FROM gourmet treats to local African cuisine, The IIE’s Varsity College Pietermaritzburg HCEM (Higher Certificate in Events Management) students catered for every palate during its recent annual HCEM Food and Fun Fest, raising over R20 000 for The Qhubeka Education Project.

“By planning and hosting the Food and Fun Festival, we give our students the invaluable opportunity to apply the theory taught in the classroom.

Our Work Integrated Learning (WIL) module literally comes alive.

“The students are amazed at what really goes into organising this event and working in teams.

They find it quite daunting at first and are not sure they can pull it off.

“On the day of the festival, everything always comes together. Lots of excitement, colour, music, wonderful smells and laughter.

The campus rocks and the students experience great personal and group satisfaction.

“A good lesson is that there is a lot of work to be done after the event.

“Apart from the clean-up there is the balancing of budgets, letters of thanks and finalising paperwork.

Best of all, the campus is able to make a valuable contribution towards The Qhubeka Education Project,” said Adele Finch, Higher Certificate in Events
Management lecturer.

The Qhubeka Education Project is The IIE’s National CSI beneficiary for the year, and all the students are pulling out all the stops to ensure that they are able to make a difference.

The IIE’s Varsity College Pietermaritzburg Charity Golf Day, also in aid of The Qhubeka Education Project, will take place on October 5 at the Victoria Country Club.

Anyone interested in the golf day must please contact Ian Devenish on idevenish@varsitycollege.co.za.

Contributions can range from donations, sponsored prizes and golfers.
