Students at Southlands High School celebrated in style as they dressed up to the nines for their end of year prom.
Year 11 ladies and gents ditched their uniforms for dresses and suits, turned their backs on the classroom and headed to Rivington Barn, Horwich. From classic 50s American pick up trucks to stretch limousines, sports cars to state of the art party buses, the party-goers chosen mode of transport was as varied as the colour of dresses making it a special occasion for all.
Over 100 students attended the event organised by the prom committee, led by Head of Year, Mrs Price, who selected a red, white and blue colour scheme.
“The venue looked absolutely stunning on the night,” said Mrs Price “All the decorations were themed to this including the menus, table decorations and balloons to give the event a very stylish feel. The evening was fantastic and really illustrated the commitment and loyalty of the students. All looked fantastic and we are really very proud of each and every one.”
During the night, students also saw a special film show of photographic memories, created by their teachers which captured all their special times at Southlands High School.
The students were entertained by dancers, a magician, a Grammy award style prize evening and a singing performance from their teachers!
To attend the prom, students had to meet a criteria which included excellent attendance, attitude and behaviour, sitting all exams and completing all coursework. The evening was a fantastic celebration for all their hard work and to mark the end of their time at secondary school.
“It was a fantastic event and the students are a tremendous credit to Southlands High School.” – Mark Fowle, Head teacher
