  • Last week TAFE NSW Kingscliff hosted 18 Chinese aviation students and their teachers from Shanghai Donghai Vocational and Technical College. The students were welcomed by local Homestay Families and spent the week learning new skills and visiting Gold Coast and Ballina Airports plus enjoying our beautiful Tweed Coast. It is a wonderful opportunity to showcase our campus as well as the region. We hope to see more international study groups in the future.
