We are so proud of our graduating students. There was a wonderful turn out this year with supporting friends and family attended the graduation ceremony, who we know have given them encouragement to help them achieve their goals throughout their time at Crown.

In the exclusive Kingston Room at Rydges Auckland Hotel we awarded our students with their Diplomas and Certificates along with plenty of praise at their accomplishment and many thanks to their commitment and sense of community they themselves brought to Crown.

We would like to give a warm thank you to Kieran Bird of New Zealand Institute of Management our guest speaker, who inspired us with his talk about setting and achieving goals. Kieran has been a wonderful support to Crown, and we look forward to many more years of support. 

Another huge thank you is for our highly skilled, knowledgeable and compassionate tutors who worked with our students throughout the year. 

With thanks to Taste New Zealand and Rydges Auckland Hotel for sponsoring the fantastic prizes for our top students.

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.
