Minister of Primary Resources and Tourism Dato Seri Setia Awang Hj Ali bin Hj Apong addressed a key note speech during the launch of the Culinary School at Laksamana College of Business recently
I liked what the Minister of Primary Resources and Tourism Dato Seri Setia Awang Hj Ali bin Hj Apong said during his remarks on the launch of the Culinary School at Laksamana College of Business. He said that Brunei need more chefs rather than cooks because chefs can create impact both locally and internationally. I would totally agree on that as being a chef is an entirely different ball game.
I was honoured to witness the official launch of the new Culinary School at Laksamana College of Business and the set up itself was pretty up to standard I must admit. The culinary school has a proper kitchen (see thru concept), preparation area, study area and of course, the dining area to serve the customers.
I could see that LCB has put their sweat and efforts in making the culinary school possible and finally it was officially launched. Being the syllabus coming from City & Guilds, do expect a reputable learning experience for the culinary students guided and facilitated by highly qualified chefs.
I also could see the passion and dedication from the front line (waiters and waitresses), the preparation crew team and the cooking team. They just started the course a few weeks ago and the launch event was their biggest task to date where they served a three course meal to the invited guests at the dining area of the Culinary School.
I was quite pleased to see such establishment and course made available in Brunei and furthermore, with the guidance of the reputable chefs, the students will be able upgrade themselves in the world of culinary.
The Culinary School, one of the first private culinary schools set up in Brunei Darussalam, offers students two City & Guilds culinary programmes: the Level 1 Certificate in Food Preparation and Cooking and Level 2 Diploma in Food Preparation and Cooking.
The Level 1 Certificate covers all the main elements of food preparation, while the Level 2 Diploma builds on the Level 1 Certificate course.
For more details, you can visit Laksamana College of Business website.

Laksamana College of Business (LCB) recently held two graduation ceremonies, one for the University of Chester UK degree students and the other for BTEC Programmes, University Foundation Course and Kensington College of Business (KCB) Programmes Students. A total of 103 graduated from the Chester University courses while over 400 students graduated from the other courses in LCB.
The first graduation ceremony was graced by the Minister of Education, Yang Berhormat Dato Paduka Awang Hj Hamzah bin Sulaiman. Also present were Mr. Ian Pirie, Principal Director of KCB/LCB, Awang Hj Suhaimei bin Hj Awang Besar, Director of LCB and Mr. Sivarajah Subramaniam, CEO and Deputy Principal of LCB. The second graduation ceremony was graced by Datin Seri Paduka Dr. Hjh Romaizah bin Hj Mohd Salleh, Deputy Minister of Eduction.
In the Chester University program, 11 students received first-class honours.
Ian Pirie mentioned of a new programme during his welcoming remarks. In September, LCB will open a new culinary school and launching to new degree courses in Hospitality and Tourism. Speaking of culinary, there will be a first Brunei young chef competition. Interesting. These courses are introduced due to the rising demands.
He also mentioned of new Masters and first degree level courses in Computing, Finance and Management in response to the increasing need for computing staff.
He believed the LCB Student Council has played an important role for the institution. They have assisted in the Graduation ceremonies and also LCB 15th year anniversary celebration apart from the sports and social events. He thanked both Zara and Saufi, outgoing President and Vice-President of the Student Council for their contribution.
So LCB has been impressed in building their reputation. Ever since year 2003, they have over 4,000 students who have graduated and completed their courses at LCB. I remember visiting the premises when it only had limited space and now LCB have expanded and upgraded their facilities to cater to the growing demand of students.
LCB is definitely a good college and I have a few friends who are currently studying in Laksamana. There is perhaps room to register for September intake. You can visit their website for more details and also follow their IG @lcb_brunei
