Our students visit The Fridge Cafe Kingsland

The Community Manager from Crown Institute of Studies

Here at Crown we love getting out to gain first hand experiences of the service industry. This is what we call Real World Experiences. Our Hospitality (cafe & bar) students took a trip to The Fridge Cafe in Kingsland to share a meal and drink good coffee. Cheers Fridge!

Drunk and disorderly at Friday Jams - what did you see?

Josephine Franks Reporter from Central Leader

Kia ora neighbours, thousands of people crammed into Western Springs on Sunday night for Friday Jams - which meant throngs of drunk people filling the streets afterwards, with reports of people urinating on people's property, obstructing traffic and loud and antisocial behaviour. Did you see anything? Comment below or email josephine.franks@stuff.co.nz

Celebrating 90 years

The Team from Auckland Museum

Imagine receiving this pamphlet in your letterbox. Would you be compelled to donate?

In 1923 this was sent out to Auckland's citizens, requesting help to raise the remaining £50,000 of the total £200,000 which was needed to build the new Auckland War Memorial Museum. It included a call to donate, initial drawings of the planned Museum and a list of early donors.

The people of Auckland came through and all the funds were raised! The new Auckland Museum was opened on 28 November 1929.

We’re celebrating 90 years of Auckland Museum in Auckland Domain. Read more about the origins of the building here.
