Te Kuiti High School Wild Wild West Ball

Last Friday night saw the annual School Ball attended by over 140 year 11 -13 students. It was a successful evening and all the students went above and beyond on their appearance and choice of formal wear. To see the young ladies in the traditional ball gowns and the young men looking smart in suits was very impressive. Staff who attended also dressed for the occasion, going along with the theme of Wild Wild West. Even the Principal played his role perfectly as the sheriff.

The successful evening was a culmination of planning, discussions, building, painting, propping, and fetching under the watchful eye of many staff members. The event is one of many highlights for the final time for year 13 students before leaving school.

The hall was decorated appropriately along the lines of this years’ theme with saloon doors at the entrance way. The photo booth too was decorated appropriately with many shots taken by Marama Shearer of Thrive Photography. The evening progressed with a range of music provided by Troy da Silva of Blackjack and students were treated with a delectable buffet put together by Ms Kearins and parents from Home and School.

By popular choice, this years’ prince and princess were Tyson Ah Cheung and Juanita Ogle-Mikara while the King and Queen were James Gordon and Waikauri Cleary.
