1B EVENT STUDENTS VISIT GRAND PRIX blog

Stage 1  Event Industry students had a visit to the Formula One Grand Prix and had access to the Driver Learning Education Program.  This was a precinct within the Grand Prix where students could learn about new technologies and advancements in the area of Formula One. It was very hands on and interactive. We also had a PR Consultant talk to us about what is involved with staging an event of this nature and the importance of risk management in events.

William Angliss Institute Foundation Golf Day 2017

The 2017 William Angliss Foundation Golf Day was held on the 22nd of November at the Medway Golf Club in Maidston. The event management team, Birdie Events, worked closely with Stuart Walsh and Anne Kavenagh  to plan the day.

The 3 key objectives were to strengthen the relationships with key suppliers, to create a William Angliss Institute branded and promoted event, and for guests to network and share business experiences.

The WAI Golf day began early with a tasty breakfast BBQ provided by William Angliss chefs. The coffee cart provided by the WAI Coffee Academy, was a big hit, & kick-started  the players. Throughout the day the WAI food and beverage station  served coffee, cold refreshments and snacks.. We also had a gelato station which had an amazing choice of flavours and a highlight in the  35 degree heat.

Overall it was a successful day, with lots of food, interaction, relationship building and most importantly, fundraising for the William Angliss Institute Foundation.

Ronald McDonald House Halloween Family Celebration

The Diploma of Event Management team from Inspired Event Co. at William Angliss Institute Jess, Alyssa, Georgie and Emerald had the pleasure of hosting a Halloween Celebration for families at The Ronald McDonald House Monash in Clayton.

Attendees included families staying at the house who have a sick child currently being treated at The Monash Children’s Hospital along with staff members at the house.

On the Thursday the 2nd of November, Star Light Events (stage 1 event management students) held the annual Patisserie High Tea on behalf of our clients, Susan Carey and Angela Tsimikitis. It was held in the Angliss Restaurant from 3 to 5pm. We were lucky enough to have all of our functions event management students to assist us on the day, which assisted the day to run smoothly.

The Patisserie High Tea is an annual event to showcase and display their work. All of the buffet items that were available were made by the students and teachers. There were over 25 different sweets from Toffee Apples to Banana and Caramel Eclairs.

The Theme of our Events was ‘It’s a little bit Fruity’ so we styled our event with lots of fresh fruit and greenery. The bright colours and strong aroma drew the guests into the room. Each table had a specific fruit allocated to it, as well as a range of different seasonal fruits at the bottom.

We started the Tea, with canapés and welcome drinks in the foyer, they then headed into the restaurant where they were greeted by the Front of House staff. Once seated the guests sipped on warm Tea and Coffee and gradually got up to select which sweets they desired. Many of the guests went back for seconds and thirds as the sweets were incredible.

Overall it was a very successful Event and we thoroughly enjoyed organising and running it and working along Susan and Angela. We are grateful to William Angliss and all of the Students and Teachers who helped us make our first event such a success.

National Nutritional Week’s theme this year was try for 5 meaning try and add more vegetables into your daily diet. To show how easy it is to add more vegetables to meal was shown through the entrée and main for the day. By taking a standard Angliss food package, we were able to discuss with the chef to add the more vegetables without changing the overall feel to the food being served. Which was done successfully and at the end of the function many people commenting on the food.
table design

Our Sponsor for the day was VIC Strawberries who donated strawberries to be placed on the table for the customers to eat between meals. We also had strawberries to create a complimentary mocktail for guest to enjoy before their desserts were served. Vic strawberries also provided a book mark and a recipe to place on the table to provide more information about themselves and what they could create with strawberries.
We would like to say a big thank-you to the farmers and growers of VIC Strawberries for supporting the students with their new season produce.

In a gathering that brings together those who may not have a strong sense of family and support coming home from wars fought.

Eighty two of the members sat down for a two course dinner surrounded by styling of an Australian native theme of Coin Gum and Jyp, styled by Emma.

Stage One Diploma of Event Management students demonstrated their newly found knowledge of event planning skills for the functions subject. A successful function which involved client meeting, planning, styling and front of house coordination.

Students will continue to build on these event management skills and benefit from this experience.
