Chance for stu­dents to shine

CHB Mail - - Talking Point -

The Waipawa Mu­si­cal and Dra­matic So­ci­ety’s Phantom of the Opera pro­duc­tion was an op­por­tu­nity for EIT stu­dents from CHB to show­case their newly­ac­quired hairstylin­g and makeup skills.

Six young women study­ing EIT’s Cer­tifi­cate in Foun­da­tion Skills (Styling) at the CHB Re­gional Learn­ing Cen­tre in Waipuku­rau as­sisted with hair and makeup for cast mem­bers per­form­ing in the re­cently staged show.

“This op­por­tu­nity gave the stu­dents the con­fi­dence to ex­plore the ex­pe­ri­ence be­hind the scenes of a the­atre show in their lo­cal com­mu­nity,” said cen­tre manager San­dra Flem­ing.

The 17-week foun­da­tion study pro­gramme, which will be of­fered on the EIT Hawke’s Bay cam­pus next se­mes­ter and po­ten­tially in Waipuku­rau again next year, pro­vides en­try-level prac­ti­cal skills in beauty ther­apy, hair­dress­ing, per­sonal styling and fit­ness.

“Most in our lat­est co­hort in­tend to progress to pro­grammes of­fered on the main Hawke’s Bay cam­pus,” San­dra says. “As part of the foun­da­tion-level learn­ing, they trav­elled to Taradale once a fort­night to study styling, so they be­came fa­mil­iar with what is of­fered there.”

The “stair­cas­ing” stu­dents will learn about skin­care and makeup, beauty ther­apy, hair­dress­ing and health and well­be­ing. Hav­ing also learnt about DIY beauty, hair prod­ucts and prepa­ra­tion for an in­ter­view, the re­gional learn­ing cen­tre co­hort cel­e­brated with a black and gold-themed lun­cheon, inviting fam­ily and friends.
