A Beautiful Summer Evening
On Friday 29 June, over three hundred students and staff descended upon the Crowne Plaza Hotel to enjoy the ever popular Summer Ball, which had been meticulously planned by the newly elected Student Leadership Executive Team, comprising Head Girl, Liela Alsugair, Head Boy, Aditya Mori, Deputy Head Girls, Ingrid Bahnemann, Jamie Clark and Alison Ross, and Deputy Head Boys, Adam Shamma and Luke Wilson. Stylish and elegant in their finery, the students enjoyed a vibrant reception where the photo booths and photo opportunities with photographers on the night, Jaden Edgar and Raul Vlajic, proved a strong draw. On entry to the grand Ballroom, students and staff were greeted by the excellent tunes of the Big Band and, following a welcome by Liela and Aditya and Head of Senior School, Mr Nick Wilson, the audience was treated to Luke Wilson’s beautiful rendition of Feeling Good by Michael Bublé. The buffet was formally opened and, after a few more swing numbers from the excellent Big Band, the students settled down to enjoy the post-prandial entertainment, the poignant baby photos of Year 13, the Commencement video, student awards and dancing. Many thanks indeed to Swatti Khanna, Crowne Plaza Meetings Manager and her team for their invaluable and excellent assistance. A great night.
