Scholarships awarded to Three ITC Students

Industry Scholarships awarded to Three ITC Students

International Travel College (ITC) students Justin Fraser, Laura Blundell and Amber Reid have been awarded an industry scholarship worth $3000.00 each from the Aviation, Travel and Tourism Training Organisation. They all worked hard to submit their applications, which included evidence of their desire to study travel and tourism, together with a five hundred-word career path essay.

There was stiff competition amongst the students from all of the providers of Travel and Tourism training within New Zealand. They swept the board (well almost!) securing three of the nine scholarships awarded!

Well done to them all an excellent result! Justin and Laura are now working in the Industry and Amber is still studying at ITC for her Certificate in International Travel, Tourism and Information Technology.

"ITC has opened up the world for me, and is allowing me to persue a successful career path," said Amber.

"I would like to thank everybody who helped me with my application, everyone at ITC and especially the girls at Waiuku Travel Ltd. I really enjoyed the time I spent at ITC and the great friends I made there" said Justin.

All these students will have great careers and their positive attitudes and initiative will be in demand by industry employers.

Having satirised British democracy with such devastating effect, Armando Iannucci has now turned his lens on the dangers inherent in Soviet authoritarianism. Every gag is girdled with fear and the bleak humour is so pitch black it could only have been pumped from deep underground. More>>

"You only get a singer like this once in a generation or two," commented Wynton Marsalis, who has repeatedly hired her to front his jazz orchestra and mounted a 25 foot high portrait of her on the exterior of Lincoln Center. “She radiates authority. She has poise, elegance, soul, humour, sensuality, power, virtuosity, range, insight, intelligence, depth, and grace.” More>>

Max Rashbrooke Review: The King's Singers and Voices New Zealand

To be good at one thing is impressive; to be so versatile across a range of genres is truly exceptional. The latest incarnation of this six-strong male singing group includes Kiwi Christopher Bruerton, and it was a delight to hear him sing the solo on the achingly beautiful My Love Is like a Red, Red Rose.
