The school has been successful in finding four students work over the Easter Holidays at the world famous Byron Blues and Roots Festival
The GV team happy to get work at the Bluesfest
GV Byron Bay has arranged work for 4 students with a local waste mangement and recycling company at the Byron Bay Blues and Roots Festival.
Diane Hartung, one of the owners of Too-Up Waste Management and Recycling talks about the work and the students:
We employ people on a casual basis to work as cleaners and to maintain the recycling programs at various events in and around Byron Bay including music festivals . We currently have contracts for 8 major festivals including the Bluesfest and “Splendour in the Grass” held in Byron as well as other smaller events. We are always looking for reliable workers and like to employ students whenever we can. We are very happy with the crew from Global Village and we will continue to employ students from the school.
What the students have to say about the work:
As you would expect from any workforce provided by GV it is very multi national – a Brazilian, an Italian, a Spanish and a Korean.
This is what some of the students had to say:
“The school got me the job at the Bluesfest. The school has an agreement with Too-Up to regularly supply them with workers. It is fantastic to do recycling and cleaning work at the festivals. The mood is really happy and exciting-you don’t feel like you are at work! Also by participating in recycling you are helping the environment.”
“The Bluesfest is a famous festival in Australia that has big name performers from around the world. I get to listen to great live music while I work.”
