Students tour Crane Resort


Former Princess Margaret head-girl Shevonne Phillips (right) and Human Resources Officer Shade Piggott (left) were among the Crane staff who engaged the fifth-form Princess Margaret students during a tour of the Crane Residential Resort.

Students of the Princess Margaret Secondary School in St. Phillip now have a better understanding of the opportunities available in the tourism industry and what it takes to manage a successful resort.

Eighteen fifth-form students of the school recently toured the nearby Crane Residential Resort, in the same parish, as part of a social-studies project focussing on tourism.

Along with encountering a former Princess Margaret head-girl,

Shevonne Phillips, who has responsibility for Quality Assurance and

Training at the Crane, the students were able to engage Managing

Director Paul Doyle in an interactive learning session.

Doyle informed the students that the hospitality industry was very important to the Barbados economy and that the island possessed some unique attributes that encouraged persons from around the world to visit.

He further urged the students to pay attention in school and also told them that perseverance, a willingness to learn and honesty were essential qualities in any area of endeavour.

In her conversation with the students, Phillips sought to make them aware of the subject areas that could lead to careers in the hospitality sector and also informed that the Crane operated an internship programme that was highly beneficial to students.

Class teacher David McCarthy, better known as Super D in calypso circles, thanked the management and staff of the Crane for engaging the students and said they were able to take away a load of information and first-hand experiences that would assist them in their study programme.

McCarthy disclosed that Tourism was an important element in the Social Studies programme at Princess Margaret Secondary.
