Three local students from Jindabyne Central School, Angus Warner, Dayna Green and Kayla Gay, have completed Perisher’s Work Experience program this past season, after successfully applying for the placements through the Year 10 Photography and Digital Media class.
“We are very proud of Angus, Dayna and Kayla for completing the 10 week work experience program with Perisher, and are extremely excited to share their completed project with other students and the community. The experience has provided the students an insight into the industry of media and digital marketing, and has assisted with their decision making process leading into their senior years at Jindabyne Central School. We very much look forward to continuing this program next season with Perisher’s Sales and Marketing team” says Rayna Green, Jindabyne Central School Careers Advisor.
With guidance and mentoring from Perisher’s Sales and Marketing team, all the three students have gained more experience with videography, writing and project management, and used these skills to create a video about following your dreams, something that will be used by Jindabyne Central School and Perisher.
“This was a really great opportunity for these three students to see first-hand what is involved with media production and the Sales & Marketing team.” says Bree Ferguson, Perisher’s Digital Marketing & Communications Manager.
“It’s great that we can provide opportunities for the students in the community and allow them to gain a wide range of experience before finishing school” she says.

Perisher’s Human Resources Manager, Gavin Girling “We are thrilled that the students from Jindabyne Central School gained valuable work experience here with the Sales & Marketing team through the 2016 winter season. This initiative is a small part of our commitment to the local youth that also includes the youth employment program, where we have JCS students work in our Hospitality and Resorts Services departments on a casual basis through winter to gain valuable skills they can take into the work force as they complete school. I look forward to seeing the program continue here at Perisher.”
