Dessert was panna cotta with a berry coulis and chocolate brownie with caramel sauce. 

Congratulations to the senior hospitality students for creating such a memorable experience at Kilcoy SHS. Your hard work and dedication shone through on the night. A special thank you to teachers Ms Kate Strong and Ms Jenny Plath for facilitating the success of such a beautiful evening and teacher aides Mrs Jo Ludgate and Mrs Kellie McMillian who worked tirelessly supporting students behind the scenes. Thank you also to our school staff for their support of the Gala and those staff who attended on the evening. 

The gala dinner has been the signature event for our hospitality program over the past decade, with this year’s dinner being the last. Next year will bring fresh excitement with a new curriculum and event for students and families to look forward to.
