School duo re­ceives dis­play of grat­i­tude

Thanks given to ladies

Stanthorpe Border Post - - NIE HIGH SCHOOL HIGHLIGHTS -

Nu­tri­tional thanks

ON Fri­day, Septem­ber 3, Stan­thorpe State High School cel­e­brated Tuck Shop Day.

Stu­dents took the time to give a spe­cial thank you to our hard-work­ing can­teen staff who don’t al­ways get the thanks they de­serve.

On be­half of the stu­dent body, Claire McCormick and Matthew Burgess pre­sented Michele Mac­Don­ald and Colleen Reed with flow­ers and a cer­tifi­cate of ap­pre­ci­a­tion.

The stu­dents wanted to high­light the im­por­tant role our can­teen plays in daily school life.

Can­teen staff con­sis­tently pro­vide nu­tri­tious food and drinks which means fam­i­lies can have one less task to worry about at the start of their busy day.

It’s proven that hav­ing healthy meals help stu­dents con­cen­trate and learn bet­ter in class.

Stu­dents are al­ways en­cour­aged to say please and thank you ev­ery time they use the tuck shop as it is im­por­tant to recog­nise the work that goes on be­hind the scenes.

Plenty of work goes into pre­par­ing the food and to keep the tuck shop clean and well-stocked.

On Tuck Shop Day they were re­minded to make a spe­cial ef­fort to say thanks to the can­teen staff as their work is ap­pre­ci­ated by the whole school com­mu­nity.

Mel­bourne Cup as­sess­ment

YOU don’t usu­ally see as­sess­ment oc­cur­ring at a Mel­bourne Cup party but, at last week’s Queens­land Col­lege of Wine Tourism Mel­bourne Cup event, Years 11 and 12 Cer­tifi­cate II in Hos­pi­tal­ity stu­dents were ac­tu­ally be­ing as­sessed.

They had to pro­vide the ser­vice for the 70-guest func­tion, in­clud­ing set up, drinks prepa­ra­tion and ser­vice, food ser­vice, clear­ing, wash­ing up for both restau­rant and kitchen as well as pull down.

Stu­dents looked the part in their hos­pi­tal­ity/tourism uni­form and guests com­mented on how friendly and help­ful they were.

Their next as­sess­ment func­tion will oc­cur at the Year 12 grad­u­a­tion din­ner where they will not only pro­vide food ser­vice but of­fer de­lec­ta­ble mock­tails as part of their unit, pre­pare and serve non-al­co­holic bev­er­ages.
