Crown students and staff no longer need to venture out of the campus to find scrumptious muffins, coffee and lunches!
Crown students have just opened up their own café on campus! The Kiwi Café opens from 8:00 am until 2:00 pm each weekday. It’s been a huge hit since it opened on the sixth floor of the Crown building on 11 February 2013.
The food is made fresh every day and is very tasty indeed. From delicious wraps, pizzas and sushi, to cakes and muffins, there is a wide variety of food to suit everyone’s tastes.
At Crown, we are continually trying to find opportunities for our students to gain valuable work experience. Crown hospitality students are helping run the café and the skills they are learning are going towards completing their unit standards.
The Kiwi Café was one of the school’s initiatives for students to learn how to operate their own café and to be trained in running a business. A qualified manager, Kimberley Benz, a recent graduate of Crown, supervises the café.
The skills the students will acquire from this experience will be invaluable. At Crown, we find that graduates who have relevant work experience in the industry step into the workforce much faster than those without it.
