The irony of the immaculate outfits the boys wore (with their shirts tucked in and incredible neat haircuts) was that this was not always how they presented in their time at the College. They all looked great on the evening and showed just how far they had come from the innocence of their start in Year 7.
The night was less formal than previous years with minimal speeches, but we had the opportunity to listen to Jackson Robb, Joey Hussein, and Daniel Brazier for a final time. Their speeches were heartfelt and were well received by their peers, a fitting finale to their time at St Edward’s.
The marquee with its massive dance floor was a great hit, being well utilised up until our 10 pm curfew. The students and their partners had a great night and genuinely appreciated the efforts the College went to, in hosting the Formal on such a tight timeline for preparation.
I would like to thank all the staff who worked so hard in putting the night together. Cathy Ginsberg, Meagan Armstrong and Julie Connors for their tireless preparations, Mark Bonnici for his vision and drive to host the formal when so many schools cancelled their formals. A big thanks to the staff that worked on the evening; Paul English working with the amazing student helpers, Gerry Summerhayes as MC, and Sarah Evans for taking photos. Thank you to everyone for making the night so successful.
