Sparrow FET College spring day fundraising!

The best way to start spring is with great food, good music and good friends. The delicious smell of freshly baked muffins and grilled meat filled the campus with lots of excitement and leaving everyone drooling. The professional cookery students prepared delicious food to be sold on campus during the spring day celebration which took place at the FET college campus. Delicious pap, wors, chicken drumsticks and delicious chakalaka was on the menu together with cupcakes for dessert and cool drink to wash down the divine plate filled with goodness. The food plate was sold at R25 and R10 for a cool drink while a cupcake was charged for as little as R5. The professional cookery class learnt how to be patient, provide quality food, work in a team and most importantly learn how to be an entrepreneur and what it takes to be in the food industry. The learners took everything that they had been taught by their lecture Chef Mpho and put it to the test as they did all this work without supervision.  Big ups to our chefs who will in the near future own their own restaurants!

The automotive repair and maintenance students took to the car wash challenge, as they washed cars at the college for the day. The cost of washing a car was R30. Both young ladies and gentleman did their best, and proved to everyone that being a mechanic is not only about the engine, but also about how the car looks. If you want to be an entrepreneur these are the key skills that you need:

  • The ability to manage money

  • The ability to be productive
