Last term, the weekly pop-up ‘Café on 3’ was run by some of our Hospitality and English students in support of the Starlight Children’s Foundation again. Café on 3 raised a total of $1,060.09, which was kindly matched by our CEO Stuart Page and COO Bubpa Page, making the total $2,120.18. Evolution Hospitality Institute then covered the difference to raise the total to $3,000!!!

Last week, our Head of Operations, Geoff Gunton, and our Customer Service Team Leader, Brenda Bender, went to the Starlight Day hub outside the QVB to donate the $3,000! Starlight was thrilled by our donation and presented us with a certificate of appreciation.

We’d like to say a big THANK YOU to the Hospitality and English students who ran the café, to their trainer Patrea who supervised them and to everyone who donated to this great cause. Well done students, you did such a great job!


It is in my outmost gratitude to have received this kind of opportunity. I have never felt this determined, challenged and welcomed with my 2 years of stay here in Australia and it’s all because of the help from the school (Evolution Hospitality Institute).

When I first started in school last year, never have i thought that I would develop much confidence within myself, to have interests about my purpose as a student and to showcase my Filipino roots. With my day to day routine together with my Filipina friends it was a satisfying and relieving way to cope up with social norms and mental stress.

Since I took up commercial cookery i must have practical and theoretical classes which i enjoyed the most. With practical ones, i admired not only the teaching skills my trainers had but mostly the interactions I’ve got with them. The way they respond to my concerns and at the same time the fun moments with cooking class is an easement. Theory classes made it look a little bit challenging for me because of the trainer’s I’ve been. I’ve had a good start with recitations but as time flies, I became more matured and focused with my critical thinking.
