The parents got together and in just 3 days, a committee planned and put together a most wonderful Graduation Day.
It kicked off with breakfast at one house, followed by a Barbeque at another house. Up until this week, the weather here was as cold as winter and we had the heating on. But Mr. Sun showed up this week, and it has been glorious! Perfect BBQ weather.
Hubby volunteered to cook hot dogs and to help out, and he took a few photos.
For Wednesday night, the committee booked a hotel ballroom, and we had a really beautiful celebration of/for these young adults. They were all dressed up and looked fantastic! They were very well-behaved, there were some great speeches and musical performances by the students. Here she is making a speech about the Head Boy and Girl! No notes, just talked ad lib! I was one proud Mama!
Another highlight was the arrival of the Heineken Cup, but that was lost on me, I didn't recognise it!! All the fathers were queuing up to have their photo taken with it after the formal proceedings.
I'm still not sure where things stand as regards the school, but the memories from Graduation Day and night will stay with us for a long time.
I forgot to bring my camera with me, and this was the best of the pictures of the 3 of us we could get. I've tried to enhance it a bit with Photoshop, but the best I can say about it is that She looks well in it!
