Exam results!

Hey Everyone,

This is just a big WELL DONE from all of us at GV Byron Bay to the FCE and CAE students who just got their results. Another amazing group who all did really well. Brilliantly, we had a 100% pass rate from the FCE class and some of the highest grades yet! CAE did incredibly well with the vast majority earning great grades.
Well done guys and a big thank you to the teachers who put so much effort into their classes. You all deserve a big glass of bubbles!

Beautiful Byron Bay

With such stunning weather hitting our shores this week we had to go up to the lighthouse.. Sadly, we couldn’t see too many dolphins, but the wide array of blues in the sea was perfect!

If you’d like to go on one of these tours just sign up in the office!

Happy Birthday !

Today is a very special day for our Spanish student Antonio and Swiss student Marcel as it is their Birthday. As always we celebrate our students birthdays with cake and song..

Happy Birthday Antonio and Marcel from all us here at GV Byron

A Very Sad Farewell to Gabi!

Today we had both smiles and tears as we said goodbye to one of Global Village’s most treasured students, Gabrielle.

After 20 fantastic weeks here with us at the Byron Bay campus the time has come for Gabi to go back to Brazil. During the time spent here in Byron he learnt to surf and was eventually found in the water more than on land! He made many friends with whom he shared lots of laughs and memories, and of course, he has mastered the English language along with some Ozzie slang! 😉

We wish you all the very best for your future Gabrielle. You will be missed by all of us and we hope to see you again one day soon!
