On 8 November, our Activities Day, our S1 students reached out for a unique excursion into hospitality industry at a VTC institute in Pokfulam. The aim of the programme was to improve their understanding about hospitality industry. It was a collaborative initiative between Home Economics Department and the Careers and Further Studies Team. It began with a campus tour of Hotel and Tourism Institute and International Culinary Institute, followed by a two-hour workshop. The S1 students were put into two groups, each attending either a culinary or a dining etiquette workshop.
While some participants learnt about western dining etiquette and manners, others had culinary workshop on dim sum or pizza. Their homeroom teachers, homeroom partners, together with supporting teachers kept them company throughout the tour and workshops.
