Gresham's leavers step out in Gatsby style

Published Wednesday 3rd of July 2013 12:32:17 PM

The 2013 Gresham�s Upper Sixth Form celebrated their time at the School with a Twenties themed Gatsby Ball held in a marquee in the School grounds. The Ball was the climax to a very exciting weekend which saw former pupil Olivia Colman return to the School for Speech Day and to present prizes to Gresham�s Sixth Form leavers.

350 guests attended the Ball and started the evening with a champagne reception. There was a dazzling display of costumes and outfits in keeping with the Great Gatsby look, from flapper dresses to stunning avant-garde accessories. The Ball was organised by a Committee of willing parents and members of staff to ensure a truly memorable evening for leavers and their families. Kathy John, a member of the organising committee, said, �Parents on the Ball committee were delighted with the success of the event, and even the weather decided to play its part!�

A delicious three-course meal was provided by Gresham�s catering team in the beautifully decorated marquee, where a resident magician performed for guests at their tables. After dinner the guests danced the night away to Justin Myers and The American Dream Bootleggers, followed by a disco provided by Gresham�s own resident DJs Chris Cooper and Sam Curtis.
