Call for Tweets related to Mayors Gala

from:Administrator

to:Level 1

Dear Level 1 students,

The online "buzz" regarding the Mayors’ Gala is being consolidated and shared by Trending.Info.  The event organizers are inviting you (SCS students) to share your reflections on preparations for the Gala.  When posting, please be sure to include #mayorsgala and/or @mayorsgalaspcf so the post can be captured & included in the feed. (Also @StratfordChef for our followers!)

Notes about the food, the evening, your excitement, or a preparation challenge would all help round out the story being shared.  Tweeting impressions of the evening as it unfolds would also be welcome - all posts will be shared live with Gala attendees on several media screens set up for this purpose.

So if you have a moment, tweet on!

Thanks, Meg

Monday Wine Tastings

from:Administrator

to:Level 1

Bob Latham, the school's wine instructor will hold two Monday sessions to introduce Level 1 students to wine tasting. While enrolment for these sessions is optional, you are strongly encouraged to attend as the material Bob plans to cover will be very helpful heading into Level 2 (and he will not be covering it in any depth in the Level 2 course.) The two sessions will introduce students to different wines and insights (the second session is NOT a repeat of the first.)

The sessions will be held at the Prune 7:00-9:00PM

Monday Jan. 27 & Monday Feb. 3

Please email Meg to enroll: mwestley@stratfordchef.com

Theory Course Evaluations

from:Administrator

to:All Students

Dear students,

This week you will be asked to complete online evaluations for all Semester 1 theory courses. You will, as with the trial GWIR evaluation, receive a link to the pertinent evaluation ("Loop survey") at the start of the final class in that course. Your instructor(s) will give you time to complete the evaluation in class.

PLEASE complete all the evaluations - and if possible include comments (constructive ones!) Instructors rely on your feedback to help them refine and improve course structure, content and delivery. I also take seriously your feedback on courses and faculty in planning for the following year All evaluations are anonymous and the results will not be released to instructors until they have submitted final marks.

Thank you. If I do not cross paths with you, I wish you all the best on your exams and I hope you enjoy a well-deserved break over Christmas.

Meg

Communications Presentation Schedules

from:Administrator

to:Level 2

Here are the Presentation Schedules for weeks 7 & 8. "Early class" = 9:00group, "Late" = 10:30 group.  A considerable part of your mark for this presentation will be based on your ability, as presenters. to engage the class in lively discussion. Consequently I would encourage all of you, as class members, to "do unto others" - i.e. make an effort to particpate more in discussion & respond to questions in an interested fashion. You might considering practicing by engaging more in other classes (e.g. with Dianne Jacob our GWIR on Tuesday!)

Overview of Upcoming Tests & Assignments Due

from:Administrator

to:Level 1

Dear Level 1 Students,

As I am sure you are aware, you have a lot of tests and assignments due this week. To help you keep track of them, I've created  the attached summary of Level 1 tests/assignments due in Weeks 4-8.

Don't panic! 30 years of SCS students have survived this particular ordeal - and you will too. It looks like a mountain of work but many of the tests and assignments are quite small & if you have paid attention in class, should not be too difficult. To lighten your load a bit, the Culinary Management Module 1 exam is being postponed until Week 5. I hope that helps.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me at mwestley@stratfordchef.com.

All the best,

Meg
