The Knox School is proud of its state of the art Hospitality and Food Studies Centre. We offer Food Studies as an elective to Year 8 and 10 students where they will learn about topics such as basic methods of cookery, foods from around the world, café operations and function and event co-ordination.
As the students enter VCE they have the opportunity to select VET/VCE Hospitality. Students have the option to direct their studies into two streams:
1. Hospitality = bar and wait skills
2. Hospitality (Kitchen Operations) = cookery skills.
At the successful completion of each course students will receive a Certificate II in Hospitality along with a Responsible Service of Alcohol Certificate in Stream 1. This will not only assist with students ATAR scores but also offer credit to courses entered post-secondary.
The Hospitality Centre features a variety of commercial ovens, a deep fryer, griddle plate, salamander, a fully equipped bar and a 24 seat café, allowing students to prepare and present many amazing dishes and beverages in an environment that mimics the industry standard.
