Meet our Santa all the way from Nepal

Meet our 2nd year Apprentice Santa Bir Gurung. Santa who was a Primary School Teacher in Nepal started with us in May last year on the Crystal Brooks Hotel Collection projects.

He migrated to Australia in 2017 and completed his Cert I in Building and Construction. It was through Prime Construction that we got introduced to this fine chap.


It is understandable that his transition from Teaching to Rendering must have been hard especially going straight onto to such large projects here in Cairns but learning the Aussie Lingo with the lads on site must have been mind blowing.

However Santa does this all with a smile. He has a lovely gentle nature and the lads are teaching him the ropes and of course our Aussie Slang.


Santa at Baileys Hotel, Abbott Street, Cairns.

So what is the meaning behind your name? It means Peace

How long have you been rendering for?

1.5 years
