Placement Program Lunch

The William Angliss Placement Program Lunch was held on Tuesday 12 June 2018 12pm – 3pm at the Angliss Restaurant.

The Placement Program is a valuable experience for a select number of events and tourism students to work 1-2 days a week in successful companies within these industries.

The lunch is held at the conclusion of the program as an opportunity for all students and placement partners to get together and share an insight into their unique experiences.

This was the first year the Placement Program Lunch was held in the Angliss Restaurant and was run by a team of Diploma of Event Management students, Mr. Fox Events.

As part of our function subject we were placed in groups. The name of the group was Mr. Fox Events. We worked closely alongside our client Corinne Maxfield to create this event.

The theme this year was elegant and classy. Our Stylist created centrepieces, table settings and menus that portrayed this theme in a neutral colour palette perfectly, as shown in the photos below.

The Beverage Coordinator was in charge of creating a customised mocktail to suit the demographic and theme of the function. The mocktail chosen was a Ginger Peach Soda, as shown in the photos below.

The Front of House Coordinator and Administrator were in charge of managing the hospitality team to ensure service was performed at the highest possible standard.

At the pre-lunch reception set up in the restaurant foyer we had a professional photographer from the Marketing department there to take photos of our students and their partners to be posted on the William Angliss website to share with all guests.

We had almost 50 guests in attendance, we began the day with a welcoming speech by the Placement Program Coordinator, Julie Rayner, followed by a delicious main course served by the hospitality students.

Shortly after the main course we arranged for a wonderful choir performance of “Ngarra Burra Ferra” sung by the aviation students.

Following this we had each of our events and tourism students make a short speech allowing them the opportunity to speak, share their experiences and thank their placement partners and the companies they worked at for the valuable lessons learnt during their placement.

Once the speeches ended the dessert course was served and shortly after the function concluded.

Overall, the whole event, overseen by Mr. Fox Events, ran smoothly and on time from start to finish. All guests seem to enjoy the food, atmosphere and the function in general.

We received lots of positive feedback from our guests and our client was very impressed by our performance throughout.

Managing this function was a great learning experience for us moving forward in the Event Management course and also to develop new skills and knowledge to become successful in the events industry.

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.

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.

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.
