SERIOUS LEARNING: fun activities in class, outdoors lessons, games set up by your teachers, studying outside school, library trips, excursions with your class, Coffee Lounge, helping each other with homework

SERIOUS FUN: surfing, BWT activities, trips to the beach, Lexis activities such as cooking, Friday afternoons on the beach, yoga, volleyball tournaments, ping pong in the Student Lounge, nights out with other students and BBQ’s!

And for more inspiration – Georgia will be holding a Photography Workshop from 2pm on Friday – meet in reception!

These two winners will then enter into the Grand Final between all of the Lexis schools –

The two winning photos from each school will go in the running to win either; a free skydive (!!!) or a free trip to Fraser Island – worth $700!!

The Grand Final will run from Monday 7th April until Monday 14th April, and the winners will once again be chosen based on the number of Facebook ‘Likes’ across all of the Lexis Facebook groups, as well as on the Backpacker World Travel and Student Uni Travel Facebook pages!

Student BBQ – Rain, Hail or Shine

There is no better way to spend a Friday afternoon than a BBQ with friends.

The rain showed no sign of easing so we moved the BBQ from the park into the common room at Lexis English and all for the better as this meant all students and some teachers were able to join in the fun!

We also farewell a small number of students today, so we wish you all the best with your future endeavours!

I am looking forward to the next BBQ in April.

A taste of university for EAP Sunset Lexis students

It might be raining outside, but that hasn’t stopped our wonderful EAP students from getting to their GIL class today. GIL class is similar to a tutorial class at university. Our students use this class to get extra support and ask questions of their teacher in a relaxed environment. Keep up the good work everybody 🙂
