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.

IMG_2631

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!

Salsa & Sangria! May 17th

Friday afternoon we strapped on our dancing shoes and got funky for Salsa & Sangria with Danni from Sassy Salsa.

IMG_2475

We started off with a warm up to get us into the swing of it…

And then we got straight into learning a short ‘reggaeton’ routine…

Which then quickly escalated into an epic group dance circle…

Now everyone was well and truly warmed up and ready to enjoy some sangria! I made the sangria following a simple recipe of red wine, orange juice, a table spoon of maple syrup and diced apple, strawberries, orange and lemon.

Our lesson continued learning some salsa moves and practiced with a partner.

Thank you everyone for such a fun afternoon! I am already looking forward to our next dance lesson. 🙂

Boomerang Painting! May 16th

Boomerang painting was on the agenda for today and we couldn’t of picked a better afternoon to spend indoors getting creative. The rain came down outside as we kept cozy and warm in Room 1.

Lamingtons and chocolate fingers were the perfect Australian treat to spike the sugar levels and get our creative juices flowing.

The traditional Australian boomerang has been historically used for hunting, as well as sport and entertainment. They are commonly thought of as an Australian icon, and come in various shapes and sizes with all sorts of beautiful, colourful designs. In Aboriginal culture it is common to see the style of painting where a lot of tiny dots are perfectly painted to create specific shapes. These shapes or symbols often represent things relevant to aboriginal culture.

There was some great takes on the traditional patterns and also some with Byron Bay flair. They all looked great!

Now to take them to the beach and test them out!!

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!

Soccer Match Against BBELS! May 8th

Yesterday afternoon we all gathered out the front of the school to walk down to the soccer field together. Our nominated captain Tommaso led the way.

We arrived early so had some time to relax in the shade before our opponents arrived..

Those who were very keen began to warm up..

There was a little bit of confusion about what field we would play on, but as soon as Max and the students from BBELS arrived they pointed us in the right direction.

We had a solid team from the beginning.. and more talented players continued to arrive throughout the game.

IMG_1881

With the other team only having 8 players in the beginning we started off playing 8 a side for 12 minute quarters.

The first quarter set the tone for a very fast paced, competitive game!

The score at the end of the first half was 2 – 0 to BBELS. The scores evened out in the third quarter and Lexis scored a goal in the final minute to bring the sore to 3 all.

 By this stage Team Lexis had a large crowd to cheer them on!

We played on for another 5 minutes to determine a winner.. no body scored! So with another 5 minutes on the clock it was a tense match, but BBELS managed to fluke a goal leaving the final score 5-4.

Special mention to Jvana, who played excpetionally well, representing the female students from Lexis. Go girl!!

It was a great game. Thank you to everyone who played! You were all amazing. Looking forward to the rematch Wednesday 22nd May at 3.30pm!
