James Nash hospitality students take the cake

JAMES Nash State High School Hospitality students exceeded expectations hosting the Cancer Council's Australia's Biggest Morning Tea.

Teachers and support staff were spoiled by choice, with a sumptuous menu including sausage rolls, mini gourmet quiche, lamingtons, mini apple tarts and wagon wheels, just to name a few.

Year 11 Hospitality students not only prepared the buffet, but decorated the tables, made blue and yellow ribbons to wear, as well as making and serving coffee, tea and cold drinks.

This year's event featured a female cooking competition where a number of teachers were nominated to show off their culinary skills.

Judging was tough, with much cake sampling required.

An auction rounded off the fundraising activities, with staff bidding in an attempt to win their preferred cake.

TOUGH JOB: Teacher Rod Jenkins assists with the judging process.

One cake alone attracted a bid of $200, and was worth every bite.

James Nash staff have been running this event for 19 years and are planning something spectacular for next year's event to mark the 20th year.

A wonderful morning for James Nash staff and students, not only enjoying the morning tea delights, but raising money for a great cause.

Total funds raised for the Cancer Council were in excess of $1500.
