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.

Winners thoroughly enjoyed receiving their prizes! After completing a challenging Race Around Melbourne, students ended their journey at La Di Da for a yummy lunch and soft drink.
Stage 2 Event students, Elise, Jess and Sidney from A+ Events had the pleasure in planning the event.
On Friday 12th May, Diploma of Event Management students Jessica, Alyssa, Madeleine and James hosted the Great Chefs lunch with Guest Chef Archan Chan from the restaurant Ricky and Pinky. The event was a great success with a menu being chosen by Archan Chan and cooked with the help of students studying Certificate 4 in Cookery. All the guests enjoyed the event and we received positive feedback from guests that attended. It was a great experience for the students to increase their skills and knowledge in the events industry.
On Thursday The 1st of June our function group Lush Events had the opportunity to host an Autumn Themed Buffet Lunch at Angliss Restaurant. Our function was hosted for the people of Melbourne to enjoy the fine dining experience that Angliss Restaurant offers.
The team at Lush events consists of Lauren as our Administrator, Paulina our Front of House, Jess our Beverage coordinator and Hayley our stylist. We each had a role and requirements to fulfil that role prior to the Lunch.
Our Buffet consisted of great quality food that the guests loved and enjoyed. We had over 50 guests attend.
Jess our Beverage Coordinator’s, Mock-tail strawberry paradise and Cocktail ‘Autumn Breeze’ was the highlight of the bar during the buffet lunch. The Strawberry Paradise mock tail was a hit and sold several times throughout the day. The refreshing and tasteful drinks went perfectly alongside the delicious food served throughout the buffet.
Paulina Our front house was in charge of running the ops class and ensuring that everything throughout the day ran smoothly. Paulina was cool, clam and collected and ensured that everyone had a great time through her service. She made sure everything was on time and in according with the running sheet.
Hayley our stylist developed her theme through our brief and incorporated the different elements of autumn through research and visual displays. Hayley’s design was simple yet elegant through her white vase that had a soft orange bow tied around the top. The vase held flowers representing the various colours of autumn and planks of wood scattered round the room with autumn leaves. The overall design was simple but left an impact through its bright colours.
As a team we are proud of the outcome of the buffet lunch and we all had really great time and enjoyed our event even more as our class 1B helped make our lunch such a success with their professional and polite attitudes throughout service, we are extremely proud of our achievements and the overall success of the Lunch.
Over the course of a sixteen-week semester, the “Luxurious Events” team had the pleasure of planning the University of Third Age’s annual Winter Luncheon.
University of Third Age Melbourne is a voluntary organisation for citizens over the age of 50 that are semi-retired or retired who return to “university” to take classes to keep an active mind.
The event was a mid-year social gathering for the organisation and was held in the Angliss Restaurant on Wednesday June 14, 2017.
The theme for this year was “Sailing the Mediterranean”. All 125 guests were treated to a delicious 3-course meal and some Greek, Italian and Spanish music and dance.
Overall, the day was a great success and our team received very positive feedback from our client! We would like to thank our teaching mentor for supporting us throughout the process! It was a wonderful opportunity and learning experience.

As part of our Diploma of Events Management, we were to organise and run a function for a client. We were lucky enough to be able to work with the amazing Anna Polyviou who is currently working at the Shangri-La Hotel in Sydney and has been recognised on Master Chef numerous times.
With Anna’s love of street art and her fun personality we based our theming from this focusing on creating that street feel and using her signature colour of hot pink. We did this by using various elements like milk crates that featured images of her and her work, paint splatter, brick wall, fairy lights, caution tape and most importantly the DJ.
Our team for the night included our function class and patisserie students on the floor and a hospitality class in the kitchen mentored by Anna and her team.
We were excited and extremely happy with how the night turned out and that all that attended enjoyed themselves but the icing on the cake (pun intended) was that Anna herself was so impressed with our efforts that she invited us to come to assist at her event which she has trademarked in Sydney known as ‘Sweet Street’.
For one of our classes, the students were given the opportunity to organise and run an event. We did this in small groups of 4-5 people, and were required to name our group. Together, we decided to name our group “Illuminate Events”, and the event we were given to organise on behalf of William Angliss was a Spanish Themed Buffet, held on the 27th of May, 2017 in the Angliss Restaurant.
