ITC students shine at student welcome
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.
