APTC international scholarship students from Solomon Islands and PNG practiced their plate carrying skills with “lime and plate” races at the Nambanga Restaurant, Port Vila Vanuatu.
Having already prepared the restaurant for service and awaiting their first customers, students decided to have some fun and practice some of the new skills learnt in the Certificate III in Hospitality Operations.
The rules of the lime and plate races were to make it to the finish line first without dropping a lime – if a lime rolls off the plate you’re immediately disqualified. Students raced to the finish line, unable to jog or run due to the potential dislodgement of their limes, whilst other students practiced flare bartending (throwing and catching alcohol bottles) filled with water of course!
The event gathered a crowd including teachers and students. This was a great opportunity for students to practice their “table waiting and customer service” skills with an added flare.
