The course Cert II in Hospitality (Kitchen Operations), requires students to complete 12 Service Periods during Years 11 and 12. These enable students to demonstrate and/or work towards their competencies in areas such as safe work practices, working hygienically, working effectively together, as well as practical skills such as correct knife handling, and cooking food using various methods of cookery, such as deep frying, boiling and baking.
The students in Year 11 and 12 Hospitality completed their service period on Thursday, 23 June, which leads to achieving some competencies within the course. As part of the service period, they made nutritious sandwiches and mouthwatering sweet treats for all staff.
The students worked hard to produce over 130 sandwiches that catered for a variety of dietary requirements, and a staggering 300 chocolate chip cookies and 50 brownies that seemed to disappear quite quickly! The sandwiches were a huge success amongst staff and the quality rivalled some of the popular local cafés and eateries.
We are very proud of all the students who participated in the service day, and extend a big thank you to all students and their teachers Mr Mark Neale, Ms Bev McCarthy and Ms Anne O’Loughlin, for all of their hard work.
