Last week the ‘Aussie Studies’ class went to the lighthouse.
They were lucky enough to get a free tour of the lighthouse.
It was a beautiful day in the sun, the whales were jumping in the distance and everyone was having fun.
Explore Byron Bay’s unique, natural environment and hippie town:

Enjoy a delicious BBQ after your bush walk to Minyon Falls and experience all that Nimbin has to offer.Nimbin is a little town, world famous because of the hippie movement in the 60s and alternative, counter-culture lifestyle.
What a beautiful day to go to the farmers’ market in Byron Bay.
The elementary class had an excellent lesson today, lots of questions for the stall holders.
The students had a chance to taste some strange fruit and learn new vocabulary.
The best think about the market is that everything is grown in Byron Bay.
Watching this video it is easy to see why students love to study at BBELS, it is a small family run school; most of the teachers are local so they can take you to some amazing places in the school van, Minyon Falls, Broken Head and Lennox Head. It is great to see all the different nationalities hanging out together inside and outside of school.
This weekend the party comes to Byron Bay. We have some students working at Splendour and we have other students and teachers going to Splendour. Thursday night at the Great Northern there is a pre-splendour party but you can only get tickets from the website http://www.triplej.net.au
There will be lots of great music around town so enjoy the buzz.
Last week I had the chance to take the Elementary class to Currumbin.
We started with an education session, where the students got to pat a few Australian animals and hold a snake!!!
We then went and had photos taken with the Koalas, after that we visited the Kangaroos.
Currumbin can be a long day and a great way to get around the park is on the train.
On the way back to school we stopped at the Byron Bay Cookie Factory, which was a nice way to end the day.
