Another successful semester of Stage 1 Integrated Learning – Coffee Shop has concluded, with students delivering delicious food and drinks to both students and staff. The café was open at lunchtime on Wednesday, serving students and staff an impressive array of savoury and sweet food, and hot and cold drinks.
The café uses our world-class hospitality facilities and gives students a real experience of running a commercial enterprise, including food preparation, portioning and presentation, using an espresso machine, customer service, money handling, teamwork and problem-solving.
The café was extremely popular with both students and staff, often selling out of some items.
Over the semester students take on more responsibility for café operations, and in the final week, all aspects of the café were successfully managed by the students. All the staff and students of Darwin High School would like to say a big thank you to Ms Potter and the Stage 1 students for making the café a huge success in Semester 1.
Ms Potter, Coffee Shop Extraordinaire and Integrated Learning teacher said,
Thank you for your support and patience over the last 11 weeks as we developed our skills in the food and hospitality industry.
We look forward to the café opening again in Semester 2.
