The Tourism Department host Cultural Day- Dundee Technology Centre Campus

DTC Tourism students proudly display their different traditional attires as they express themselves with traditional dance.

The Dundee Technology Centre Campus (Tourism Department) is known for its tantamount excellence across Majuba TVET College. The Department wants teaching and learning to be interesting, especially for students, and they continuously strive and have worked exceptionally hard to place the department where it is today.

Events Management is part of the Tourism curriculum, meaning the department needs to plan and design events that will benefit both students and the department. It needs to be on the edge in order to attract partners for it can to grow. On that note the department is in a process of inviting different stakeholders to negotiate and develop a good partnership to benefit the students.

Ms. B. E. Luthuli (Act HOD: Business Studies – DTC) gets proceedings underway as she warmly welcomes all the attendees.

The Tourism department had a Cultural Day as it plays a crucial part for the yearly ISAT project. This ISAT project is the practical component of their studies and counts 50% of their final mark.

This department wants cultural tourism to be beautifully advertised for a better image of diversity in our country.  It is important to make students understand the different cultures we have in our country. Above all making students understand where they come from, and for them to be able to explain their own cultures to tourists.

Mr. B. E. Magubane (Lecturer: Tourism – DTC) highlights the purpose of the day for all those attending at the Cultural Day event held at Dundee Technology Centre.

Sponsors of the event were: Mabutho Lodge, Battlefields and GCIS. There were many different performances from different cultures. The 1st Place was taken by the Zulu performance, as the best performance of the day. The event proved to be an overwhelming success and left the attendees astonished and excited about culture.
