Tourism Students Hit the White Water
“This week, our students studying Tourism were offered the opportunity to go White Water Rafting on the famous Kaituna River in Rotorua.
Tourism has been a popular Senior course at our school, and as our Tourism industry recovers from the effects of the pandemic, there are so many incredible opportunities for students to study and work in the tourism industry.
Our tourism course focuses on introducing students to the skills and knowledge of working in the tourism industry, so trips to experience tourism first hand are such an important aspect of the course we offer. It was awesome to see students pushing themselves outside of their comfort zone.” – Mr Grant.
