Year 7s on a Treasure Hunt
By Year 7 Students
A unique experience for Year 7s who were taken on a Treasure Hunt this term. Year 12s led the way, organising an adventure-filled activity that the whole cohort could be involved in.

Glitz, glamour and gourmet food! This year’s Senior Ball had it all and certainly lived up to the hype! With ‘carriages’ arriving from 6.00pm, the foyer of the Marriott was filled to bursting point with onlookers as our Class of 2018 made their entrances.
There were “Oohs” and “Ahhs”, spray tans and false eyelashes, designer dresses and suits, high heels and bow ties. Indeed, Guinness World Records have presented the College with a ‘Highly Commended’ for the greatest number of photographs taken per second in any two-hour period!
Upon entering the Ballroom we were welcomed by Dr Brohier who, not only read a message from Mr Bassingthwaighte, but had composed a poem for the occasion! Following entrée, House Group photographs were taken on the Grand Staircase. One of the highlights of the evening was Karen Yee’s performance of When We Were Young – she was just brilliant! A photo story also reminded us all of how cute our Leavers were in the Junior School.
Thanks very much to the Year 12s involved in the Organising Committee, our Year 12 Co-ordinator Miss Lisa Connell the Student Leaders – Alexandra, Kydra, Uni, Jason, Gwyneth and Fletcher who spoke on the evening, our incomparable MCs: Cal Maloney and Katie Plume, and Suzie Frawley from our Events Team. Special thanks also to our video team: Samuel Liu, Thomas Liu, Leo Xin and Jack Daly who had every angle of the evening covered.« Back to IndexNext article in this edition »
