3 Trees Café – Year 12 Takeover

The Year 12 Certificate II/III in Hospitality & Certificate II in Kitchen Operations students don’t have long to go with their studies, so the teaching team decided to let them experience running the café all on their own.
The Year 12s worked together to design the recipes and menus which included doing all of the ordering and considering the costing involved plus the roster and role allocations. They then worked together to offer a Breakfast Menu to Calamvale’s staff and students on Thursday mornings throughout the term. The teaching team were always on standby but were able to enjoy breakfast themselves as the 12s had everything under control.

The students embraced this opportunity and actively sought feedback in order to improve each week. The most popular items were their Waffles & Frappes that changed each week in order to meet customer’s requests.

The Year 12 Café Takeover was a huge success – the students worked exceptionally well together and were a strong team that are definitely ready to take their next steps out in industry!
