Redbridge College turned green, white and gold for St Patrick’s Day.
Trainee chef Mariella Creegan put on a special event to celebrate the saint’s day on Thursday.
Level 3 chefs at the college run their own events at the college’s Rouge Restaurant at its Little Heath campus on Thursday nights.
Mariella served up a selection of traditional Irish dishes for the sell-out event.
She said: “I always struggled at school but didn’t get the support I needed, so after being diagnosed with dyslexia and dyscalcius my mum home-schooled me until Connections helped me to get a place at Redbridge College.

“I was only 14 but they started me on entry level and gave me the support I had needed for so many years. It was a breath of fresh air to be accepted and guided.
“I had already decided I wanted to become a chef so each year I worked my way up. The college also helps with one-to-one support if needed and I do maths and English as well.
