Dorcas Dlamini-Mbele, Group Sales Director for Protea Hotels by Marriott International Group, spent some time with Port Shepstone High School Grade 9 learners recently, before they start to think about their subject choices later in the year.
She chatted to them about the career opportunities available in the tourism industry.
Dorcas, a proudly Sheppie High matriculant herself, is a very successful leader in the industry, having been named one of the Top 100 Young Independent Leaders in South Africa by Independent Media in 2017.
It was an honour for the school to host Mrs Mbele, who had travelled all the way from Gauteng for the occasion.
Meanwhile, at an event held recently as St Michael’s Hotel, awards were given to educators for receiving the most learner distinctions in their subject in the Ugu district in the National Senior Certificate 2017 examinations.
