Char­lene Mal­herbe Skil­pad­vlei– Cater­ing and Func­tions Manager

Ek het my eerste jaar hotelbestuur-​kursus gewen deur die SARIE tyd­skrif. Hierdie kur­sus het deure vir my oopge­maak, werks­geleen­thede moont­lik gemaak en elke droom van my waar gemaak. Ek is 25 en ek is n trotse oud-​IHT student.

I feel proud to have been part of IHT Hotel School fam­ily. Lec­tur­ers were approach­able and help­ful, the course itself was well struc­tured and pro­vided a good bal­ance between hard work, fun times and prac­ti­cal expe­ri­ence in prepa­ra­tion for the real world.’

Wel­com­ing of our 2014 first year intake!

Welcoming of our 2014 first year intake!

We recently wel­comed our first year stu­dents at our new cam­pus on Rhe­bok­skloof with a fun-​filled week of ori­en­ta­tion, includ­ing get-​to-​know-​each-​other games, indus­try vis­its to top 4 & 5* hotels, and a scout-​about in town!

The scout-​about required stu­dents to divide up into teams for what would end-​up being an “Amaz­ing Race” through the streets of Cape Town. From the get-​go the stu­dents showed great team­work and spirit, but of course there can only be one win­ner, and the win­ner was…

The Rangers, aka Louis, Megan, Juanita, Bonita, Mar­l­ize & Janelle – they each won a trip on the Cape Wheel in the V&A Water­front, Cape Town – con­grat­u­la­tions guys!
