Students' Ball

Almost 420 glamorous students from the three local high schools walked the red carpet as they entered the Memorial Hall last Friday evening for the annual Home Hill Harvest Festival Student Ball. There were many proud parents and family members who filled the bleachers and lined the walkway to get a glimpse of the fantastic display of vehicles, formal gowns and stunning attire worn by our very handsome and elegant young adults. Mrs Katherine Falco and Mrs Warcon snapped dozens of photos which were uploaded and watched on a continuous slide presentation inside the hall. “Bush to Beach” was the theme this year which was epitomized by a spectacular display fairy lights and glitter. The hall and lights were truly a spectacular sight. Students entered the Memorial Hall through a beautifully lit doorway created by students from our Student Ball Committee with assistance from P&C members. Once inside students danced the night away to the beats from local DJ Brendan Ford.
Deputy Principal, Stephen Buttsworth kindly guided the night’s proceedings. The 2016 judges: Mrs Amanda Green, Ms Sarah Cornford, Mrs Deborah Prescott and Mr Connor Sanders had the most difficult task of picking the Belle, Beau and Special Mentions as well as the SAS and SWAGGER awardees for the night from a short listed group of six boys and six girls.

A big thank you goes to all our wonderful and very generous sponsors. Another thank you goes to the ladies from Empower Photography for taking some wonderful photos. We would also like to extend our thank you to the hard work and dedication of many parents, especially Sheree McKaig, Annmaree D’Alessandro, Fiona Cannavan, Delia Loizou, Lee-Anne Gelling, Robyn Dwyer and Allyson Falco and to all the others who contributed money and/or supplied and served the lovely food. A big thank you to all the fathers too who were able to help with the decorations, supervision and clean up. Many other parents and teachers gave up their time to supervise the students and for this the P&C is very grateful.
