This is a great subject to study because we are working hard to inspire and nurture the chefs of the future. Students get to learn and develop a range of skills which will be useful throughout their lives.
Miss Grady, Subject Coordinator
The study of hospitality – previously known as hospitality and catering – is all about helping students develop a range of technical skills and abilities within the kitchen environment. At times students work independently. On other occasions they work as part of a team to present events and serve customers.
It involves theory and practice, with students applying their learning to both sweet and savoury dishes. They also develop their knowledge and understanding by studying a variety of businesses in the hospitality industry.
How we organise learning
Hospitality is part of the vocational group of subjects. During the curriculum choices process in Year 8, students can opt to study hospitality from Years 9 to 11.
