Spe­cial school ready to present debu­tantes

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Hor­sham Spe­cial School com­mu­nity will cel­e­brate the school’s sec­ond debu­tante ball to­mor­row night.

The ball, at Hor­sham Town Hall, is called ‘Finger­prints’ to high­light ‘the unique beauty of each and every one of us’.

Ten cou­ples, in­clud­ing present and past stu­dents, have been busy prac­tic­ing dance steps un­der the tute­lage of Rachael Krahe, James Mcrae and Jan Mor­ris.

Debu­tantes will be pre­sented at 7pm, in what or­gan­is­ers have de­scribed as a ‘show­piece spec­tac­u­lar’ for stu­dents, staff, fam­i­lies and the Wim­mera com­mu­nity.

Debu­tantes will present to spe­cial guests Mem­ber for Lowan Emma Kealy and school coun­cil pres­i­dent An­drea Mu­gari, as well as prin­ci­pal Matt Cop­ping and as­sis­tant prin­ci­pal Re­becca Tal­bot.

Ms Tal­bot said the lead-up to the event had been full of ex­cite­ment, hard work and pride for all of the stu­dents in­volved. “Dance lessons dur­ing the past two months have pro­vided the op­por­tu­nity for par­tic­i­pants to hone skills and abil­i­ties while hav­ing a lot of fun,” she said.

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

Ms Tal­bot said for­mal pre­sen­ta­tion would oc­cur in the main the­atre of the town hall.

This would be fol­lowed by sup­per and danc­ing with a DJ in the cen­tre’s her­itage hall.

She said the school ex­tended an open in­vi­ta­tion to Wim­mera peo­ple to at­tend the event.

Peo­ple can buy tick­ets through Hor­sham Town Hall box of­fice or by go­ing on­line to town hall web­site www.hor­sham­town­hall.com.au/type/ events/.

Ad­mis­sion is $20 per per­son with doors open­ing from 6.30pm.
