The Wednesday afternoon activity at Lexis Byron Bay was boomerang painting. First the students learned about some of the symbols of traditional aboriginal artwork and then they designed and painted their very own boomerangs.
Yesterday, was Week 1 at Lexis English. This means that we have returned to the start of the book, and lots of students have moved up to a higher level class.
For Elementary, this always means that Week 1 begins with a small class. (It’s a really great time for new low level students to join as because of this). At Lexis Byron Bay, Serena’s Elementary class now has only 5 students; Ibuki, Sayaka, Wawa, Luis and Aida.
To get Week 1 off to a great start, they organised a class breakfast where everybody brought in some traditional breakfast food from their country (or just stuff they like eating for breakfast). Luis brought Spanish omelette, Wawa Thai chicken soup, Ibuki sushi, Sayaka fruit and yoghurt, Aida, muffins, cookies and juice and Serena crumpets with butter and jam and tea.
The breakfast was a great opportunity for Serena to teach the students some new vocabulary such as lid, spread, cut etc. And it was delicious and fun too.
This week we only had one new starter – Maria – who has been studying at our Sydney Manly campus for a couple of months.
Maria is from Chile and has transferred to Byron for the last month of her studies. She will then return to Chile but hopes to come back to Australia next year on a Working Holiday Visa.
We also welcomed back a familiar face. Some of you will remember Koko, who used to look after our homestay department. Well, we are delighted to say that she has come back to help out in the office for a few weeks. She was met by screams of excitement by some of the teachers and slid very quickly back into her old role.
We look forward to spending more time with both Maria and Koko over the next few weeks.
Today was the end of course at Lexis Byron. This means that each class has completed the book (and did a quick test this morning) and that next week, many students will be changing class to go up to the next level. To celebrate this we held a lunchtime sausage sizzle in the garden. The … Continued
