The rain was pouring down on the 5th September but that did not dampen the spirits of year 14. After weeks of preparation and excitement, and many gallons of fake tan and buckets of hair gel, the time had come for the St Louis formal.
Much fun was had by all and one of the highlights of the night was a nostalgic look back at what we once were, with the baby photos that were shown, and who we are now, with statements read out which were ‘kindly’ written by our friends who definitely did not put us in our best light.
The evening proceeded with the presentation of awards which was amazingly well organised and only went wrong throughout the whole thing (thanks to Mr Brown for messing it up)! Some of the coveted categories were ‘Best Catchphrase’, rather deservedly won by Mr McKinney and Mr Sloan. And the award for biggest poser? We’ll let you guess which pupil won that one.
After the awards the ‘dancing’ started. All care for expensive dresses left our minds as ‘Rock the boat’ was blasted out of the speakers and teachers and pupils took to the dance floor. S Club 7 turned everyone back into 10 year olds again and surprisingly most remembered the dance routines. As the pupils filed out into the rain for the after formal party it was agreed that a fantastic night was had by all.
