Cater­ing skills served up at gongs

The Port Wal­cott Surf Life­sav­ing Club’s awards night last Fri­day was more than a big night for just the club, with sev­eral high school stu­dents get­ting to test their cater­ing skills at an event for the first time.

Eight of Kar­ratha Se­nior High School’s 80-strong Cer­tifi­cate II Hos­pi­tal­ity course stu­dents catered to a crowd of 123 chil­dren, par­ents and VIP guests such as City of Kar­ratha Mayor Peter Long and Surf Life Sav­ing WA board mem­ber Chris Brien.

KSHS chef lec­turer Nickie Ralph said it was an op­por­tu­nity some stu­dents may never have got to be a part of.

“Hav­ing man­aged and catered many events both here and in Europe over the years, when Port Wal­cott were plan­ning their gala awards night, I proposed a menu for Kar­ratha Se­nior High to pro­vide the cater­ing,” she said.

“Be­ing in­volved in a com­mu­nity event is very im­por­tant, I be­lieve, and with me be­ing ac­tive mem­ber of Port Wal­cott, it is great for both the school and club.

“So dur­ing this past week, we have been pre­par­ing the dishes and those who were able, joined to help set up and serve the meals.”
