Sydney – Welcoming 19 awesome new students – 15 January 2024

We are excited to welcome our new students at Lexis Manly!New Students

Today at Lexis Manly, we had another big orientation day, extending a warm welcome to 19 new students. They have travelled a long way to be here and come from all corners of the globe including Brazil, Chile, China, France, Japan, Peru, Mongolia, Switzerland, Taiwan and Turkey! It was an inspiring sight to witness 19 new faces, each representing a unique story, a diverse cultural heritage, and a shared eagerness for an enriching educational journey. We are thrilled to have you all onboard!

They all had their orientation day today, which included a writing and speaking test, followed by the creation of an individual study plan for each student. After being assigned to their classes, they had the chance to explore our campus and get to know each other better. Orientation day is a celebration of global connections, as our students have the opportunity to connect with peers from various parts of the world. During their lunch break, they discovered Manly together, shared about their home countries, and then enjoyed a fun ‘Walk and Talk’ tour around Manly with our teacher Mick. 

At Lexis Manly, we take pride in offering our students more than just learning a language, we provide our students with an immersive and fun educational experience. Through interactive classroom sessions and engaging activities & workshops, we find the perfect balance between academic excellence and the joy of learning a new language. Our new students will have the chance to join the fantastic activities & workshops we have at Lexis Manly in the weeks they are at the campus. Check out the Sydney blog to keep up to date with their adventures.

This week marks the start of their studies, and we are thrilled to be there to support them on their unique journeys. We look forward to the incredible contributions each of you will make to our campus, and we are excited to witness the transformative impact of your presence within our Lexis Manly family.  The addition of these new students enhances the already diverse tapestry within the school, fostering an engaging environment for learning and cultivating international friendships.
