Last Thursday, students at the International Travel College (ITC) celebrated Easter by dressing up, putting on special performances, and, of course, eating lots of chocolate.
The Easter event was in the spirit of good fun, but it had the added bonus of fostering teamwork and confidence among the students.
Each class was asked to nominate two “dressed up” students, and some classes also rehearsed special performances such as a Fashion Parade and an Easter dance.
Events like these are a great opportunity for students to practice performing in front of an audience (a useful skill in the tourism industry!), as well as work as part of a team.News, Student success | Tagged campus life, Easter, Student Event | Leave a reply
