TRAVEL and Tourism students from South Eastern Regional College Lisburn Campus recently took part in a three day residential to the Share Holiday Village in Fermanagh.
The 'Share Centre' is Ireland's largest residential outdoor activity centre, welcoming over 15,000 visitors each year. Accompanied by their course tutors students took part in a number of teambuilding exercises over the three days including banana boating, laser combat, wall climbing and fuzz ball.
The students also had the opportunity to build and sail their own boats. Provided with eight pieces of wood, plastic sheeting, rope and packaging tape they worked in teams to come up with a vessel which would sail on the lake and only one boat sank.
As well as having fun and developing team work skills students also gained an insight to one of Ireland's top hospitality venues. They were able to investigate the different business functions of the centre from the outdoor activities to customer service, marketing and tour operations and how they combine to make a thriving tourism destination.
