Spe­cial school set to cel­e­brate debu­tantes

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Hor­sham Spe­cial School com­mu­nity will cel­e­brate its in­au­gu­ral debu­tante ball at Hor­sham Town Hall to­mor­row.

Ten cou­ples, in­clud­ing present and past stu­dents, have been busy prac­tis­ing their dance steps un­der the tute­lage of Jan Mor­ris, with Don Papst or­ches­trat­ing mu­sic.

The debu­tantes will be pre­sented in what will be a show­piece spec­tac­u­lar for the school’s stu­dents, staff, fam­i­lies and the Wim­mera com­mu­nity.

Hor­sham mayor Pam Clarke and Fed­er­a­tion Univer­sity as­so­ciate pro­fes­sor and Wim­mera cam­pus head Ge­of­frey Lord will be guests of honour at the pre­sen­ta­tion.

Debu­tantes will present to Mr Lord and Cr Clarke, along with school prin­ci­pal Matt Cop­ping and as­sis­tant prin­ci­pal Re­becca Tal­bot.

Mr Cop­ping said the lead-up to the event had been full of ex­cite­ment, hard work and pride for all of the stu­dents in­volved. “Dance lessons over the past month have pro­vided the op­por­tu­nity for stu­dents to hone their skills and abil­i­ties in a brand new way, while hav­ing a lot of fun at the same time,” he said.

“The for­mal sig­nif­i­cance of the de­but is of great im­por­tance also, as each stu­dent be­comes a young adult in the Hor­sham and wider Wim­mera com­mu­nity.”

On the night, the for­mal pre­sen­ta­tion will oc­cur in the town hall’s main the­atre. This will be fol­lowed by sup­per and danc­ing in the cen­tre’s tra­di­tional flat-floor hall.

Hor­sham Spe­cial School has in­vited the Wim­mera com­mu­nity to the event, with tick­ets avail­able at Hor­sham Town Hall or on­line at the town hall web­site www.hor­sham­town­hall.com.au/ hthevent/hor­sham­spe­cial-school-debu­tante-ball/.

Ad­mis­sion is $20 a per­son, with seating from 6.30pm.
