Black and white makes Bright night
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.
