I can’t believe it’s already the 11th month of the year, and only 7 weeks until Christmas! We have plenty in store for you, so take a peek below at the activities calendar for this month.
This week we celebrated the Melbourne Cup, and we had a few winners as well! Congratulations to everyone, and to those who weren’t so lucky (like me) better luck next time! 🙂 Wednesday we will have the CityCat tour of Brisbane with the lovely Kay-Cee. See the sights of Brisbane from the river ferry! The ever-so popular Cafe Conversation is back this Friday with Daniel. Be sure to put your name down on the sign up sheet located on the front desk.
Week 2: It’s that time again – LONE PINE!!! Join me (Tara) on Wednesday (11/11) to spend the afternoon with the koalas and kangaroos. Those who are coming will have an early lunch at 11:30am, and we will leave the school by 12:00pm. The cost is $19.20, plus the return trip on the bus. Please pay at reception by Tuesday the 10th of November by 3:00pm to secure your spot! Friday (13/11) afternoon is Yoga time with Sarah. Bring in the weekend feeling relaxed and at peace. Sign up at reception.
Week 3: We have some new activities on offer during this week! If you love capturing that perfect moment in time through a lens, then perhaps you should join the Lexis Photography Club! Come with me on Wednesday (18/11) as we walk around the city finding that perfect shot! Then that Friday (20/11), we will have our very first Video Game Tournament! The game of choice this round is FIFA16, and players must form teams of 2 to participate in the competition. The sign up sheet and tournament rules are at reception already, so be sure to sign your name early to avoid missing out!
Week 4: This week we’ll also see some new activities happening in the school! The lovely Leah has set up a Dance Workshop on Wednesday (25/11) to teach a variety of dances. Be sure to sign up the week before, as spaces will be limited. The final Friday (27/11), Lexis Brisbane will be transformed into a karaoke stage! Come along with your friends to sing away to your favourite songs! There might even be some pretty cool prizes for the best singers too! 🙂
As usual, Mondays and Thursdays we have our workshops. Not only are they beneficial to your English learning, but you’ll also have fun while doing so! Tuesdays in Room 3 is the Job Workshop. This is a good opportunity to get some help with anything job related! All activities are run in the afternoon from 2:00pm, unless otherwise stated.
That’s it for this month! Feel free to take some calendars home with you – you can find them at reception or the student support desk. Have fun!! 🙂
