An elegant and fun evening at the Matric Dance

As the sun set, spectators gathered on Worcester Street, in anticipation of the Grade 12’s arrival. The matrics and their partners did not disappoint – clearly a lot of thought and planning went into the methods of arrival this year – donkey carts to tractors. As every meal of a student’s career at College is served in the Clapham Jubilee Dining Hall, attention to detail in the décor was a top priority. The “cocktail party” format allows for a more social and fluid environment, with canapés served throughout the evening. Dancing started before the welcome speech and continued until the final song was requested. It is such a blessing that the weather played along to ensure that the night was enjoyed.

A huge thank you to each and every person who played a part in creating a fun, beautiful and successful evening:

  • Capitol Catering for the most amazing food – when teenagers compliment the food, you know!
  • GO Events – Nicky, Amy and the incredible team who transformed the venue.
  • The St Andrew’s IT department for sound and lighting.
  • The St Andrew’s Marketing Department for livestreaming the arrivals.
  • The Ground Staff and Maintenance teams for transporting décor and installing lights.
  • Grade 11 and Grade 8 students who assisted with the order of events and waitering on the night.
