Mid-year exam results and achievements!

There was much nervous excitement and a tangible sense of anticipation as the ninety hospitality students of the Class of 2012 sat for their mid-year practical and theory exams.  The 100% success rate achieved just weeks earlier during the external moderation had everyone feeling optimistic, including the two students from the Chemucane
region of Mozambique, who would only sit the practical exams as their English is not strong enough to write the theory exams. They were accepted for training by the College in April as part of a pilot training project that will assist the impoverished Chemucane Community members to improve their livelihoods and standard of living via eco-tourism development.

Again a few weeks later, students’ faces mirrored the same anxious excitement, this time as they eagerly awaited the release of their achievements and results. There were cheers of exhilaration and audible relief as a class average of 67% was announced, and a resounding roar of applause and ululating for one learner scoring above 80% on aggregate, and further celebrating for the twenty four with above 70%, thirty three with above 60%, and the rest with above 50%. Only four learners did not manage to pass all four core training modules and the required generic subjects. These mid-year exams are often a first-time experience for these students, and by the end of the
year, with a bit more work and experience behind them, they too should enjoy success!

Thank you! It is your generous funding that helps make this life changing training available to these enthusiastic and appreciative students.
