When tasked with thinking out of the box, Landscape Technology students proved they have what it takes to make their mark in their competitive industry.

CPUT students were recognised for their commitment and dedication to a pilot sailing project which aims to transform the sport.

A play, which explores the complicated relationship between a father and son, will be presented by the CPUT Arts Society at this year’s annual National Arts Festival in Grahamstown.

A field trip to a historic village in the Overberg has not only helped a group of students to develop necessary skills in their field but provided them with insights into its historical context.

In recognition of the training excellence offered in the Cape Town Hotel School, the sector has awarded approximately R1.5m in bursaries, equipment, and accommodation vouchers to about 38 of its students.

These and other academic excellence awards were announced on the Granger Bay Campus recently during the school’s Annual Awards Ceremony.

Every year Protea Hotels by Marriot awards bursaries to students who show potential in the industry, and 17 students from the school received bursaries.

The Cape Liquor and Catering Trade Educational Trust, which was formed in 1999 and is closely aligned to the Tourism Hospitality and Catering Pension Fund, awarded R50 000 to the school’s students.

Tsogo Sun awarded bursaries to ten BTech students, with five awarded on academic merit and others on financial need, while the Cape Town International Convention Centre awarded three bursaries worth R30 000 each. The latter award includes a one-year graduation training programme at the centre.

Six more bursaries were awarded to individual hotel school students including an overseas scholarship by Feedem, Hotel School Restaurant, FEDHASA, the Hospitality Property Fund and University College Birmingham.

For many years the University College Birmingham has been sponsoring a Hotel School student to complete their 4th year of study there. Valued at approximately R350 000, this very prestigious scholarship is awarded to a student with the best academic record and who can succeed in the overseas industrial environment.

Hotel School director Thembisile Molose believes the sector’s continued support is adding value to CPUT.

“Our students can only grow from strength to strength and we are, therefore, very excited for them to be so fortunate as many have the opportunity to work for a year in some of the hotels that awarded them bursaries,” says Molose.

CPUT graduates are not only a hit in industry but are also being acknowledged with overseas study opportunities.

CPUT Information Technology students are sharing their knowledge and helping to excite the next generation of female IT specialists through a unique programme.
