The first group of 10 Hospitality Training students graduated on the 29th July at a ceremony held at Forest Lodge on Grootbos Private Nature Reserve. The Grootbos Foundation staff , parents and supporters applauded the tenacity and perseverance of these pioneers to succeed.

In his speech, the CEO of Grootbos Private Nature Reserve, Michael Lutzeyer commended the Green Futures College manager, Susan Lochner for her inspirational leadership and exemplary training skills and praised Viola Siyotywa, Green Futures Life Skills lecturer, for leading the 10 graduates into the possibilities of a bright future of further study and employment.

Six months ago, these trainees did not even know what a “mouse” was, highlighting the incredible feat of these youngsters to master basic English, computer literacy and the training course in one go during the past months. Their success also astounded Craig Versfeld from Lobster Ink, who handed over the certificates. Lobster Ink is an internationally accredited on-line training course in Hospitality. The Grootbos Foundation thanks the Datio Foundation for their sponsorship of these students.
