WITT has kicked off the new study year with a $1,000,000 upgrade of its hospitality department.

The upgrade, to the campus’s E block, has seen the installation of a second kitchen, bigger changing rooms for students and increased office space for staff.

Construction was being finished off as the tertiary education provider welcomed students back for the start of the new semester.

WITT faculty leader – trades, Angela Ferguson, said the project began last November and was due to be completed by Friday.

“It’s been something that we’ve been waiting years for,” she said.
