For­est View gets glitzy for ball

South Waikato News - - Out & About - TA­MARA THORN

Glam­orous ladies and stylish men gath­ered to­gether re­cently to en­joy their night at the For­est View High School Em­pire ball.

The theme was de­rived from the TV Pro­gramme of the same name and in­cor­po­rated hip hop as an in­flu­ence.

The decision of the theme was made by the ball com­mit­tee who was made up by a col­lec­tion of year 11 to year 13 stu­dents.

In charge of the ball was Aaron Mu­tua who said ev­ery­thing went to plan.

‘‘I was stoked with ev­ery­thing, right from the red car­pet en­try to the kids enjoying their whole night.’’

He said he knew it was a suc­cess when the kids didn’t want to stop danc­ing.

The highlight for Mu­tua was the red car­pet and ‘‘see­ing young peo­ple feel like they are Hol­ly­wood stars’’.

He said the at­mos­phere that was cre­ated out­side by the peo­ple sup­port­ing and tak­ing pho­tos helped to set the mood.

For the first time For­est View held their ball inside their school at their au­di­to­rium.

Mu­tua said there was a task in try­ing to make the au­di­to­rium look like a place that wasn’t fa­mil­iar to the stu­dents but thought they had man­aged to achieve that.

A huge num­ber of peo­ple from the com­mu­nity came to sup­port the young peo­ple on the red car­pet which Mutu said was awe­some.

‘‘There would have been hun­dreds.’’

He said: ‘‘When stu­dents come to school on a Mon­day morn­ing and say how much of an awe­some night it was, you know it was a suc­cess.’’
