Are you ready to embark on a journey through Sydney’s rich history and breathtaking natural landscapes? If so, then buckle up, because we’re about to take you on an unforgettable adventure! Today our students continued exploring the wonderful city of Sydney with their teachers and classmates. They got the opportunity to see the beautiful Curl Curl headlands, the heritage listed Cockatoo Island and the magnificent Sydney Harbour Bridge! In this blog post, we’ll be recounting their adventures at these three hidden gems that are must-visits for any student looking to delve into the heart and soul of one of Australia’s most vibrant cities.

Our teachers organised these awesome excursions around Sydney today, to enrich our students’ understanding and admiration for the natural beauty of Sydney and to also practice their English skills outside of the classroom. At Lexis Manly, we are committed to delivering more than just classroom lessons; we strive to provide unique learning experiences that stretch far beyond our campus walls. That’s why, this week, our dedicated teachers organised these thrilling outings across Sydney, enabling our students to fully engage with the city’s rich tapestry of culture and scenery.

🌊 Curl Curl Headlands with our Elementary & Upper Intermediate Class:

Our teachers Michela & Mac took their classes to the beautiful Curl Curl Headlands, located just a 10 minute drive from Lexis Manly. Tucked away on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, this coastal paradise offers a refreshing escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. Together their classes went on a lovely coastal walk through the headlands, and discovered sweeping ocean views, rugged cliffs, and secluded coves. It was an awesome chance for our classes to practice their English speaking and listening skills, with students at differing levels. Our Elementary & Upper Intermediate classes experienced a delightful day filled with exploration, excitement, and awe-inspiring natural views of Sydney’s Northern Beaches.

 🏝️ Cockatoo Island with our Intermediate class: 

Our teacher Geovane with his Intermediate class got to explore the stunning Cockatoo Island! As our students stepped off the ferry and onto the island’s shores, they were greeted by a fascinating array of historic buildings, shipyards, and art installations just waiting to be explored. Situated in the heart of Sydney Harbour, this former convict prison turned industrial powerhouse is now a vibrant hub of creativity and culture.

Our teacher Natahlia with her Elementary class learnt about the history of the iconic landmark of Sydney – The Sydney Harbour Bridge. The Pylon Museum offers a unique opportunity to dive deep into the history and engineering marvel behind this iconic landmark. After our students immersed themself in the bridge’s history, they climbed the 200 stairs to the museum’s lookout platform, where they were rewarded with unparalleled views of Sydney Harbour, the Opera House, and beyond. It was a perfect spot to snap some envy-inducing photos and reflect on the incredible feat of human achievement that is the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
