Our friends at Function Staff regularly hire Crown students to work at exciting functions at great locations around Auckland. Recently, Crown students have gained valuable experience at the following places, and been paid for it!

  • Mt Smart Stadium (for Warriors Rugby League matches)
  • Eden Park Stadium (for an All Blacks Rugby Union test match)
  • KPMG – Cocktail Class
  • Ellerslie Race Course
  • Crowne Plaza Hotel
  • SkyCity Hotel and Casino complex
  • The Heritage Hotel

Function Staff would like to make a special mention of the following students who have recently done a great job!


Chris Saw has worked at the Heritage Hotel, Crowne Plaza Hotel and the Ellerslie Race Course. These clients all ask for Chris by name!


Kaurasi Wasile has done some excellent work at Crowne Plaza Hotel and Eden Park and Andreas Vakaafi performed very well at both Eden Park and Mt Smart Stadia.


Kevin Lam, a recent Crown graduate, still picks up some work through Function Staff. He’s so good at what he does that he’s one of the first hospitality workers that Function Staff contacts.


Function Staff will also be looking for Work Experience volunteers to assist at the City Surf Series at Mission Bay over the summer.


Add experience to your CV by working with Function Staff; it perfectly complements the skills your gaining in your Crown hospitality course.

Below are some pictures of students working at the Ellerslie Race Course over Labour Weekend.

Governance Committee Board Meeting

Crown’s governance committee board (GCB) held its inaugural meeting today. Over a fine dining lunch hosted by the Northern Club, Dr. Josephine Do introduced the stellar cast to staff members and then outlined the Institute’s aims and objectives. GCB members listened attentively, occasionally interjecting with clarifying and perceptive questions. Constructive advice flowed generously. From this positive and affirming meeting emerged a list of action points that staff will be working on over the next quarter.

How Crown is Different to Other Schools

Crown is first-rate in the field of business, hospitality, travel and tourism, and is one of the longest-running tertiary institutes in New Zealand. Having been established since 1972 (that’s 48 years of teaching!) our fundamental principles of providing caring and innovative training have not changed one bit! However, we’re not stuck in the times, either. In fact, we are constantly improving our practices! We keep our courses and teaching methods fresh and relevant through Crown’s strong connection with reputable partners in the industry.
