Graduation Class 2017
Inaugural Graduation Class of 2017

On the 14th of October 2017, Sanon held its inaugural graduation ceremony for students who had completed Sanon’s training program.

The day was a great success. The ceremony was attended by representatives of government, other local officials, family and friends of the students and training staff.

In total 15 students graduated. Each student upon receiving their graduation certificate gave a short address to the attendees in Burmese and English.

The Sanon training program included theoretical and practical training in 'Front of House' and Beverage Services and Kitchen, OHS and Food Safety as well as English language lessons and a two-week work experience placement with another hospitality or tourism organization. Students also actively participated in all aspects of the day to day operations of the Sanon Training Restaurant gaining valuable work-ready experience and skills.
