The first of our visiting student groups from Singapore Polytechnic have enjoyed a 5-day famil on the Southern Gold Coast this month. The students, studying hospitality at the acclaimed education institute, were immersed in local activities from barista courses to organic farming on Tomewin Mountain.
After completing a barista course at Ignite Education at Currumbin RSL, they were shown the ropes of organic farming, planting broccoli and other vegetables at Freeman’s Organic Farm on Tomewin Mountain.
It’s a great start to the initiative, with 60 students visiting at the one time and setting up their base on the Southern Gold Coast. The economic impact will surely be felt by local businesses and the local region.
The student visits have been jointly coordinated by Currumbin RSL and CSGC with David Tham from Nanoknowledge in Perth, and we look forward to continuing this relationship, welcoming more student groups throughout the year.
