it and didn’t want the session to end. We look forward to the next session in November to keep learning new skate skills and get a few more beginners on the boards!

October Activity Calendar!

october-activity-calendar

Next week is the start of OCTOBER 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. Don’t forget that the 3rd of October is a Public Holiday, so there will be no school next Monday!

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 Table Tennis Tournament to find this month’s Lexis Champion. I have noticed a lot of students using the new table, practicing for the next tournament so there is sure to be some good competition! The following week we have Flavio coming by at 11am to teach us how to Skateboard and Chloe will be here at 2pm to run a Mindfulness meditation for our students. Later in the month we are getting into the kitchen to do some Thai Cooking, exploring the delicious flavours of Thailand while making a traditional Green Curry. Then to finish off the month we have Pizza and Pictionary in the morning, which will be a fun way to learn some new English words and phrases, and in the afternoon we can get creative while learning about Aboriginal Australian culture at Boomerang Painting.

Every second Thursday we have the very popular 1-hour Surf Lesson with the team at Lets Go Surfing. These lessons are only $20 and are a great way to give surfing a try before booking more lessons to help you become a real Byron Surfer!  Alternating with this, 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.

On Fridays we will celebrate the first week of the course book next week with a Start of Course BBQ in the front garden, both in the morning and afternoon. For the rest of the month we are getting active, with Volleyball and Soccer on different days (in the garden for the morning session and at the beach for the afternoon), and a morning session of Slacklining in the garden with Olmo and a Bike Ride to Tallows Beach in the afternoon.

 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!🙂

Skateboarding! September 8

This morning Flavio from Byron Bay Skateboard School came by to teach our students how to skateboard!

Some students were complete beginners to skateboarding and others were more experienced, but all of them had a lot of fun and learnt some new skills. Everyone is well on their way to becoming a true Byron local, riding their skateboard around town and adapting what they have learnt on the skateboard to their surfing too!
