Soccer, or football as it’s known in many parts of the world, has a rich history dating back centuries. Originating in ancient China, Greece, and Rome, the modern version of the game took shape in England during the 19th century. Today, it’s one of the most popular sports globally, captivating audiences and athletes alike in countries spanning from Brazil to Germany, Spain to Australia. While Australia predominantly refers to it as soccer, in many nations, it’s synonymous with the term football, reflecting the sport’s universal appeal and diverse cultural roots.

The soccer match between The Kings and Real Madrid at Brisbane City Botanic Gardens was nothing short of exhilarating. Led by our dedicated teacher Luke, the boys showcased their formidable skills and unwavering determination throughout the game. From precision passes to strategic manoeuvres, each team demonstrated a deep understanding of the game, captivating spectators with their agility and finesse. The competitive spirit was palpable as The Kings took an early lead, leading 3-1 at halftime. However, Real Madrid didn’t falter in their resolve, mounting a valiant comeback in the second half. Despite their best efforts, The Kings maintained their composure and emerged victorious in the end. The match not only provided an opportunity for friendly competition but also fostered camaraderie and teamwork among the players, creating memories that will last a lifetime.


Engaging in sports like soccer offers numerous health benefits beyond physical fitness. It improves cardiovascular health, enhances coordination, and boosts mental well-being by reducing stress and anxiety. Moreover, participating in team sports fosters camaraderie and bonding among players, promoting teamwork, communication, and mutual respect. These invaluable life skills extend far beyond the soccer field, enriching students’ personal and professional lives long after the final whistle blows.


For students juggling the demands of language learning and academic pursuits, sports serve as a vital outlet for stress relief and rejuvenation. Balancing study with physical activity not only enhances cognitive function but also promotes a healthy lifestyle and overall well-being. At Lexis English, we recognize the importance of holistic education, which is why we offer a diverse range of extracurricular activities, including various sporting events, to complement our rigorous academic curriculum.
