A night to remember

“Morocco” was the theme for the 2018 Matric Farewell. With its rich colours and phenomenal décor, it couldn’t have been more perfect. The Matrics arrived at “The Summit Lifestyle and Event Centre”, where the farewell was held, and brought traffic to a standstill, literally. As they slowly trickled in, we completely understood why… they were dressed to the nines and ready for an unforgettable night of delicious food and crazy dance moves.

Our principal, Mr Norman, our FET Phase Head, Mrs Van der Vyver, along with our BLC Chairperson and Head Prefects delivered beautiful speeches that motivated the Matrics to strive for greater things. In between all these speeches, the meals were served.

From the starter, right through to desert, chatter and laughter filled the halls of the venue and as suspected, there were no dull moments. Mrs Van Greunen was heard saying, “At some point, we thought we’d need to open the dance floor soon, or they would open it themselves. That’s how excited they were.” After the opening of the dance floor, the real party got started.

Mrs Potgieter and Miss Hudson, the teachers who organised the farewell, are truly a force to be reckoned with. It was their first time planning a Matric Farewell and they surpassed all expectations. We can’t wait to see what they do next year.
