The wonderful Suzy taught her last yoga class before going on maternity leave. We welcomed our new teacher Jimmy.

Coffee club continued to make us all laugh every Tuesday.

Alejandro was May’s table tennis champion.. Who will it be in June?

I was so impressed by your artistic skills when we painted pot plants.

I always look forward to our afternoons down at the soccer field.. Also I love the support from everyone that comes down to cheer us on! Next month we will claim the trophy back!

Sushi making was fun.. Thanks to Nana and Ai for saving us from a rice disaster!

We had a wonderful Friday afternoon enjoying the sun and hitting the waves on the body boards!

More artistic talent expressed in boomerang painting!

We all had a great boogie for Salsa and Sangria.

Jina is from Korea. She lives in Ballina and works at the sushi shop in the shopping center. She studied cooking in Korea and has catered for weddings and big events. When she was 8 years old she came to Australia with her family and had a great time, this is the reason she wanted to come back. Jina wants to improve her English so she can communicate with people from all over the world.

Nathalia is from Brazil. She enjoys playing tennis and watching movies. She decided to study in Australia because she loves this country and the beautiful nature. She is lucky to  have a friend who has been living here for 6 years, so while she is in Byron Bay she is staying with her. She hopes to improve her English before she reruns to Brazil to continue her studies.

Coffee Club! May 14th

It was a great turn out for this weeks coffee club! We had our usual selection of delicious coffee’s and of course everyone’s favourite, Tim Tams.

It was nice to have a catch up with everyone about their weekend and life in Byron. Then we got stuck in to a very serious game of Jenga.

Lexis Jenga is exceptionally fun because each block piece has a question on it so we can all get to know each other better whilst we play.

Serious concentration was required.

Then it was Talita’s turn …. the moment it all came crashing down!

So we played another round while we continued to sip our coffee’s..

Until it was Talita’s turn again…

Haha sorry Talita, but thank you for making us all laugh!! 🙂

Coffee Club happens outside the student lounge every Tuesday at 2pm. Come and join us to chat with new friends and of course, for coffee and Tim Tams!
