We Want You in Hospitality & Tourism Ascot Academy & Mercure KK collaborate with MyCenTHE

17th November, 2017

KOTA KINABALU: Mercure Kota Kinabalu City Centre welcomed 40 secondary school students from SMK Bandaraya for its first collaboration with Ascot Academy since its grand opening on 23rd October 2017. This inaugural cooperation was done in support of MyCenTHE National Awareness Campaign 2017 which is to promote Hospitality and tourism industry to students from local schools. The students were chaperoned by the School Catering coordinators, Puan Fatimah Hj. Digong and Puan Nurul Maria Ahmad.

MyCenTHE is a national initiative under the National Transformation Programme (NTP) launched with the aim of providing Malaysia’s expanding tourism and hospitality industries with quality human capital since November 2010. Ascot Academy is one of the members for MyCenTHE Sabah.

Upon arrival, the school entourage was welcomed by Mr. Jacques Leizerovici; General Manager of Mercure Kota Kinabalu City Centre (Mercure KKCC), Mr. Ya’kob Zaini; Executive Assistant Manager and the rest of his management team. The students were directed to Mercure’s privilege room which is located at the 25th floor for a presentation of Accor Hotels and the prospect of working with the brand by Ms. Aleecia Pramlee, the Talent & Culture (HR) Manager.

A sharing session by Chef Mohd Irwan Lie, our local Sabahan Executive Chef and Beverage Manager of Mercure KKCC was very much anticipated as most of the students attended the event were from the catering class of SMK Bandaraya. Chef Irwan not only shared his background and journey into the culinary world and with Accor hotels but also provide crucial motivation and inspiration to the students. The students were thoroughly impressed and hope to follow in the footsteps of their new local Culinary Hero, Chef Irwan.

After the session, the students were divided into two (2) groups for Housekeeping and Food & Beverage demonstration. The 3 hours visit ended with a sumptuous buffet lunch at Maupassant Restaurant located at 2nd Floor of the hotel. The group photos were taken in front of the entrance of the hotel, where tokens of appreciation were presented to Mr. Ya’kob Zaini and Puan Fatimah Hj. Digong by Ascot Academy for their successful contribution to the MyCenTHE event.
