Roger left us this morning and we will miss him. He has an excellent sense of humour and has made us all laugh on a daily basis. His farewell was unique, as the pictures show!
Please tell us a little bit about yourself and where you are from?
I’m from Switzerland, from a small village in the south west, a place with 2700 people in it.
What did you do back at home and what made you decide to come to Australia?
In Switzerland I am a house painter. I decided to come to Australia as I spent 10 weeks in NZ last year, where I met a girl from my village who had lived in Byron Bay before, she had the best time here, and so I promised her that I would come to Byron! So now I’m here….
How long have you been at GV Byron and what were you studying?
I was here for 10 weeks, studying general English
What do you plan to do when you have completed your studies with us?
Well, sadly, I have to go home to start work and see my friends and family again.
What has been the single best moment that you have experienced since you joined GV Byron?
Ahh.. so many things.. The teachers have been really friendly and nice. Rebecca and you have been great, looked after me and made me smile a lot. Kayaking, the circus … these things were great, BBQs! As is say.. so many things
What is your favourite place in Byron?
The Main beach is my favourite place, I stayed there a lot of the time, when I wasn’t studying!!) and of course Cocomangas and the Rails..
Is there anything you’d like to add??
If I could find a real long term job here, I think I would live in Byron Bay forever. It’s a really nice place, it’s beautiful, the people are cool and it’s a great life.. I’m going to miss it!
Thanks Roger for all the laughs. You really have made the school a funny place to be! Take care, all the best and keep in touch!
