Traditionally the end of the year is a moment of closure. This year, this isn’t any different. Students are able to show their progress during their exams, graduates are concluding their internships, and, of course, we’ll conclude with traditional dance performances for Christmas. Enjoy!
Before Christmas Break, English students, Permaculture, and Core Module theory exams as well as their practical exams in their Core Modules (Culinary, Food & Beverage, Housekeeping, Spa, and Front Office). These rigorous exams determine students’ advancement in both knowledge and skills since the commencement of the program in July. Students must be adequately prepared for their students, both students and staff will evaluate what is necessary for the student graduation on May 25, 2019. a seven-month internship that follows graduation and ultimately their new careers at the end of their internship.
Each term ends with a celebration, and this term is no exception. The campus was donned in traditional as Sumba Christmas decorations are primarily Christian islands but traditions are welcomed and observed. We held a talent show where we performed a traditional dance show and our ladies performed the Woleka dance. These dances are a mix of art and war dances. Students included traditional clothing, swords, and shield attire, and music to enhance the performance. These dances are traditionally used to greet guests, celebrate weddings, and are performed at art and cultural festivals.
