Hospitality students take over Terrigal restaurant

The Vocational Education and Training faculty at Henry Kendall High School has a very busy term ahead.

The Year 11 Hospitality students were invited by Daniel Richardson, manager, of The Bar De La CoCo at Terrigal, to run his restaurant on Friday, October 16 and Friday, October 23.

“The students will prepare a three course meal, set up the restaurant ready for service, manage bookings, serve customers and then close the restaurant at the end of each night.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for the students to showcase their talent to their families and teachers and to work together as a team,” said Ms Caroline McTeigue, Henry Kendall’s head teacher VET.

This will form part of the mandatory Work Placement hours for the students and will also allow the students to complete relevant competencies towards their Certificate II in Hospitality.

“The students were asked to be part of this new initiative on the Coast due to their excellent reputation from their past Work Placement experience in Term 2,” Ms McTeigue said.

In weeks five and six this term, the Year 11 Hospitality students will be completing their mandatory 70 hours of Work Placement at various hospitality establishments across the Coast.
