beverages and how to combine
disparate elements to create a unified,
pleasing menu are all important
Madam Amina Weris Mohamed
Sheikh Jirde wished the founding
couple the catering school the best
in their business endeavor.
The Minister of Finance Hon

founders of the catering school for
investing their know-how and wealth

in the venture.
Ms. Farhiya, the founder of the
school speaking during the ceremony
said, “The catering school
which will provide Internships in
catering, getting some hands-on
experience is the best way to understand
the fast-paced, demanding
environment of an important
function or event.
Potential students will participate in
internships over the course of an
entire semester or year in order to
get a real feel for the on-going pace
of catering. Classes that focus on
how to prepare food, how to market
it to clients and how to upsell clients
on nicer products will prepare students
to have the best shot at creating
a small and successful business.
