Travel & tourism students of Kensington Intermediate High to travel to New York

Published on : Friday, May 19, 2017

Travel & tourism studentsTravel and Tourism students of Grade 10 to 12 at Kensington Intermediate High are counting down the days for their May 19th New York trip.

To quote program co-ordinator, Louis Andrews, “People feel great towards the program. Students mainly get involved for the international travel and to learn about one of the Island’s major industries. Personally I am excited myself. For some students, they don’t get to travel so (the Travel and Tourism program) lets them travel safely with friends.”

Travel and Tourism is one of the Kensington Intermediate Senior High School’s two Academy Diploma Programs. The other is the agricultural-based ‘Aggies’ program.

In the three-year TNT program, students follow their regular educational curriculum, but specialize in tourism. They gather their work experience through co-op education, travelling opportunities and hospitality-based courses.

The Travel and Tourism program combined with the Aggies program, yields 32 per cent of KISH’s 140 high school student body.

There are also monthly activities like potlucks, bowling, participating in community events, volunteering, student constructed travels and an upcoming Grade 12 trip to Halifax and Moncton.
