Pizza Party in Manly this afternoon. We love pizza and we love to plan our travels with you Peterpans. Thanks!
Exploring the secret beaches of Manly with the sun shining above and hot sand beneath our feet. What a great afternoon!
Santa Claus, Kris Kringle, Christmas coming, fun classes or fantastic teachers? Take your pick, but whatever the reason, our evening students in Sydney are enjoying their classes to the full. Go guys, you rock!!
Joining Phil (Director of Studies) this lovely Monday in Manly were Lucas, Pedro, Suhyeon and Susana. Big WELCOME, we hope you’ll have a great time at our Lexis school.
Today we said farewell to three students who brought positive attitudes to their classrooms, put smiles on the faces of their classmates and made every day a great day to learn English. Thank you Sonja, Petra and Camille!

Manly Art Gallery visit! It is so amazing to see Australian artists’ work at this small gallery with free entry only 10 minutes walk from Lexis Sydney.
There is so much to see in Manly. Of course Manly Beach is the number one place people want to see. But the walk to Fairlight Beach and beyond is truly spectacular also. It is part of the famous Manly to Spit Walk and a place you shouldn’t miss checking out when you’re in town. If you walk from The Corso just follow the path to the right of Manly Wharf and you will find your way along a peaceful path that leads to one of Sydney’s rock pools. And if you’re as lucky as we were you’ll see a few native Australian birds such as kookaburras and cockatoos.
10 December 2018: Lexis Sydney’s new kids on the block, having flown in from all corners of the Globe. A big WELCOME to you all, please make the most of your stay here, in or out of the classroom.
A famous saying goes that “every time you say good-bye you die a little”. And haven’t we done a lot of dying in Sydney today? But hey, it was a happy day, too! It has been so much fun being around these lovely members of the great Lexis Sydney family. They are now moving on in life, so from all of us to all of you: Thank you so much, we shall miss you, see you around some other time.
Most people know Manly Beach and Shelly Beach, we can all drive, run, walk or ride there. But did you know that there is a beach in Manly that is only easily accessible by boat, swimming or kayaking? We kayaked our way to Store Beach which is located a 20 minute paddle from Manly Wharf. Eight strong and energetic students were keen to kayak there. It was an awesome Springtime afternoon activity with swimming, laughs and by the time we got back to the wharf there were also tired arms and hungry bellies. But great memories to always remember!
Only fifteen minutes walk from Lexis school is Manly’s famous Shelly Beach. A fantastic place for walking, running, swimming, playing beach volleyball or snorkeling. It is safe from large ocean waves and a peaceful slice of Manly during the week. And if you don’t mind an energetic atmosphere, it’s still a great place to enjoy at the weekend.
Our Elementary students sure had an awesome time on our walk and decided to stay the remainder of the afternoon at the beach swimming and chatting in English.
Everyone’s competitive sides came out as the students battled for the winner’s podium. Flo and Claudia won!! They coincidentally named their team ‘The Winners.’ They won bragging rights and also a delicious acai bowl from FreshBlend in Manly. Congratulations!
Manly, the place to be!! Natsuki, Maria and Petra were greeted by summer warm weather and blue sky on this their first day in our school. Welcome to the Lexis Family.
Australia is a bog country where there is so much to see! Mai recently visited Melbourne and she shared some of her awesome photos with us. She saw wild kangaroos and koalas. Travelled along the Great Ocean Road, went wine tasting in the Yarra Valley and explored Melbourne’s CBD. What a great weekend adventure!

We walked to some of Manly’s secret beaches and enjoyed the sunshine and blue sky. Our activities are a fantastic opportunity for students to not only explore new areas of beautiful Manly but also make conversation and expand on their vocabulary and speaking skills. Win-win!
