Year 11 River Cruise

August 27, 2018

The Year 11 River Cruise was a resounding success. 131 students boarded the MV Captain Cook in a spectacular array of fashion from decades past. Special thanks go to members of staff, Bronwyn Schultz, Stef Ntoumenopoulos, Greg Hatfield, Brendan Selby, Howie Jakeway, Jen Prosser, Bennet Andrews and Tracey Gray who joined us in fancy dress for the evening. Thank you also to the Year 11 student volunteers who helped with the planning of the evening, packed the lolly bags, transported the snacks and water to the boat on the night and decorated the boat: Ally, Charis, Dani, Ella, Gemma, Holly, Ruby, Shannon and Sophie.

We were impressed by the effort that went into the costumes, the spirit of community and fun, as well as the maturity and respect shown on the night.  Everyone had a fantastic time.

Prizes were awarded and special mention must go to Jason for coming as Al Capone complete with the scar on his face and a mob of nearly a dozen men. Tamzen came as ‘Rosie the Riveter’ from the American World War II wartime poster. Tamzen and Jason took out the top prizes receiving a $50 Westfield Shopping Gift Card each. Other individuals who won prizes included Michael dressed as Dennis Lillee, Sam as John Travolta from Pulp Fiction, Elisha as a 90s boy band member, Micah as a 1970s surfer, Cambell as a Go Go Girl and Tom as Russell Coight. There were so many groups of students that looked amazing it was very difficult for the judges (teachers) to make a decision. In the end, prizes went to the 1980s Aerobics Girls (Mikayla, Kayla, Alicia, Holly and Juliette) who went all the way in their lycra and leg warmers to even crimping their hair. Sophie, Abi B and Faye were great as 1950s girls and Stacey, Tegan, Sascha, Abi C and Dakota won a prize for coming dressed as 1920s Flappers. Other groups that caught the judges’ eyes but didn’t win prizes were the boys in purple, the Spice Girls (two groups – both incredible), the nuns, the hippies and Jesus and his disciples. Photos will be posted on the school’s Facebook page, Secondary Newsletter and other publications very soon.
