Year 11 Prom –  Monday 25th June 2018 saw Stone Hill’s very first Prom! The impetus came from the Y11 school council representative, Rhianna, but was quickly and whole heartedly championed by her classmates and all of the staff. The support from parents was amazing and thanks to the generosity of Rhianna’s mum’s friends we had professional beauticians come in to do hair and make-up; the results were stunning! Our Y11 boys looked handsome and so grown up in their suits and our girls were real ‘belles of the ball’. Mrs Arnison and the kitchen staff put on a spectacular spread and the dining hall was transformed into the ideal prom venue with music, lights and bunting! Pupils also had their own ‘pop-up photo booth’, courtesy of Ms Lewis and the boys in particular took great delight in donning feather bowers and crazy hats to take goofy snaps together! Throughout the evening Y11 were treated to a ride in a gold, chauffer driven, stretch limousine (accompanied, of course by a delighted member of staff!) The evening ended with a tribute to their much loved, and much missed friend, Evan. His peers were adamant that he should be a part of the celebrations and this was whole heartedly supported by staff who felt the same. Everyone wrote their own private message for him which was then tied to a balloon. The balloons were released at the front of the school with a heartfelt salute to his memory. It was a fitting conclusion to a wonderful evening.

The tradition has been established and the standard set… it will take some beating!
