NOT only did retiring NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione return to his old stomping ground at Bankstown last week, his farewell luncheon was catered for by students of his former Revesby high school.
Mr Scipione asked hospitality students from Sir Joseph Banks High School (pictured), to cater for his retirement luncheon, hosted by Bankstown Local Area Command last Friday.
Principal Murray Kitteringham said the students catered for over 200 police officers and dignitaries.
"Our students and staff thoroughly deserve this opportunity to showcase the high quality work that is happening at our school every day," he said.
Mr Kitteringham said the former commissioner shed a tear when Year 9 student, Abdullah Sankari delivered a congratulatory speech, thanking him for his years of community service, which shows how people from humble beginnings can go on to achieve 'truly amazing things'. "This has been a magnificent experience for the staff and students," he said.
