Wheel of Career Spin

Wheel of Career is back again this year! Students tried their luck in spinning the Wheel of Career and answering the questions by throwing darts on the answer board. They had fun playing the game while also learning more about the various career prospects in the business and hospitality industry. Our experienced lecturers were present to share their insights about the students’ lucky choices.

Art of Table Setting

Have you ever wondered how fine dining restaurants prepare their elaborate table set-up? The students got first-hand experience in learning the art of delicate napkin folding at this station. This unique hands-on opportunity attracted many interested students and they had fun learning the various types of napkin folds. Some even mastered the art of folding napkin professionally with ease, without any help from the lecturers from the Diploma in Restaurant & Culinary Operations!

Making of a Good Event Planner

Many of us may know what an Event Planner does, but do we really know what makes a GOOD Event Planner? During the roadshow, students get to try their hands on identifying the key components and aspects of what makes a good event planner by playing the puzzle. Through the puzzle, students learnt more about the soft skills required by an Event Planner and its broad encompassing job scope. The counsellors from the Diploma in Integrated Events Management were also there to share their experience and tips on event management to the students!

Do you know all about Hotel & Hospitality Management?

Hotel & Hospitality Management isn’t just all about managing hotel rooms. The students unravelled the different aspects of managing a hotel at this station. They matched the different types of operations and learnt more about its scope of business.

With the positive engagement from both secondary school students and teachers, SOH Mobile Truck Roadshow ended successfully. We hope everyone had fun and enjoyed themselves as much as we did! Keep a look out for SOH Mobile Truck as we could be driving into your school soon! Till next time!
