Events students run men’s health dinner

FLEUR McIlwraith wants to study archaeology after leaving school, but hopes doing a Certificate III in Events will help her obtain work in hospitality during her university days.

She is one of six students from The Scots PGC College organising A Can of Cement at Horizons Restaurant at Warwick TAFE tomorrow night.

One of the requirements of their weekly Thursday morning course at TAFE is they organise an event during the year.

Student Cassie Heaslip said the dinner had been dubbed A Can of Cement to encourage men to get tough about doing something about their health.

While her primary career ambition is not in events, Cassie said it was something to have up her sleeve for the future.

"I enjoy organising events," she said.

Caitlin Bucknell added that a lot of men didn't get around to checking out their health.

"They put it off thinking it won't happen to them," she said.

For Joel Doran, his role tomorrow night will be to ensure everything runs smoothly.

Alice Bird reckons organising an event is fun.

"It is something completely different to school work," she said.

"We have arranged the menu with support from our teachers."

They have obtained the endorsement of the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and hope to raise some money for the cause.

There will be a guest speaker at the 5.50-8pm dinner tomorrow night.

Bookings can be made by calling Rob Hamilton at TAFE on 0418 715042, email rob.hamilton@tafe.qld.edu.au or on the night.
