THE Ngalang Boodja Corporation has helped local citizens practice in culinary and hospitality skills.
21 students participated in a Certificate II in Hospitality training course through JSW Training and Community Services over the past two months.
16 students received full qualifications with 2 receiving partial qualifications.
The students held a three course meal at Ngalang Boodja Corporation’s office on Forrest Street for family, friends and community members on Friday, September 16.
The meal included prawn cocktails or bruschetta for entree, chicken Caesar salad or roast pork and veggies for main and cherry ripple cheesecake or trifle for dessert.
JSW social and wellbeing program coordinator Tamara Rassip said the program helped the students to reach their goals.
“It builds up their confidence, more than anything, to know that they were capable of doing it,” she said.
Atlas Training Group director Rebecca McClure said the lunch highlighted the students’ newfound talents.
“I believe it’s an opportunity to bring community together and to showcase the abilities and talent of the members of these communities,” she said.
