Travel stu­dents host In­dian night

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS - ALEX HIB­BERT

TRAVEL and tourism stu­dents hosted their own In­dian-themed event to raise funds for a school trip.

Sari-clad Mac­cles­field Col­lege pupils treated guests to cock­tails in the col­lege’s Silk Room Res- tau­rant as well as an au­then­tic In­dian buf­fet meal pre­pared by fel­low cater­ing stu­dents.

A raf­fle and quiz were held, with prizes do­nated by lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions, and the money raised through­out the night will help to­wards an ed­u­ca­tional trip over­seas.

Dur­ing the four-day trip in Fe­bru­ary the stu­dents will be work­ing as hol­i­day reps in the Span­ish re­sort of Benalmadena. Other forth­com­ing field trips also in­clude ex­cur­sions to Dis­ney­land Paris and The Somme in France.

Course teach­ers Nwyla Tat­ton, Deb­o­rah Sandhu and Becky Mar­shall praised the stu­dents’ hard work after the event. Nwyla said: “The stu­dents did a fan­tas­tic job of or­gan­is­ing the In­di­anthemed event and putting into prac­tice the business skills which they’ve de­vel­oped while on the BTEC course.

“The planned ed­u­ca­tional trips are a vi­tal part of the stu­dents’ course as they pro­vide a great op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence first-hand how the travel and tourism in­dus­try op­er­ates.”
