At ELTHAM, we strive to ensure that all our young people are world-ready. A crucial element to this is equipping them with the life-skills they need to graduate from college.
ELTHAM owns and operates a Hospitality Training Centre and fully-functional winery, café and restaurant called Swipers Gully.
Students in Years 8 and 9 operate the College Coffee Shop within the restaurant, with particular focus on Year 9 students exploring employment and work experience opportunities.
The Centre also allows Years 10, 11 and 12 students to participate in a number of VET and VCE options as well as Vocational certificates – with most of our young people participating in at least one.
Students use their skills to work in the industry, with graduates going on to work at internationally acclaimed restaurants.
The Swipers Gully Restaurant is open to the public during the school term: Monday to Thursday. Guests need to be seated between 6.30pm – 7.00pm. The Term 1 menu is available here.
So come join us for a delicious meal and you’ll also be helping our students gain nationally accredited training qualifications in Hospitality. Win, win.
Coffee shop is open during the school term: Monday to Friday 10.00am – 1.00pm.
