Five Star Rating Proves Fresh is Best

Every day, the youngest members of our A.B. Paterson College community sit down to dine at one of our city’s top-rated establishments, when it comes to food safety.

Our very own Early Childhood Centre kitchen has been awarded City of Gold Coast’s highest rating of five stars!

Early Childhood Centre Director, Caitlin Janetzki reveals, “The ECC kitchen – led by Kitchen Administrator, Christina Hunter (pictured below) – underwent thorough assessment by City of Gold Coast Environmental Health Officers, as part of the new Eat Safe Gold Coast scheme.”

Launched in November 2017, the scheme allows businesses to promote their efforts in hygiene and cleanliness to their stakeholders and clients.

A three star rating indicates good food safety, four stars reflects very good food safety, while a coveted five star rating indicates excellent food safety standards.

According to the City of Gold Coast website, these “rating schemes operate alongside regulatory systems and have been effective in reducing food related illnesses in cities across the world such as New York, Los Angeles, Auckland, Toronto and London.”

We congratulate Christina and the ECC team for achieving a result - with their fresh daily approach - that some of our city’s most popular restaurants can only aspire to.
