The baristas are back in Duncraig Secondary, with Year 11 students practicing their skills as part of their Certificate II in Hospitality. With staff members keen to sample the warm cuppas in these winter months, students are certainly getting lots of practice as they work towards their qualification!

Barista Coffee Tuesday

Staff were following the wonderful aroma of fresh coffee today as queues formed in the LPC kitchen.

The hospitality students prepare and serve coffee, mocha,  hot chocolate and heart-shaped jam droplets. They are learning basic skills and confidence to work as a barista. These skills will also help  them to prepare great-tasting coffee at home. Students learn the basic theory of coffee making, origin of coffee, different types of coffee which are commonly served in Australia. They practice  by using a commercial espresso coffee machine all under the watchful eye of Mrs. Penny Herd.


“When God’s people are in need, be ready to help them. Always be eager to practice hospitality” – Romans 12:13.
