Sydney – A warm welcome to 11 new students – 19 February 2024

We are excited to welcome our new students from Italy, Japan, Switzerland, Thailand and Venezuela!

New Students
Welcome to Lexis Manly, Shiori, Chantal, Antonia, Irene, Nutnaree, Taiyo, Thomas, Shion, Jolanda, Elena and Clement.

On this stormy Monday we welcomed 11 new students at Lexis Manly. The usually gorgeous ocean views turned from blue shades to grey and a big storm including thunder and lightning awaiting our students this morning.

Each face holds a unique story, a different cultural background, and a shared eagerness to embark on an enriching linguistic adventure – even though it was only the first day in getting to know our new students, they certainly showed us that they will make the most of anything thrown at them, when they geared up with umbrellas and rain ponchos to discover Manly on our walk and talk. You have impressed us all!

We look forward to the incredible contributions each of you will make to our campus over the next 4-25 weeks. The addition of these new students enhances the diversity of our school, fostering an engaging environment for learning and cultivating international friendships.
We look forward to witnessing all your achievements! Wishing you a wonderful time at Lexis Manly!

Our new students will join the following classes:

  • IELTS: Antonia Schnuriger
  • Advanced: Thomas Tames
  • Upper Intermediate: Clement Brenet, Chantal Schoenbaechler
  • Intermediate: Jolanda Fries
  • Pre-Intermediate: Taiyo Nishimura, Elena Lucchini, Irene Monzon Marquina
  • Elementary: Shiori Ogawa, Shion Noumi
  • Starter: Nutnaree Boonphasit


Best wishes!
