Beer Tasting

Our customer service students were hard at work again this afternoon serving up a variety of Australian craft beers. The students had a quick lesson on the language needed to discuss different the different appearances, aromas, tastes, and palates. They quickly dived into their work preparing the tables with food platters, activities and surveys. The customers were greeted by the friendly front of house staff as they arrived and shown to their designated tables.

As the samples were poured, the customers were told some information about each of the beers which were further accompanied by a tasting menu prepared by the customer service students.

 

We even had our own security guard who took care of all the intruders.

Valentine’s Day Afternoon Tea

This week our Kindai students were treated to a very special Valentine’s Day event. Maria’s wonderful customer service class prepared a lovely high tea for the teens. The afternoon tea was complete with beautifully made cucumber sandwiches, scones, lamingtons, hot and iced tea.

The front of house staff were in charge of greeting our Kindai students and taking them to their table.

Front of house staff

 

The teens were waited upon by the lovely waiters and waitresses who provided them with high-quality service.

The students were encouraged to relax and enjoy the many games laid out on the tables as their drink orders were taken. Delicious refreshments were soon made and brought out.

Serving drinks

 

No high tea would be complete without a few sweet treats like Aussie lamingtons and jam on scones.

 

The customer service students even went as far as to organise a lucky door prize. Four lucky boys were the winners of some beautifully packaged Valentine’s chocolate which they were kind enough to share with the rest of their table.

All in all the event was extremely successful and the feedback was fantastic. It’s sure to be a Valentine’s Day the Kindai students will never forget.

Today our Kindai students raced around Noosa Junction to take photos and check off all the crazy things on their scavenger hunt list. Hanging upside down, posing as supermodels, hopping like kangaroos, turkeys on a flying carpet, a man wearing an orange shirt, climbing a tree like a koala, and cute puppies were just some of the fantastic photos the students took in an effort to win the ultimate prize of Tim-tams and Koalas.
