Student Review

Nov 12, 2020

Campbell Apanui, a former Waitara High School pupil started at PIHMS in 2016.

As part of our degree programme, students complete 2 x paid Industry Placements. For Campell's first placement, we found him a job working at the Heartland Hotel in Fox Glacier in Food & Beverage. For his second placement, we placed Campbell at the Scenic Hotel Te Pania in Napier where he worked as a Porter.

In 2019, after lots of hard work and determination, Campbell finished his 3 year degree gaining the Bachelor of Applied Hospitality and Tourism Management and we couldn't be prouder.

Since graduating, Campbell has secured a full time role working as a Porter at the Edgewater Resort in Wanaka.

Here's what he had to say about his PIHMS journey:

"I would just like to take the time to give a shoutout and a big fat thank you to PIHMS for...

1 - helping me to discover myself and my capabilities
2 - raising me from the ashes after leaving school with almost nothing

With these new found abilities I know for a fact that I will accomplish and achieve great things and for that I am forever grateful".
