Whale Watching in Byron Bay

Students have a great chance to see the whales playing in Byron Bay when they go on a whale watching tour, they can also see turtles, rays. dolphins and many more sea creatures.

Tom took these photos when he was here. It really is an amazing experience to see the ocean giants so close to you!!!

If you are interested see Max for more details.

Excursion to Rocky Creek Dam

The CAE classes enjoyed a relaxing excursion to Rocky Creek Dam and the Byron hinterland today. The students took time out of the classroom to practise their English while walking along the dam wall, lazing in the sun, bushwalking across a creek bursting with water lilies and enjoying a BBQ under the Jacaranda trees. They even caught a glimpse of one of the cuddliest of Aussie animals…a Koala! A great reward for studying so hard.

Soccer thrills and spills on Wednesdays!

The BBELS soccer game yesterday was the perfect mix of fun and competition. There was lots of laughter and more than one summersault as each nation showed off their local soccer style.  Max, BBELS enthusiastic and super-friendly Activities Coordinator, tried his best to make everyone look good with his wild kicks to the sides. It was great to see some girls turn up and enjoy the game too. Until next week…hope to see you there!

Do you like Australian animals?

Australia has a lot of funny looking animals and BBELS students love to get a chance to meet them.

At Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary students can meet the animals and sometimes, hold a snake, have a cuddle with a Koala and pat a Kangaroo or two.

Currumbin is not a Zoo but a sanctuary for sick or injured animals. They have a hospital and all money spent at Currumbin goes to the animals.

So not only are students having a great day but their money is helping to look after Australian wildlife. Frank has taken the CAE class to Currumbin and photographs were taken by the wonderful Tom!!!
