Our students looked stunning at their circus themed prom
It was a glorious warm, sunny evening when Ark William Parker and Ark Helenswood students were welcomed to their Year 11 Prom.
The students looking stunning and arrived in classic and innovative modes of transport. These included an array of prestigious cars and vehicles ranging from a vintage bus and 1950’s Buick to VW camper vans and even a tractor for an evening of celebration.
The young women in their beautiful gowns and young men in their extremely smart attire were greeted by their proud teachers and members of staff. They walked up the red carpet to the circus themed venue for an exciting evening of magic, music and dance to celebrate the end of this year’s exams.
The evening was a great success; the students had fun in the photo booth taxi, were enthralled by the magician, enjoyed circus themed food including candy floss, popcorn and ice cream and danced the night away to music provided by the DJ. A highlight of the evening was a spectacular firework display watched by all the guests before they headed back for their final dances and a massive balloon drop with glitter bombs.
Head of Year Graham Morris said, “It was a wonderful evening to celebrate the students officially finishing their secondary education at the school. The students had a great night and it was really good to see them so smartly dressed for the event.
Many thanks to all the parents and carers, students and colleagues for all their hard work in helping to make this event such a wonderful evening for all.”
Student Jay said “It was an amazing night and an amazing way to say goodbye to people you have grown close to over the previous five years.”
