In June, as one of their final projects for the year, Level 2 and 3 Travel and Tourism students held a cultural day event in the college’s auditorium.
The aim of the event was to celebrate the differences in both culture and heritage of all the staff and students in the college.
The event, although planned and ran by Travel and Tourism students, welcomed everyone at the college whether staff or student, to represent a culture they either were from, or a culture they love and want to share with others.
Students from other areas, including science and sport, also got involved with the event through hosting and offering a helping hand on the day.
The event both gave an opportunity to celebrate the rich diversity of the students and staff at RuTC and successfully promoted cultural diversity, by showcasing the many different types of cultural expressions that are inclusive, equitable and vibrant.
Cultural day was another outstanding event hosted by Travel and Tourism students and teacher, Hannah Talabany.
Joanne Little, Head of Business and Service Industries at RuTC was delighted by how well-received the event was, saying “RuTC is a proudly diverse college, and we are always looking for ways to celebrate this, from our staff to our students, we all got involved and it was wonderful to see how everyone wanted to learn or try something new.
“The Travel and Tourism students did a fantastic job of organising and hosting the event, as well as creating boards filled with information on their chosen country.
“The day was a great success and I look forward to next year’s cultural day. Thank-you also to Hannah Talabany for helping organise the event, you all did a fantastic job."
The event was a huge success with a large turnout of guests, tables of freshly made food, beautiful decorations and more.
