Seevic student's Royal work experience
Monday, 13 June 2016
A travel and tourism student from Seevic was at the centre of one of the most exciting Royal events of the year.
Ellanie Beaumont spent a week at Guildhall in central London as part of work experience which runs alongside her course.
Her time at the Grade I-listed building coincided with the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations and she was thrilled to be involved in organising one of the most high-profile events over the weekend.
She said: “I definitely went on the best week.
“Prince Harry, William and Kate and Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie walked past me. I curtsied Princess Beatrice and she smiled and said hello.
“I put out the seating cards marking where everyone would sit – including William and Kate.”
While Ellanie was on work experience, she was given an award as part of the annual business awards ceremony which took place Tuesday 7 June at Runnymede Hall.
When she arrived back at college on Monday, she was presented with the teacher’s choice award for her hard work.
Ellanie said she was given a real insight into how a venue like the Guildhall prepares for such an important event.
She added: “The first three days of the week we had lots of meetings and briefings about Friday’s event.
“They were all so lovely, especially as it was such a big week.”
The Travel and Tourism course at Seevic enables students to learn more about this exciting industry and the type of work it has to offer.
