As part of the GCSE Hospitality course, students are required to research, plan, carry out and evaluate an event of their own choosing that fits into the exam board brief.
There have been two large classes studying GCSE hospitality this year, so the students were split into three groups per class to plan their events which had to cater for a minimum of 10 guests.
Each group planned a different event and these were all held at the Academy over a three day period.
The groups hosted an Italian buffet for school staff, a cake sale for staff and students raising money for British Heart Foundation, an afternoon tea party raising money for Cancer Research, a gourmet meal for senior citizens in the local area with profits going to AgeUk, a mad hatters tea party for staff and a party for children from a local infant school.
The students all worked exceedingly hard and really enjoyed the events. The feedback from the guests was all very positive. All six events have raised nearly £300 to be split between AgeUk, Cancer Research and the British Heart Foundation.
Well done to all GCSE hospitality students.
