An Elmwood College Hospitality student is currently participating in a two-week work placement in France, in partnership with the Franco Society and the Alex Gray Bequest.
Teri White a Level 2 Diploma Professional Cookery student from Leven, is staying in Cupar’s twin town Sainte Ménehould.
During the work placement, Teri will work in a local French patisserie and bakers shop for two weeks where she will expand her knowledge of patisserie making.
Teri commented, “I am very excited to be given the chance to work in France and learn about their culture and sample the cuisine. Whilst in France I hope to gain more experience in cake decorating and patisserie.”
The Franco-Scottish Society is supporting this placement, as they have used some of the Gray Bequest monies in assisting Teri in this venture. The Gray Bequest was specifically aimed at giving young people the opportunity of visiting and learning about France.
John Vaughan said, “As Chairman of the Cupar and Howe of Fife Twinning Association, I am pleased to have worked with Elmwood College and the Franco-Scottish Society in St Andrews to enable Teri to have a work placement and experience in our twin town of Sainte Ménehould. This placement continues the link with the College as previous students from Elmwood have visited France, as part of an exchange organised through the National Leonardo Support Scheme. I hope that this will be the start of other such placements in future years. We wish Teri a great trip and look forward to hearing about her experience on her return to Fife.”
Teri is travelling to France with the Year 2000 football team from the Cupar Soccer Sevens who are also visiting the town to play football. This will be the fifth such visit by the club to Sainte Ménehould.
