Soccer match against BBELS! 7 November

On Wednesday we headed to the sports fields for a friendly soccer match against BBELS!

It had been a very hot day, but luckily by time we started playing at 4pm it had cooled down enough for a run around!

We had a large number of players ready to lead Lexis to victory, so many that they had to take turns playing and supporting!

They were also joined by a team of Lexis supporters there to cheer them on!

One of our students, Manuelle, is a very talented photographer and came along to take some snaps and give me some tips on taking my own! These ones here are the ones I took, and I’ll be uploading Manuelle’s once he’s had a chance to sort through them all! Keep an eye out for this blog, there’s sure to be a lot of great photos on there!!

Soccer! 28 April

Last Wednesday we joined one of Byron Bay’s other local schools for a Soccer Match!

Rather than competing against them we decided to keep it friendly and mix our teams,

this didn’t stop the students being competitive and playing their best though!

Nobody wanted to stop playing when the time was up so I left them to carry on playing into the evening!

Soccer Match against BBELS! 7 February

Yesterday we had a Soccer Match against one of Byron’s other local schools!

We had over 30 of our students sign up to play, including 11 girls!

The boys teams were 7 a side and each played 14 minute games (7 minutes each way),

with one match going onto penalties…

The other school only had 1 girl playing so she joined our girls and they split in to two teams of 6 and all played amazingly! Marta was even scouted by the Byron Bay girls soccer manager who saw her playing! Go Marta!

I was so proud of everyone’s enthusiasm, competitiveness, teamwork, and support for each other!

Other Lexis students came along to watch and cheer on their classmates, and the lovely Judit brought along juicy watermelon to share with everyone post match!

It was a really fun afternoon and a great atmosphere! We’ll definitely be doing it again soon 🙂

Soccer Match against SAE College! 28th April

Last Friday we had our big Soccer Challenge against SAE, another local school in Byron Bay!

After defeating them back in September, the pressure was on to keep the trophy firmly in Lexis’ hands.

Those who stepped up to keep our championship title were: Christian, Mauricio, Felipe, Angelo, Shogo, Gareth, Timo, Oliver, Helder, Tito and Juan!

With Helder doing an excellent job as team captain!

The boys all played amazingly and worked together brilliantly as a team,

so it was no surprise that WE WON!!!!

The final score was 4 – 3, with Helder, Juan, Felipe and Timo all scoring goals!

They couldn’t have done it without the skilled footwork of their team though and the support of their adoring fans on the sidelines!

Even a little bit of rain couldn’t dampen their spirits and the boys pushed on as the fans took cover, staying for celebrations after the final whistle!

We were even treated to a beautiful rainbow over the pitch as the game entered it’s final minutes 🙂

Both teams headed to the Bowls Club for drinks post match, where the competition with the two schools continued at the pool table!

Everyone was in great spirits and it was the perfect way to end the week and start the weekend!

Well done boys, you were all incredible and everyone at Lexis is so proud of you for keeping hold of our title!

Also special thanks to Let’s Go Surfing for providing the T-shirts for our team kit!

We put on a nice spread of sushi, crisps and sweets but all the food was gone before I had a chance to get a picture! Can only be a good thing 🙂

The boys enjoyed a game of soccer in the beautiful sunshine while everyone else enjoyed beers and their last bit of time with their Lexis Byron Bay friends!

We hope you all enjoyed your time here with us, it was a pleasure to meet you all, and we wish you the very best with your exam results and the future!
