ITC stu­dents shine at stu­dent wel­come

Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

Nine ITC were hand picked to take part in a fan­tas­tic yearly Auck­land tourism event run by Study Auck­land a di­vi­sion of Tourism Auck­land.

Each year the Auck­land Town Hall hosts a spec­tac­u­lar event wel­com­ing in­ter­na­tional stu­dents from all over the world study­ing from pri­mary school through to ter­tiary level.

With over 2000 stu­dents at this year’s event Study Auck­land again asked the In­ter­na­tional Travel Col­lege of NZ (ITC) to help wel­come th­ese vis­i­tors to our beau­ti­ful coun­try in true kiwi style!

“The op­por­tu­nity for our stu­dents to be in­volved in tourism events and to work with in­dus­try while study­ing is a win win sit­u­a­tion,” says Michelle Chatfield ITC City Cam­pus Man­ager.

“The stu­dents were in­volved in look­ing af­ter the per­form­ing groups, the VIP’s in­clud­ing the CEO of Tourism Auck­land Rod­ney Wal­she and MC on the day TV celebrity So­nia Grey!

“They helped the in­ter­na­tional stu­dents feel wel­come, handed out gift bags and did what­ever they could to make the day the huge suc­cess that it was.”

Es­ther Somers, Man­ager of Study Auck­land, had this to say at the end of the event: “What a fan­tas­tic help Michelle and the ITC stu­dents were. They were ab­so­lutely fan­tas­tic!”

And the ITC stu­dents loved it! “It was great to meet peo­ple of all dif­fer­ent na­tion­al­i­ties and be a part of such an im­por­tant event. It makes ev­ery­thing come to life when you are out there us­ing what we learn at ITC,” says Emma, group leader on the day.

ITC is proud to work with Study Auck­land each year on such an im­por­tant event and will def­i­nitely be there again next year.
