St Andrew’s College Matric Dance

After a packed weekend of sport against Queen's College, it was time for the Grade 12s of 2023 to get ready for the Matric Dance.

The Dining Hall was transformed into a forest, with trees and plants hanging from the roof and the walls. Pupils looked absolutely amazing, dressed in a great variety of colours and styles. Many couples decided to arrive in vehicles this year - to a big crowd on Knowling field. The evening was started with a word of welcome by Mr Hamilton, followed by an address by Sinjhun Cawse. After Elijah Sejjaaka said the table prayer the first hors d'oeuvres were served.

It didn't take long for the students to take to the dancefloor - and this is where the majority stayed the rest of the evening. An assortment of roaming bowls was presented as the main course.

Since 2020, the Matric Dance has taken on the format of a cocktail party with many different seating areas available all around the venue - this allows students to be more social and move around between friends as they enjoy the evening. The evening was ended off with dessert platters and warm drinks from the barista (and a few more songs to dance to). 

A big word of thanks to Go Events for all their effort in creating a beautiful space - I was blown-away by the transformation from normal dining hall to real life plants (and a bird) in the St Andrew's forest. Once again Capitol Catering ensured that there was plenty to eat and the favourite of the night, off course, was the sushi!!
