Tourism has continued to be a subject split across both Year 12 and 13 this year, with many credits available in both of these levels.

Students who were successful across all standards showed excellent work habits and self management over the year, with students such as Brooke Edwards and Maryanne Matagi excelling at Level 2, and Dhruvini Patel and Raysha Prasad excelling at Level 3.

The Year 12 students covered topics such as work roles, history and the business of tourism, as well as covering New Zealand as a destination.

The Year 13s studied New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific as tourist destinations and the economic significance of tourism to New Zealand and globally. Seven students, Georgia Systema, Raysha Prasad, Tailah Shelton, Fatafehi Tongotongo, Hera Parekura, Jahaana Milner and Tiegan Mann from Year 13 Tourism class chose to continue their studies by enrolling in Tourism courses from 2018.

Georgia Systema was lucky enough to win a scholarship from the NZ School of Tourism and Travel, of $500 towards her costs for next year. Well done Georgia, and well done to those students who consistently worked to the best of their abilities over the course.
