Platters on Willow

Platters on Willow is a catering enterprise made up of Hospitality students from Redbank Plains State High School.
Coordinator and experienced teacher Kara Pulou started Platters on Willow in 2008 seeing an opportunity in the catering market for Indigenous inspired finger food. Since then this school based enterprise has grown largely through word of mouth referrals.
Many Platters on Willow clients are repeat customers and include the University of Southern Queensland, Ipswich City Council, QATSIF & other Queensland Government organisations.

In 2012 Platters on Willow catered the Federal Government Community Cabinet Meeting held at Redbank Plains State High School. Prime Minister Julia Gillard had high praise for the quality of finger food served and professionalism of the Platters on Willow team.
Just a quick post-event email to​ thank you and your students for all of the hard work and delicious food you put together for our “Raw” art and music exhibition last Thursday evening.  We received overwhelmingly positive feedback from many of our staff and guests about the food and service and we have received a clear direction to engage your services again in the future. It was such a special event for us and you and your students really delivered​ - Norton Rose Fulbright (June 2015)
Congratulations to you and your band of willing and hospitable workers and say again that you and your team did a first-class job. Each of the finger-food was a taste sensation in itself and your choice of ingredients was original.   Your presentation was appealing and of the highest standard. Each one of your helpers was interactive and very personable and apparently well-suited to hospitality.  Please convey my thanks and appreciation to them - Gerard Shannon (July 2015)
I just wanted to write you a quick email to thank yourself and the kids for your wonderful and friendly service yesterday. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food, and the kids were an absolute delight, as well as being very professional at all times. Thank-you for your contribution and help with the Speaking Out 25th event - ABC Local Radio (July 2015)
