This year, a team of enthusiastic and passionate year 12 students took part in planning and organising the event of Annual International Day Cafe.
Throughout the whole project, we were privileged to be part of what seems to be a tradition of International Day at BIS every year. After our lengthy discussions, we came up with the ideas of selling desserts, which included snow cones, ice-cream cones, coke floats as well as cold refreshing drinks. Prior to purchasing, market research was conducted, to find out appropriate pricings for all the ingredients needed. Then the overall pricing was estimated. With our continuous desire to make this day successful, we have purchased the ingredients from Metro and Coop mart, which then only left us to carry out the great service on the actual day.
From our very first customer to our very last customer, all of us managed to treat the customers with polite manners and positivity. Even though it was a daunting task serving out the food in such a fast time period, with crowds of customers all coming in at the same time, we have all seem to have manage it perfectly. We were all in an agreement that it was a great opportunity for us to be involved in such environment and provide the best community service that we could. With our hard and positive efforts, we managed to raise around 11,000,000 VND, which was a definite success and this will all go towards our community partners. We are more than grateful to raise this money for them and contribute to their funds. Helping the society, will someday come back for our own good as well; this was done for all of us.
