Attendees had the chance to explore potential educational pathways and interact with college representatives to learn more about their options.

Local vendors added to the cheerful atmosphere by providing delicious burgers, ice cream, and face-painting services. Exciting activities such as the magic mirror photo booth and ‘have a go’ equipment stations delighted visitors of all ages, fostering a sense of joy and camaraderie throughout the day.
Various departments within the NPTC Group of Colleges curated interactive stands to showcase their specialities.

The construction department engaged attendees with table-making demonstrations for birdhouses, while the catering and hospitality department delighted taste buds with cakes and treats.
