Deadly Dishes Cafe

As part of our introductions to various careers and career pathways the Junior students set up and ran their very own cafe, Deadly Dishes.

Students planned all the elements of the cafe and worked collaboratively to design a menu, a name and logo, a seating arrangement, and a cash register. Students then went shopping, baked goodies, set up the cafe space, made signage, made menu’s, created a cash register and allocated roles. On the day of the cafe the students worked to a tight schedule to have everything ready and were absolutely swamped with customers. Staff, students, and parents attended the cafe and everything was completely sold out. Students were busy the whole time taking orders, making food, making drinks, picking up dishes, doing dishes, serving customers and taking money. The students were exhausted afterwards and during the reflection sessions had great ideas about how to improve the cafe for next time.
