Wedding Bells are ringing at GV Byron Bay

Two of our all time favourite Korean students, Wendy and Patrick, love Byron Bay (and of course each other) so much they have decided to get married here!

After the wedding ceremony on the beach the happy couple are going to party on in the new student lounge at GV Byron Bay. All of their fellow students and all the teachers and staff are invited to the celebrations. It should be a very happy day and fun-filled evening!!!

This week’s Photography Class with Nigel

At GV Byron Bay we are taking the GV schools Photo Competition very seriously. To give our students the edge one of the free activities this week was a photography class conducted by professional photographer (and all round nice guy) Nigel.

Students who attended the seminar said that they found out that their digital cameras could do a lot more than they thought and that Nigel gave them some fantastic pointers on getting the best shots and improving their photography. Keep an eye on the Activies Board in the Student Lounge for dates and times of further photography seminars.
