We had lots of work to do. Team WGSHA stuck together and worked hard. Finally, we achieved the IFCA accreditation last month. The WACS accreditation then followed this. It is a testament /to the high standards of quality culinary education /provided here /at WGSHA. Besides national and international rankings, /WACS accreditation is yet another feather added/ to WGSHA’s crown. It gives us global visibility. The chief guest Dr H.
