The High Life by students of Spalding High School
Last Friday Whaplode Manor welcomed over 200 sixth form students along with their teachers from both Spalding High and Spalding Grammar for what proved to be a thoroughly enjoyable evening for everyone involved.
We were gathered together to celebrate the end of our time at our respected schools whether we had been there for two years, seven years or any length of time in-between.
The theme of the evening was ‘Casino Royale’ and that theme was upheld in great detail, from the dice-shaped confetti on the tables to the beautifully designed invitations – all thanks to a group of students from both schools who organised the event themselves.
On arrival, many had their pictures taken behind a very appropriate ‘007’ background and continued to dance the night away.
The evening’s entertainment came in the form of the band Audio Wave who played a wide range of songs both old and new, so students and teachers had something to dance to, as well as a fantastic fireworks display, which took place towards the end of the night.
Everyone gathered outside on the patio overlooking the picturesque gardens to marvel at the display for a few short minutes before returning inside for another hour or so of dancing.
The evening was a chance for students not only to mark the end of their time at school but also to let their hair down so to speak before beginning their final A Level exams.
It was also a chance to spend some much-needed time with friends and, of course, for many it was a very good excuse to get dressed up (we also got to check out the teachers’ dance moves, which were rather impressive)! It was a fitting way to end an era and a night many will not forget.
