Sydney – Welcoming 27 incredible new students – 8 January 2024

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

We had a big orientation day today here at Lexis Manly, welcoming 27 new students. They have travelled a long way to be here and come from all parts of the world including Argentina, Brazil, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Japan, Slovakia, Spain, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, Thailand, and Turkey! Each face holds a unique story, a different cultural background, and a shared eagerness to embark on an enriching linguistic adventure. We are so excited 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 corners 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. 

This week marks the start of their studies, and we are thrilled to be there to support them on their unique journeys. The addition of these new students enhances the already diverse tapestry within the school, fostering an engaging environment for learning and cultivating international friendships. We look forward to witnessing all their achievements! Wishing you a wonderful time at Lexis Manly!
