A Formal to Remember

The hail and torrential downpour did not dampen the excitement on the Year 12 night of nights, as they gathered for their penultimate school event, the Year 12 Formal.

With the picturesque Glen Ewin Estate as the backdrop, the students enjoyed canapés and drinks under the shelter of the alfresco area, before making their grand entrance along the red carpet. Introduced by the evening’s MC, Mr du Preez, the Year 12s and their teachers settled down at grouped tables for an entrée, followed by a main course of bountiful shared platters.

In attendance were teachers both current and past, including Reception teacher, Mrs Crawford and Year 6 teachers, Miss Dix and Mrs Jettner, who were able to reminisce with students about their Primary School days. Taking to the dance floor, the Year 12s enjoyed the Nutbush (another Primary School memory), as the evening switched pace to a party atmosphere. Once again the Formal committee, headed by Mrs Jettner, created a very special evening, and one that is sure to remain in the memories of the Year 12s as the perfect way to end their school days.
