School Ball

The Whangaparaoa College 9th Annual Ball took place last Saturday night at the Crowne Plaza in Auckland City.  Around 250 Year 12 and 13 learners attended.  The theme for the ball this year was ‘Alice in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass’. The venue was set up with various decorations including 4 amazing paintings of the Mad Hatter, Cheshire Cat, The Red Queen and Alice in Wonderland. They were done by Harry Creevey, Jasmine Greenwood, Casta Lawson and Lauren Davies. The photography provided by Cactus Photography, was exceptional this year and captured the key highlights of the ball.  The DJ that the Crowne Plaza provided for us on the night, created an atmosphere that was unforgettable, with music that lasted the entire night.  It was amazing going back to school on Monday and hearing all the positive comments about the ball throughout the day. The teachers and Year 13’s stated that it was the best ball they had been to so far.
A big thank you to Mrs Duffill and the ball committee, for all the hard work they put into making the ball the amazing night that it was.
