The International Travel College of New Zealand (ITC) has just opened a brand new Airport Training Centre at its City Campus. The centre will be only the second of its kind in the country; the first is at ITC's Botany Campus. The huge Airport Training Centres simulate real-world airports, including check in, customs, gate lounges, and even planes where students are trained in all aspects of in-flight service. Training also incorporates the CODECO online check in system, currently used by 52 airlines worldwide. ITC has been a premium supplier in the airline, airport and travel and tourism industries for over 15 years. The college focuses on making its' training relevant to employers in those areas. "We've got great relationships with the industries we work with, and the practical nature of our courses means that our graduates are ready to work in their chosen fields," says ITC's Marketing Director Claire Huxley. "That translates into great job placement rates and a willingness from our industry partners to provide our students with onsite work experience." Both ITC's Botany and City Campuses are taking 2011 enrolments now. Find out how you can launch your career in the airline, airport, and travel and tourism industries by phoning the ITC Team now 0800 868747 or (09) 373 5510 for more information, or check our website www.itc.co.nz Advertorial 3718339AA Wriggle & Rhyme takes award Youngsters just can t get enough of Wriggle & Rhyme.

The class promoting active movement for under two-year-olds won the Project Collaboration Award at the 2011 NZ Sport & Recreation Awards last month. The award recognises the partnership between Auckland Libraries, Sport Auckland, Sport Waitakere and Counties Manukau Sport and Harbour Sport which has made the programme so successful. Wriggle & Rhyme sessions are based on Sport and Recreation New Zealand s Active Movement initiative which aims to provide positive movement ex- periences to stimulate development of the brain and body.

The KidsCan Charitable Trust has relaunched In Our Own Backyard, New Zea- land s first child sponsorship programme. It enables caring Kiwis to offer ongoing financial sup- port to disadvantaged chil- dren in our own backyard. Donations will provide the basics children in low decile areas are missing out on such as warm clothing, shoes, food at school, basic stationery packs and hygiene items. In New Zealand, thou- sands of children live their lives in deprivation, going without the basics most of us take for granted -- three meals a day, suitable cloth- ing, adequate heating and access to medication for ill- ness, KidsCan chief execu- tive Julie Helson says. Just $15 a month is all it costs to remove the physical barriers preventing them from getting the most out of their education. KidsCan is encouraging individuals and corporates who are financially able to get behind this local initia- tive. Go to www.kidscan.org.nz for more information. Swimmers enjoy gleam of Aussie gold By MATT BOWEN Double gold: Champion swimmers Jeffrey Arona-Tuifana'e, left, and Corey Main beat the best Australian age group swimmers in Adelaide recently. Photo: MATT BOWEN Exiting our national swim- ming champs holding a gold medal is one thing -- conquer- ing Australians in their own waters is quite another. That s the word from Ho- wick Pakuranga swimmers Corey Main and Jeffrey Arona-Tuifana e who re- turned home triumphantly from Adelaide last month. The teenagers won gold at the Australian age group 16 years 200m backstroke and 100m breaststroke. Jeffrey broke his own New Zealand record in the process and came third in the 200m breaststroke. Corey broke three NZ records and stroked to second in the 100m backstroke and the 200m freestyle. It s a massive feat, Jef- frey says. Howick Pakuranga coach Gary Hollywood calls it huge . We re talking the future Olympians and medallists of Australia -- to beat their best you ve got to be pretty good. Both competitors have their sights on the Olympic trials in early 2012. But they ll have to speed up fast, Hollywood says. Jeffrey s going to have to take three seconds off that breaststroke time and Corey four seconds off his 200 time. Hollywood says that s a tall order but it s hard to factor in physical growth and their mental state. It seems with them the stronger the opposition and bigger the occasion the better they swim. They ve got to believe that they ve got a chance. They ve got to train to qualify and if they don t, they don t. All the training sets I give them will be to try to set them up to make the team. He rates them both as definites for the 2014 Com- monwealth Games and prime prospects for the 2016 Olympics. Howick-Pakuranga club members did well across the ditch where Kiwi swimmers raked in medals. Bradley Arona-Waqanivavalagi came second in the 14 years 100m breaststroke and Ewan Jack- son took a third in the 17 years 400 freestyle. Paige Schendelaar-Kemp broke NZ records in the 12 years 100m butterfly and 50m freestyle.
