I leave tomorrow! I’ve been waiting all year for this day but now that it is here I sort of wish I had more time, regardless, I am very excited for this weekend. 600 volunteers are going to be gathering tomorrow night to prepare and get ready for one of the biggest events in SA!
This Friday is the first night of Schoolies weekend and I cannot wait to serve as a part of Green Team and ensure that all the young people attending will have a safe and fun weekend! So much work goes into this event and every year and I am honoured to be counted among one of the many people wearing green that make it all happen!
For those of you reading that don’t know much about Green team I would love to tell you all about it! For starters, everyone that volunteers is amazing. I have never seen so many people working hard all through the day and night and still be excited on Sunday at 2am. Green team contains a special group of people with an amazing attitude who deal with 3 nights of very little sleep and yet they never lose their energy or passion and very often come back year after year.
As an operation we are all through Victor, from the caravan parks, on the busses, throughout the festival and also around Victor. We are there to ensure that the schoolies have a fun time but also stay safe throughout the whole weekend!
I head down tomorrow and I am so excited to get there and see the people who I am serving with and get ready for what is one of the most amazing weekends of the year!
If you are a Schoolie and you are reading this I am so excited for you! Congratulations on fishing school! I just want to mention while you are packing and getting ready for the weekend you should make sure you download the schoolies app and check out the Schoolies Festival 2016 facebook page for some helpful information! The app contains a bus time table and lots of other helpful information, so get on it!
If you are reading this and you are on the Green Team I am wishing you all the best in your preparation and cannot wait to serve with you
