More than 13,000 people attended 11 graduation ceremonies at Bentley campus this year with Curtin’s own Kirribilli Catering creating gourmet food packs for guests.
According to Food and Beverage Manager Kelli Edwards each graduation ceremony’s food service requirements took 40 hours of preparation and involved nine chefs.
“Events of this scale are always a challenge especially when our chefs are also catering for the day to day requirements of our campus food outlets but we have a great team and everything went smoothly.”
Ms Edwards said that all packaging used for the ceremonies was green and most of it compostable.
