Assumption baristas put on a performance

BEAN there done that, Assumption College students are eager to show off their prowess as baristas at the Assumption College Warwick open day tomorrow.

Every year hospitality students use their newly honed skills at a self-run cafe, choosing their own theme and menu for the event.

"We have had French and Snowflake, this year the cafe is called Mocha Under the Lights," hospitality student Zoe Bowerman said.

"We have learnt how to make them when teachers and Year 12s put in an order form."

After a latte practice fellow hospitality student Ashton McGahan said she was ready for the Friday afternoon crowd.

"One lunchtime we opened the canteen window to test how we will do and we served 43 coffees in 40 minutes," Ashton said.

According to hospitality teacher Kerri Collins, the night was about more than showing what the college had to offer.

"The cafe will give them the opportunity to work as a team, show their decisionmaking skills and theory planning," she said.

Assumption College and its separate faculties will be on display from 3.30pm to 5.30pm tomorrow.

Student-led tours will depart from the breezeway throughout the afternoon.

"I chose Assumption myself when my family moved to town," Olivia McClusky said.

"It will be great to show others what the school does".

On the night you won't want to miss:

The guitar students playing at the coffee shop.

Science demonstrations with special shows at 3.45 and 4.45pm.

ACW singers at 4pm and 5pm.

Musical performance at the hall at 4.15pm.
