Wrapping up the year in the Big Smoke

8th Dec 2021

The year is starting to wrap up and the Kare Toa group finally got their trip to Christchurch. 

Some of our youth have shown a real interest in one day having a career in the tourism industry and living in a beautiful place like Kaikōura, how could you not be tempted to further your studies and get amongst it.

We started our trip with a tour of the New Zealand School of Tourism where we were shown around campus by Denise who has been a big part of the school for many years, starting as a student and returning to work there as one of the people who run it. The tour helped our youth to see that this is a real possibility if they choose to go in the direction of the School of Tourism as everyone was friendly and welcoming, even having some of their students who ran a game with us took away the edge and ended with us all laughing and feeling involved.

Next we went into the city center to have lunch at the Riverside Market. To start with it was all a bit overwhelming with so much going on and all the food choices to choose from but burgers and sushi won. We then got to listen to Christmas carols outside as we took in the atmosphere of what Christchurch is all about. 

We finished off with a visit to Laser Strike and boy what a work out! By the end a few of us were melting but the screams of excitement as the game was played echoed through the building. What an awesome way to wrap up our visit to the big smoke.
