Student front-line skills will be honed through events during Tourism Month.
Students in this industry will have the opportunity to develop their front-line tourism abilities thanks to a partnership between the provincial government of Negros Oriental and the Tourism Educators Council of Negros Oriental and Siquijor (TECNOS) for World Tourism Day.
According to Myla Mae Bromo Abellana, head of the provincial tourism unit, these activities will begin next week at the campuses of Negros Oriental State University, St. Paul University Dumaguete, Metro Dumaguete College, Colegio de Santa Catalina de Alejandria, Foundation University, and Asian College -STI, all of which offer courses in tourism, hotel and restaurant management, and hospitality.
The provincial administration of Negros Oriental has collaborated with TECNOS over the years to commemorate Tourism Week in honor of the World Tourism Organization’s (UNWTO) annual celebration.
To promote Negros Oriental’s tourist spots and other attractions, events have been planned for the province’s celebration from September 19 to 21.
Before the opening salvo on Monday, there will be a cleanup walk. There will also be a tourism quiz bee, a domestic and international tour guiding competition, a search for the Tourism Ambassador and Ambassadress 2022, competitions for cooking and dessert preparation, flair tending, table skirting and setting, fruit and vegetable carving, unity games, and the election of new TECNOS and SINATO (Sidlakang Negros Association of Tourism Officers).
As they proceed to Sidlakang Negros Village for the inaugural event, Abellana added, students have specific pathways to pick up rubbish.
She said this is to increase public awareness of the need to safeguard the environment and promote neighborhood cleanliness.
She continued, “The Tourist Ambassador and Ambassadress 2022 is a pageant that provides opportunities and a platform for tourism management and hotel management students in TECNOS member schools to enhance their abilities and promote their tourism advocacies as an example to others.”
