Ibu Diane, thank you for talking the time to talk to our students !
All our students had the priviledge for a exclusive “behind the scenes” tour of one of the worlds finest resorts: the amazing Nihiwatu resort. In two visits our students saw an amazing Treehouse Villa, the Owners Villa, the Restaurants and Bars, the Chocolate factory, the Horse stables, the breathtaking private beach….and much more. The students had so many questions for the staff and they were all answered patiently. Thank you to Nina, Reta, Agus and Pak Dedy who made time for us.
At the beginning of January we have been visited by The Honourable Paul Lucas, Former Deputy Premier of the State of Queensland in Australia.
Post-politics Paul works in numerous Asian and African countries in international development assistance. He took the opportunity to provide talks to our students on his perspectives on hotel and restaurant service. His jovial style and using the students to simulate real life situations. He also joined Sumba staff in role-playing service situations.
We would like to sincerely thank Close The Gap for supporting the foundation by providing laptops and printers to aid in the education of our students!
