London Graduation December 2020
On 8th December Le Cordon Bleu London held the final graduation ceremony of 2020. As safety measures are still in place, the graduation took place in four small groups throughout the day in order to observe social distancing guidelines, with only graduating students and teaching chefs present. Family and friends of the students could share this important occasion with their loved ones via a live stream of the event online.
Everyone at Le Cordon Bleu London is extremely proud of the students who graduated in December. The ongoing need for extra safety measures has been a challenge for students and staff alike, but everyone has taken it in their stride and persevered in completing another successful term. Those students who have graduated during these challenging times will no doubt go on to achieve great things in their future careers.
Academic Director Chef Loic Malfait led the proceedings, with graduating Diplôme de Cuisine student speaker, Esther Temiloluwa Bamkole, delivering an inspiring speech to her fellow graduates. To make the occasion even more momentous, students received special messages via video from celebrated chef Michel Roux Jr. and Le Cordon Bleu London alumni, chef Josh Katz. The graduates were also able to enjoy a small socially distant reception following the ceremony.
The class of December 2020 have made it through a very challenging year and are sure to take on any new challenges ahead with the same determination and enthusiasm they have shown during their studies. Le Cordon Bleu London extends huge congratulations to their new alumni and wishes them the very best of luck as they go on to their next endeavour.
