Health Care and Awareness Campaign

 

“An apple keeps a Doctor away so says an ancient Roman Proverb.”

This is exactly what the HR department did recently when it welcomed GEMS decision to come to their shores to conduct a wellness programme at TSC. Not only was GEMS there but there was also an Optometrist from Wilfred Heinrich Optometrist in Pretoria. Both GEMS and the Optometrist were there to run check up’s on the staff who was interested in having themselves checked. The staff had to follow a procedure when getting tested. A form was issued to each and every staff member in the line and there had to be an indication made in the form as to whether you want to be tested for High Blood Pressure, Sugar levels and HIV/AIDS. This was the first time that this programme was conducted at the College. What was interesting though was that the feedback was positive with regards to the response that both parties got from the staff. This boils down to the policy implemented by the College which is still a draft which indicates that , “ the employer is responsible of making sure that the employee works in a healthy and safe environment of the employees either have a positive or negative effect on employees ‘ wellness. The campaign was aiming at promoting the employee wellness programme.

Centurion Hospitality students practicals

 

It’s true when they say,” if you can’t stand the heat get out of the kitchen” and indeed on Thursday 15 August 2013 the Level 3 Hospitality NC(V) students were busy cooking up a storm in the kitchen. This was done as part of their ISAT (Informative Summative Assessment Task) facilitated by Mrs Du Toit. These are regarded as practical exams whereby students are taught the following; how to create a menu, advertisement of their businesses, learning how to plan, preparing food for the market etc. Students were divided into groups and set up stalls next to the kitchen where they sold food prepared by them.

The menu for the day consisted of the following food; boerewors roll, pancakes, chicken livers, pap n wors, chicken skewers, red velvet cupcakes piped with glittering cream, Vet koek (amagwinya) filled with mince curry, beef burgers, lemon tartlets etc and many other dishes. Both staff and students came to the market to buy food in support of the market day. Stalls were full to capacity as customers placed in their orders. Other meals included free juice whilst other caterers included a free massage in their packages. Customers were then given questionnaires to fill in so as to rate the service from the Hospitality students.

NC(V) Hospitality lecturers –Mr Ben Du Toit and Ms Nomsa Mathe accompanied by Ms Mathilda Steyn-HOD for Hospitality and General Studies faculty visited all stalls to evaluate the following; food preparation, presentation, colour and taste, texture etc. At the same time N4 students were also busy with their weekly practicals in the kitchen next door and they were evaluated by Ms Marilyn Le Roux (Hospitality Lecturer).
