Peace day celebration at   ICNZ

ICNZ students celebrated the Peace Day in September. The International Day of Peace, sometimes unofficially known as World Peace Day is observed annually on 21 September.

It is dedicated to world peace, and specifically the absence of war and violence, such as might be occasioned by a temporary ceasefire in a combat zone for humanitarian aid access.

New Zealand has been rated the fourth most peaceful country in the world. The latest Global Peace Index published by the Institute of Economics and Peace ranks Iceland as the world's most peaceful, followed by Denmark and Austria. New Zealand is ahead of Switzerland and Finland.

Students were dressed in white and performed different activities.

In class   Focus

Entrepreneurship is one of the papers for Diploma in Business Management - Level 7. Students are expected to develop skills such as Planning, Organizing, Leading and Management through developing a business plan. Students presented well-versed business plans with innovative ideas of which some are expected to go live. We congratulate the students on their dedication and hard work.


Learning with   fun

At ICNZ we make sure our students are given the opportunity to learn things in different ways. Apart from in class learning, tutors conduct various activities with the students to broaden the students’ knowledge. Learning about people is quite important as well as interesting to be a successful manager. ICNZ provides opportunities to start building networks, gel well with the peers and acquire interpersonal skills.
