Graduation is always one of the most anticipated events for students studying at Crown Institute and our May 2013 graduation was no exception.
 
Graduates and their guests gathered at the exclusive Kingston Room at Rydges Auckland Hotel for an afternoon of celebration and inspiration.
 
We were privileged to have Alfred Ngaro as our guest speaker. In 2009, Alfred received the Sir Peter Blake Emerging Leader Award for his contribution to the community. In 2011 he entered parliament as a List MP for the National Party.
 
Alfred congratulated the students on all of their hard work and spoke about the importance of dreaming big. He also spoke about goal setting and always giving your best in all that you do.
 
We would like to thank Taste New Zealand, Stray Travel, Showcase Hospitality and Rydges Auckland Hotel for sponsoring the fantastic prizes for the 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.
