High Flyer Program Highlights

Make a Lasting Impression

High Flyer Program has been running for over a decade and it was an initiative with the Radisson Blu Hotel. We have had the pleasure to meet with all of the students who aspire to be working in the industry.

It was also the first time ever for High Flyer Program to be held at the Kenvale College campus, where students get a 2-day training and put on a Gala Dinner to showcase what they’ve learnt. They invited family and friends of finalists, as well as Industry Partners to enjoy the 3-course meal and to celebrate their achievements.


21 finalists were selected for both Hospitality & Events as well as Cookery team to experience first-hand of what it’s like to hosting or cooking for the gala dinner.

The Cookery Team learns latest industry trends, culinary skills and prepares for the 3-course dinner.

The Hospitality & Events Team orchestrates the Gala Dinner, and receives basic Food & Beverage training.

One of my best memories by far. Love the college and met some amazing people – was the best possible outcome I could have hoped for.

It (High Flyer Program) was everything I expected, plus more. It was one of my most enjoyable courses that I have been on and would recommend it to my peers.


Thank you for inviting us - we really did appreciate it. I must say I was really impressed by the Briar Ridge team - one of them (… Aiden) did a really great job explaining who they were, what they were about etc., and really took the time to give us the background on the person behind it all (Gwyn Olsen). He'd clearly immersed himself in the project, and I think she'd have been really pleased if she'd seen that. Happy to reach out and tell her so if you think it would help pave the way for future events.

I just wanted to express thanks and congratulations to all at Kenvale for the magnificent lunch provided on Thursday.

I have been to many hatted restaurants this year and can honestly say that they would have struggled to produce such fantastic dishes.

The lunch was a credit to your students and your staff.  It would be a privilege to enjoy another visit next year.

Best wishes to your graduating students for success in their career and to your staff to continue to guide students to reach such a high standard.
