GC Matric Dance 2023
The Girls’ College Matric Dance was held on Saturday 13 May 2023. The Matrics were welcomed to an Old Italy themed venue. The Dace Hall was draped from floor to ceiling in black linen and lights surrounded by millions of candles and the smell of fresh lemon zest. Thanks to load shedding we had a moment of darkness when the power came back on, but the interior lighting then shone in all its glory!
The guests arrived as the sun set and were greeted by a crowd of cheering students, parents, siblings and a pathway of lights, all excited to see their idols dressed in gorgeous outfits. As they entered the hall and took in the decorations, they were ushered into taking a photo and were led outside to drink sparkling grape juice and take in the views. The guests were offered an array of sweets and treats before entering the hall for the formal proceedings.
Welcomes and greetings were said by Dr James, Head Girl Jozi Nupen, and the MD Committee. The excitement in the hall was palpable and there was nothing but smiles throughout the room. The buffet opened and the queue formed quickly for the delectable food. Thank-yous were said, an award ceremony was held for the Matrics and then dance floor was opened.
The night came to an end and the Matrics departed. It was an amazing evening that will never be forgotten.
