Tourism students taste success

LAST year proved to be a busy and successful one for Rosny College’s Vocational Education and Training (VET) 2019 tourism class.

The students ended the year on a high note with a graduation ceremony at Wrest Point where they were joined by guest presenters Tourism Industry Council of Tasmania chief executive officer Luke Martin, Wrest Point HR manager Rhiannon Carr, and John Tucker MHA, representing the Premier and Minister for Tourism.

The 2019 RACT Student of the Year was Kayla McFadyen, the Premier’s Award for Outstanding Commitment and Accomplishment was won by Connor Clark and the TICT Award for Excellence was won by Zoe Sproule.

“It has been another very successful year for the program, with several graduates already having commenced employment within the tourism/hospitality industry,” Rosny College VET Tourism course coordinator Rodney Anderson said.

“The course is highly regarded by industry and features several intrastate familiarisation visits and site inspections of several accommodation properties around Tasmania.”
