On the evening of Thursday 21st October, it was at last time to say our goodbyes to our previous Year 11 at their farewell prom held at the Barton Grange Hotel.
The girls began to arrive, looking resplendent in their gowns and suits. It was great to see them all looking so amazing and already some of them were hard to recognise from our blue-jumpered pupils of just a few months before. The weather was against us, howling wind and driving rain greeted most of them as they were dropped off, but that didn’t dampen the warm and friendly atmosphere of the event.
Prior to the meal, it was great to chat to the girls, finding out about college courses, new interests and friendships. Dinner was delicious and was promptly followed by some table competitions to get the party started. Both the fun photo booth and the official photographer were a great success.
The DJ kept the entertainment going, even encouraging staff participation and performances. Girls and their partners danced the night away and many a high heel was discarded in the process.
It was a fantastic evening with lots of happy faces. A fabulous finale to their time at Penwortham Girls’ and more than well-deserved following all their hard work over this unique and challenging year. We look forward to seeing them all again at our Awards evening on November 11th.
Head of Year 11 ‘Class of 2021’
