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!!

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!

Pictionary + Pizza! October 26

This morning we played a game of Pictionary while also enjoying some pizza!

Pictionary is a game where one person from each team picks a card with a list of words on it. They then have to draw a picture of this word and the other person on their  has to guess what it is before the timer runs out. The teams take in turns rolling the die to move forward on the board, and the first team to reach the end wins.

There were some great drawings and very close competition between the three teams! Bruna and Nozomi raced through the board, with Saya and Othman close behind for much of the game. Erika and Yuri were left behind and were not feeling hopeful, but they made a quick comeback just in time and joined Bruna and Nozomi at the finish line! With two teams on the last square, the race was on to draw and guess the winning picture (which was of a sun). The three teams all started drawing and within a couple of seconds all three teams were yelling the answer! So in the end, the result was a tie between Bruna and Nozomi’s team, and Erika and Yuri’s team.

Everyone had fun trying to guess their partner’s drawings and eating the free pizza while learning new English words. 🙂
