Fiji is one of the most popular destinations visited by New Zealanders on holiday; so where better to take our current travel and tourism students on a cultural educational overseas experience than Fiji?
The trip was booked through STA Travel, with Feejee Experience offering us an insight into the ‘real’ Fiji. The students swam, hiked, sand-boarded, soaked in mud pools and hung out on beautiful beaches, and, through the variety of activities, learnt about the Fijian way of life. A highlight of the trip was taking part in a sevusevu ceremony (meeting and greeting visitors) in a local village, where students took part in the kava offering, ate local delicacies and danced.
Feejee Experience gave us a fantastic example of how, as tourists and future tourism industry employees, we can help support local communities without damaging the environment.

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.
