Farewell to the Class of 2013

28 November 2014

On Friday, 14 November, we bid farewell to the Class of 2013.  Wise words from former South African President, Nelson Mandela, was appropriate to celebrate the milestone; “It always seems impossible, until it is done”.

This can be said about the two year journey these remarkable young people embarked on when they joined The Capital Hotel School and Training Academy (CHS) on their path to becoming hospitality professionals.

At times the process seemed impossible and challenging, but they persevered and can reflect with a smile and a warmth in their hart (as they sigh with relief, “it is done“).

We asked some of our students what their highlights were, this is what some of them had to say;

Ingrid Jordaan (Hospitality Management)

“My highlight was the first year camp and meeting all the students for the first time.

Anri Jacobs (Professional Cookery)

“Practicals with my group and the wine course.  We had some fun times.  Every day was a highlight.”

Golekane Lee Mahlangu (Hospitalty Management)

“The different functions we did and the school anthem was my highlights”.


Students of The Capital Hotel School and Training Academy are sought-after in the hospitality industry and we are excited to find out where they take up employment once they complete their studies:

Chelsey Tinker (Hospitality Management)

Cabin Stewardess – Seabourn Cruise Liners

Claudine Prinsloo (Professional Cookery)

Commis Chef – Hunters Rest Hotel (Rustenburg)

Samson Makoni (Professional Cookery)

Pastry Chef – Brasserie de Paris (Waterkloof)

Staff and Management of CHS witnessed the transformation of these ambitious students; we are proud of each of you and wish you the best of luck with future endeavors.


We invite all past students of CHS to join the Alumni Page on Facebook for regular updates of upcoming Food and Beverage Evenings, functions, news and employment opportunities.
