Graduation March 2016
Thursday 24th March we saw our first culinary graduation of 2016. 28 students successfully completed their Basic Cuisine and Patisserie certificate, 39 students attained their Intermediate Cuisine and Patisserie qualifications and we gave a haughty round of applause to 20 of our finest, who graduated with their Superior Certificates and were then awarded their Diplôme de Cuisine and Diplôme de Patisserie qualifications.
It was also a very special day to celebrate two of our Grand Diplôme awardees – Ms. Rami Sakamoto and Ms. Emily Novak, who successfully became Alumni of Le Cordon Bleu after 18 months of study, culminating in the Institutes most vaulted award – Le Grand Diplôme. We wish all our departing students the very best and we are sure that some of them will become stars of the future.
All students and guests enjoyed a delightful graduation ceremony followed by some beautiful canapés, all washed down with some chilled Champagne. Hats off to our Bachelor of Culinary Arts and Business students who put the proverbial ‘wriggle on” and created some delightful morsels for all to enjoy!
April 11th we will see the start of term two and we look forward to welcoming back all our continuing students and saying a big WELCOME to all our new budding Chefs, who will be commencing their Patisserie and Cuisine courses at Le Cordon Bleu New Zealand.
