Grad Dinner and Dance 2013

IMG_9448The grads of 2013 had a chance to enjoy their final moments as students of LFAS at Newlands Golf and Country Club on June 26th. The evening contained two separate events, the grad dinner and dry grad. The dinner and dance was organized by Ms. Robson and Ms. Delittle with the help of Ms. Davies and Ms. Taylor. The dry grad was organized by dry grad parents.

The students looked stunning as they walked into Newlands in their dresses and tuxedos. Long silky dresses, gems and jewels were a trend among the ladies.

The blessing which began the banquet was said by Faith Gole. Along with a well prepared buffet, both students and parents were entertained by several performances featuring some of the grads. In between the dinner, there were toasts to teachers, students and parents.

After the dinner, most grads stayed for the big surprise, which was the dry grad. The students changed into their casual clothes; the purpose of dry grad was to make a comfortable, relaxing and fun environment for the grads after the formal dinner.

The event kick started with a hypnosis performance where some students volunteered to be hypnotized. As the volunteers reacted to the hypnosis, the room was filled with excitement. The decorations of the dry grad were Medieval themed. The activities included a mechanical bull, casino, caricature, X Box Kinect, flip book (series of 20-30 images of the any student and turned into a mini still frame movie), Karaoke, dress-up, and basketball.

The most popular part of the night was the frozen yogurt from Menchie’s. This celebration continued until the next morning and the students left with good memories to last a life time.
