Bottom line, Lexis Sydney offers the perfect set-up for international students who want to blend life-style with English studies – and have access to the city when the sun goes down.


Surf lessons on Friday Fun Day

Every Friday is Fun Day at Lexis Sydney and usually involves some kind of beach sports activity.

On 9 September the weather in Sydney was perfect. The skies were blue, the sun was shining and the water was twinkling. The students were really looking forward to their first surf lesson.

The pictures from the lesson below have been on display at Lexis for a couple of weeks already and they always draw a bit of a crowd as students pass, so it’s about time we got them into a blog for students to download!

Lexis teacher Ari and the Manly Surf School crew get all the credit for the pics – thank you! We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

Why get lessons – couldn’t I just hire a board?

It’s easy to go hire a board and do your own thing in the surf but why struggle alone when you can learn quickly from an expert and have fun with your friends!

As you can see from the pictures, most of the students at Lexis Sydney got on their feet on their first lesson and caught a few waves. That’s a great result! And apart from that, Manly Surf School kept our students safe. Students got some great tips about beach safety and surf etiquette. Remember, although Manly Beach is well patrolled by life guards, it’s a long beach with dangerous currents that can run close to shore. Every year, these currents create big problems for beachgoers – it’s why Surf Life Saving organisations have a long tradition in Australia.

Later this year, the team at Surf Life Saving NSW will come and do a beach safety talk at the school. Timing is likely to be the end of October or early November. Stay tuned!
