Community Matters

An Enchanted Evening

The Presentation Ball lived up to its expectation as a major event on the Year 11 calendar last Saturday night in the Grand Hall at The Centre Ivanhoe. Over 400 guests witnessed the presentation of 60 young men and women to the Federal member for Deakin, Mr Michael Sukkar and our Principal, Mr Bradley Fry. The young ladies and gentlemen who participated can be congratulated on a wonderful evening that showcased tradition, sophistication, elegance and style. A very special thank you to the Ball coordinators who work tirelessly throughout the term and earlier to bring this event to fruition: Sharyn Frisby, Kerrie Maywald and Kylie Spears. Thanks are also extended to the volunteers on the night who assist the smooth running of the evening: Amanda McKenzie, Ruby Nagendran, Roshini Higgins, Anne Antoniou, Aimee Spears, Mikki Lacey and Mel Prior. The night was definitely an enchanted evening.
