How will Class Chefs maintain a COVID-Safe Environment at Cucina 105?

The wellbeing of our participants remains our highest priority. COVID-19 measures are implemented in accordance with the latest advice from NSW Department of Education, SafeWork Australia and the Australian Government Department of Health. Policies and procedures are indicative on the advice from the government.

If you purchased a ticket on behalf of someone else, you are liable to communicate the above Terms and Conditions to them or they may be denied entry upon arrival.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

  • The road to the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre (CPAC) may not appear on many GPS/mobile devices. Enter via Shepherd St, 1 Powerhouse Rd, Casula NSW 2170 (just past the Paper Mill precinct).
  • There will be plenty of free parking including an overflow car park.

There is no need to print your ticket, your name will be on a list when you arrive. We will only require a digital version of the ticket in the unlikely event there is a discrepancy.

Can I make a group seating request?

Yes (Indicative only, subject to COVID-19 guidelines).

Tickets purchased in the same transaction will automatically be seated on the same table. For tickets purchased separately, every effort will be made to accommodate your requests (seating time and seat arrangements etc) Please state your request clearly. Please ensure that all parties on your table arrive at the same time. The Entrees (shared platters) will not be served until all parties on your table are seated.

Why is this Class Chefs meal/event so cheap? What’s the catch?

The subsidised special pricing is possible through the schools’ partnership with SWC and Training Services NSW’s Regional Industry Education Partnerships (RIEP) initiative.

The RIEP initiative strengthens connections between industry and schools. RIEP helps students develop the skills they need to get a job by linking what is learned at school and what is needed in the workplace.

Class Chefs is an exciting hands-on learning opportunity for students, they will encounter the same challenges and pressures faced by most busy fine dining establishments. Students are showcasing their skills as part of their course assessment and we appreciate your patience and understanding during the Class Chefs Event.

Is my ticket transferrable?

Tickets are transferrable and can be given to anyone to attend in your place, please forward your ticket to them. Your ticket will show a unique transaction number and barcode along with your selected meal options. If there is a different meal preference, please contact the organiser prior to the event and notify your waiter of the change.

What’s the refund policy?

A refund is offered if a cancellation is made via email or Eventbrite more than 7 days before the event (see above). Refunds will only be accepted more than 7 days before the event. Please note that if you request a refund, the Eventbrite booking fee will be deducted from the original purchase price of each ticket (approx. $5 booking fee per ticket will be deducted from your refund). Your refund will return to your original payment method within 7-10 business days (full ticket price amount minus the Eventbrite booking fee). If you would prefer to transfer your ticket to someone else, please email events@swconnect.org.au with the name, phone number and email of the person you are transferring your ticket to.
