Lexis Brisbane visits Life Flight! โœˆ๏ธโœˆ๏ธ

Last Wednesday, a group of our Lexis medical professionals visited Life Flight’s helicopter base at Archerfield Aerodrome with their teacher Catherine.

Life Flight have over 130 medical crew and they perform over 4000 patient transfers a year! They attend to incidents such as natural disasters – particularly during the flood seasons, and even rescuing people stranded out at sea.

The aim of this trip was to understand how people in and around Brisbane are transported to hospital by helicopter in an emergency situation. Teacher Catherine took the students here as part of the Accident and Emergency unit; the unit they are currently studying in the EMP/OET course at Lexis Brisbane.

The group also got to see various rescue helicopters ranging in size, from the tiny “Squirrel” – which is used for training purposes, all the way to the massive $20 million AW139‘s!

This excursion was a great opportunity for our students, who are all practicing medicine back home in their countries. It gave them the opportunity to compare their own services with those used in Australia, and in particular – Queensland. What a fantastic idea, Catherine! We hope you all had fun!! ๐Ÿ™‚

๐ŸŽˆ Meet Our New Academic Manager – Sylvester!! ๐ŸŽˆ

As most of you may already know, we have a new face in the Academic Manager’s Office. We are pleased to announce the newest friendly face to the Lexis team – Sylvester! ๐Ÿ™‚

Sylvester.jpg

Sylvester has been with Lexis Brisbane for a about a month and has already settled in nicely. He has over 25 years of experience in the education industry which includes teaching English over in Japan! He lived in the sister-city of Kobe for 6 years and has since settled down here in Brisbane with his family.

Along with his infectious laugh and smile, he would love to bring in some positive changes to Lexis which includes a new found love and appreciation for the English language! His open-door policyย allows anyone who needs help or those who just want to have a chat and practice their English to go in at any time.

Welcome to the Lexis Family, Sylvester! We look forward to having you here with us for many years to come!
