Pastry Chef – My Passion

Wendy Calder —

Thanks to Sam Smith and the staff at Volare Bread, specialists in baking handcrafted bread and pastries, for supporting our Gateway students' work experience in their bakery.

Over the last two years we have developed a great relationship which has allowed us to send girls to follow their interest/passion. This year Keeley van den Berg secured a five-week work experience opportunity working in the pastry section of the bakery. She enjoyed every minute of her time there and learnt many new skills. Keeley developed and produced her own pastry product which was a hit with the staff. She was also offered a part-time weekend job as a pastry chef. One day she would love to secure an apprenticeship as a PASTRY CHEF.
