NASHS had extended an invitation to the captains of the other Albany schools who were happy to join us and were great representatives of their own Year 12 cohorts.
After taking a year group photo, we walked through the entry and into the Kalyenup studio where the Ball working party had worked hard earlier in the day to set the 'up in lights' decoration. Thank you to those students who were able to make it down to help and also to Mums - Tania, Emma and Jo, who all assisted in making the night special.
The dancefloor was full from the start thanks to our enthusiastic DJ, Mr Le Page, as everyone enjoyed rocking to old and new songs. Kaelin and Ameilia returned to do wandering photo duties and many students made their way down to Mr Marchment to get their photos taken in a more formal setting.
Making the selection of Belle and Beau was difficult as there were so many students who not only looked amazing but also made the staff very proud. Cheyenne was selected Belle of the Ball and Tony was voted Beau of the Ball. We had many people who showed us their fancy footwork, with Sonya, Xavier and Brooke all taking the honours for their dance moves and Riley and Tasharn proving to be the life of the Ball. Jorja and Thomas and Emmali and Lucas won the votes for cutest couples.
By 9.30 pm the feet were getting sore and the students said their farewells. A number of students made the point of thanking staff as they left, which was really appreciated, and I would like to add my thanks to the staff who not only assisted in making the night so wonderful but also those who helped behind the scenes.
I am so proud to be a part of the NASHS community and to show Albany how incredible the students are, the AEC staff made time to let us know how respectful and thoughtful our students were and how they enjoyed working with us.
Well done Class of 2021!
