The best of 2015Posted on 22/12/2015 by Jess O'Connor
As another year comes to an end, we thought we’d take this opportunity to look back at some highlights from the past 12 months.
2015 has been an incredible year for the industry, and at ITC we’ve had many excited, motivated students pass through these halls, ready to embark on a fantastic career in airline, travel or tourism.
With so many students achieving amazing goals – from moving to Disney World or securing their dream job – it was hard to narrow down our top ten stories of the year. But after much consideration, we think the following stories deserve one last mention before we look ahead to 2016.
At the beginning of this year we changed our dress code from ‘corporate’ to ‘corporate black-and-white’. Previously students had been able to wear colour, but we made the decision to keep it smart and simple – and the results have been outstanding.
“Well done to all the new classes at both campuses for giving us the opportunity to say ‘Don’t they look smart?’, not just a few times a year, but every single day! Thank you for taking this in your stride and also looking a million dollars,” writes ITC Marketing Director Claire Huxley.
Every year ITC holds a college version of ‘The Amazing Race’, where students race around Auckland City in colourful outfits in an attempt to earn the glory of being the first over the finish line. 2015’s event was a particularly memorable event, with students turning out in some of the best costumes yet.

If there’s one student event ITC absolutely excels at, that’s a bake sale. The waft of delicious cookies, muffins, brownies and other baked goods always draws a good crowd – which makes for an excellent fundraiser.
In April, ITC put on a bake sale to raise money for the RSA. Nearly $400 was raised – a huge achievement for the student council, and a wonderful way to commemorate ANZAC Day.
We knew 2015 was a year to remember when we started planning graduation. Larger than any other ITC graduation event before it, this night was a fantastic celebration of student success.
“There was such a sense of achievement and pride,” says Michelle Chatfield, ITC City Campus Manager.
“To be able to acknowledge everyone’s hard work on such a glamorous night is simply fantastic!”
ITC decided to see 2015 out in a generous fashion, donating $5,000 to the Auckland City Mission just in time for Christmas.
“For ITC, Christmas should always be about giving and helping others,” ITC Marketing Director Claire Huxley said.
On that note, we think this is a good time to wish all our readers a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Enjoy the festive season and we’ll resume posting in early January. Bring on 2016!Posted in News | Leave a reply
