Re-match Soccer Game against BBELS! May 22nd

Yesterday afternoon we had our highly anticipated re-match against BBELS.

When we played last time it was a disappointing loss for Lexis. After a close game, BBELS scored the winning goal in the final 5 minute tiebreaker.

Enrique was our designated captain for yesterdays game. He took it upon himself to get us motivated by practicing a New Zealand haka. The haka is a type of ancient Māori war dance traditionally used on the battlefield, as well as when groups came together in peace. You will often see New Zealand sports team perform a haka before a game.

Great enthusiasm from the students! I had stitches from laughing so hard!

The students had some warm up exercises before the match started and lucky for us we also had the loudest support crew!

With all of our shouting we managed to attract a new friend.. The adorable Cookie!!

He was definitely ‘Team Lexis’!!

The match went on as the sun began to set.

After 15 minute quarters we were all exhausted. Thank you Captain Enrique for keeping us enthusiastic! Unfortunately it was another close game, with BBELS taking the win with a final goal in the closing minutes. The final score was 4-3. Hard luck Lexis.

It was still a great afternoon. Thank you to everyone who played and came down to support!

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!

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 🙂

Soccer match against BBELS – 10 October

Yesterday we played a soccer match against BBELS, one of Byron’s other local schools.

Every couple of months we meet at the sports field for a friendly game. It’s good fun for the students and it’s nice for them to meet other students outside of Lexis 🙂

Rain was forecast for the afternoon but there wasn’t a cloud in the sky! Even at 4pm it was still really warm, so the players did a great job of running around for over an hour!

Meanwhile us supporters stayed cool in the shade!

Both teams showed great skills and played brilliantly, but there could only be one winner…

US!! Go Team Lexis, taking the win with a 6-5 result!
