Belles of the Ball
The Year 12 College Ball was held on Saturday 11 November at the Hyatt Regency. Students introduced their partners to Mr Elder and Mrs Oaten and enjoyed pre-dinner drinks, before walking the red carpet into the spectacular Grand Ballroom. The girls looked absolutely beautiful, and their partners equally handsome. Our Head Girl, Claire Ryan, gave an address before students were treated to a lovely three-course meal, and there was much excitement and conversation throughout the entire evening. The group were very eager to hit the dance floor, and were entertained with great music as the 360 students danced the night away.
The Ball is a beautiful way to formally mark the commencement of Year 12, by coming together as a cohort to celebrate friendships and create lasting memories. Thank you to all of the parents, staff and students involved in creating such a wonderful evening.
