The purpose of the Cultural Awareness Event was to provide an opportunity for students to complete their assessment in Associate Diploma Events. This included hands-on experience of working in an events management environment and developing skills in managing such an operation. Feedback from the event was that it was very enjoyable and gave the college community an opportunity to learn about other cultures.Students were actively observed and scored by teachers during the presentations. Observations scores will be added to overall Eportfolio outcomes for student projects. The theme of the events helped create an awareness of tourist opportunities in the area and raise an awareness of cultural differences.
