Sydney – A warm welcome to 23 new students – 3 October 2023

We are excited to welcome our new students from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Japan, France, Spain, Switzerland, Thailand and Türkiye!

New Students

The Lexis Manly family was joined by 23 new students from 10 different countries. Due to a public holiday the students started their journey on a Tuesday on a gorgeous 34c summer day. The first day can be intimidating and often students start off a bit shy, but not this group. After completing their placement test and learning about the campus during their orientation, the students immediately started exchanging and getting to know each other. They spent all morning chatting away and enjoying the ocean views together.

Its great to have such an excited and open group joining us with a curious mind set. They started off as strangers today but will surely form strong friendships soon.
We are excited to see our new students settle in and meet their classmates and teacher on their first day tomorrow.

Have a great time at Lexis Manly!
