Black and white makes Bright night

Alpine Observer - - News - By VANESSA BURGESS

BRIGHT P12 Col­lege year 11 stu­dents danced the night away at their in­clu­sive Black and White For­mal in Au­gust.

With a num­ber of stu­dents not want­ing to par­tic­i­pate in a tra­di­tional debu­tante ball, the year 11 co­hort - along with par­ents and the col­lege - de­cided to cre­ate an evening that would al­low all stu­dents to par­tic­i­pate.

Or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee mem­ber Kel­lie Gray said the year 11 stu­dents par­tic­i­pated in dif­fer­ent as­pects of the evening held on Au­gust 26.

“The theme for the evening was Black and White and the stu­dents chose to dress in ei­ther colour,” she said.

“There were still tra­di­tional part­nered dances, which were taught by Marg Wil­son free of charge as she wanted to give this skill back to the youth in our com­mu­nity, which was amaz­ing.

“Stu­dents were also given the option to learn con­tem­po­rary dances which were chore­ographed and taught by the Dani’s at Alpine Zumba, who also re­duced the cost to the stu­dents and they were a spectacular hit on the night.”

Each year 11 stu­dent was in­di­vid­u­ally pre­sented to 150 fam­ily mem­bers, friends and teach­ers, with a bi­og­ra­phy on their mem­o­rable life mo­ments and fu­ture as­pi­ra­tions.

The year 11’s all helped or­gan­ise and struc­ture the night from theme, fundrais­ing, dec­o­rat­ing, plan­ning, bud­get­ing and de­sign.

Dumu Bal­cony Café catered the evening and Bright P12 Col­lege year nine and 10 stu­dents re­ceived for­mal hos­pi­tal­ity train­ing to look after guests.
