Catering students Win Chance to Cater for Olympic Teams


A group of Tresham’s Catering students will be on their marks and ready to go during the Olympics after they have been selected to cater for athletes taking part in London 2012.

More than 12 students have already received confirmation that they have been selected to work within the kitchens in and around the Olympic village where sportsmen and women from around the world will be staying during the Olympics and Paralympics this summer.

Chef John Fahy, Tutor at Tresham has encouraged his students to apply for this once in a lifetime opportunity following their recent experiences catering for Cheltenham Races and at the Wembley Stadium for concerts and sports events.

John said:

“I wanted to offer this opportunity to our students as it is going to be something they will never forget. When people ask in years to come where they were during London 2012, they will be able to say that they were working and feeding gold medallists.

This experience will be yet another venue for our students to add to the CV for future work where they will be using the skills that they have learnt at the Manor Restaurant.”

Tresham is one of only a few colleges that will have students working at London 2012 and who are guaranteed to be feeding athletes. Chef John Fahy will be preparing

breakfast for the athletes and their families in the athletes village together with some of the students, others will be amongst the other Olympic venues within Stratford as chefs and front-of-house staff.
