The Year 12 Food and Hospitality class catered for 220 people at the Victor Harbor Business Awards night at McCracken Country Club for their final assessment.
The students started at school preparing for all eight canapés, Aranccini Balls, three types of sushi, nacho cups, caramelised onion tarts, salmon pikelets, prawn satay, and Thai chicken meatballs. They then left for McCracken where the Year 12s worked in the commercial kitchen to finish off the canapés. They were able to see behind the scenes catering for a large event and work in an industrial kitchen.The Year 12s also served the food, answering questions about the items they had made and making general conversation with members of the public. It was a very proud moment seeing how far they had come from the beginning of the year and flourishing in a situation that they were foreign to. They did a fantastic job, representing the school.
Under pressure the students were able to perform beyond expectations; they used their initiative, and knew what needed to be done. There were several comments about how talented the students were and what a great job they had done.
