Cross-training at NIHI
This month, our second batch of students left us to go and carry out a two-week-long cross-exposure program at the world-renowned resort NIHI. We said goodbye and good luck to five students from our four different departments; Housekeeping, Front Office, Culinary and Restaurant and Bar. The students were over the moon to be given such a fantastic opportunity. They will receive the first-hand experience and will be given a platform to practice skills they have acquired over the last seven months at our school. We would like to say a big thank you to all of the staff at Nihiwatu for making this a reality.
Pre-testing new candidates
We are getting closer to the end of our first school year here at The Sumba Hospitality Foundation, which means we’re recruiting fresh faces for next year. This week, our team has been busy traveling to schools around Sumba carrying out pre-testing in order to find our potential star candidates who will be starting in July 2017. We have been overwhelmed by the number of applicants and the level of enthusiasm directed towards our school and look forward to the next stage of the application process – the student interviews.
