A Night of Glitz and Glamour at the College Ball

June 11, 2013 at 9:48 AM

sample_Kents_4324.jpgThe theme was Elysium - an ancient Greek concept of heaven, happiness and bounty and with paradise as the backdrop, the 2013 College Ball was a fabulous evening of glamour and glitz for our Year 12 and 13 students.

Situated at the Queens Wharf hotspot, The Cloud, the venue’s undulating wave-like roof lent its name perfectly to the evening’s utopian theme. The sparkling views over the Waitemata Harbour were spectacular. Inside the classical Greek themed architecture complete with decorative gold pillars, vases wrapped with green ivy and thousands of fairy lights, transformed the night into a special moment in the College years of our students at Saint Kentigern.

Our girls were stunning, with the attention to detail in their hair, beautiful flowing gowns both long and short and gorgeous makeup they were a picture of elegance. Our boys were groomed to perfection, dapper in their smart suits, ties and polished shoes!

It was evident our emerging young adults were positively proud to be attending their own College Ball, and our students’ manners and politeness was a fitting tribute to the occasion. The night unfolded seamlessly and our students’ individual responsibility of taking care of themselves and others was pleasing to see.

Following a sumptuous buffet dinner, sashes were awarded with much delight to the following for the evening:

Couple of the Ball – Shinga McLeod and Nick Williams
Best Dressed Girl – Samantha Bogun
Most Outrageous Suit – Blue Hamel
Prince and Princess –Ben Riedstra and Tessa Hunt
King and Queen – Maxim Ching and Letitia Puni
Best Dressed Teacher – Mr Bill Tutty

We thank the Student Council for the work they undertook, along with Mrs Natalie Burridge and chairperson of the Council, Lucy Broadhead, in planning the Ball. They were responsible for making decisions on the theme, the venue, catering, the DJ, decorations, photographer, designing the tickets, collecting forms, distributing tickets, speaking at assemblies and the very challenging job of placing people at tables. And finally, they organised the buses home!
