Youngsters from St Richard’s Catholic College celebrated their leavers’ prom at the Powdermills Hotel in Battle.
Pupils along with staff enjoyed the opportunity to look back on and celebrate their five years together.
They made a fantastic effort in dressing for the occasion and they arrived in an imaginative array of transport including a noisy arrival by motorbike and a very early arrival by army truck. Staff and families gathered to welcome the pupils on their arrival in the splendid grounds of the hotel.
After drinks and photographs, everyone proceeded to the Pavilion suite at the hotel which had been beautifully decorated by the school’s PTFA. A three-course meal was followed by speeches and a ‘special’ awards presentation. The final part of the evening enabled everyone to mingle and enjoy a disco.
Glenn Clark, Assistant Principal at St. Richard’s, thanked all the staff at the Powdermills, St Richard’s staff, pupils and their families for making it such an enjoyable and memorable event for all involved. He added: “Special mention should also go to Mrs Douglin and Mrs Hood for decorating the Pavilion suite so beautifully. I would like to join Miss Cronin, the Principal, and all the members of the college staff in wishing our Year 11 the best of luck for their future.”
