Culinary Skills and Barista Programmes

Culinary Arts and Barista:

This year we had the privilege of working with Limerick Hospitality Education & Training Centre in their Roxborough campus. Our students had the opportunity to work with their highly skilled staff and gained a broader insight into the world of coffee and the culinary arts. We hope that these will be available to our students in the future.

Culinary arts: this was a six week programme that took place on our school campus in the home economics room. Our students worked with the highly skilled chef Mr. Tom Flavin, executive chef in the Strand Hotel, and under his watchful eye, produced amazing dishes each week using locally sourced and produced ingredients. Our students thoroughly enjoyed the practical hands-on experience over the weeks and we are very proud of one of our students who reached the finals of the Shannon Region Junior Chef of the Year and who came second in the competition.

Barista course: this took place in the Roxborough Campus. Students studied the various blends and origins of coffee. The students worked closely with highly skilled Baristas who instructed them through the process of making all types of coffee. This was a great hands-on experience for the students and opened their eyes to the world of coffee and also the possibilities in the world of work. This course is accredited by City and Guilds and awarded to the students once they have met the criteria.
