To begin with, I am a new student. So it would be interesting to share my first impression of Saint John’s Catholic School.
Well, at five years old, my new school has certainly come a long way. But what I really like about Saint John’s is its provision for a variety of activities that serve the students’ interests, one of which was the Prom Night.
The Prom Night took place at the school’s function hall last February 19, 2010. A post-Valentine’s party, the prom was mainly to symbolize Grade 12 class’ “passing of legacy” to Grade 11 students.
The Prom Night was scheduled to start at 6.00. It was a Friday night. Like the rest of my classmates, I had a makeover from head to toe. I didn’t bring my boyfriend to escort me. Mr. Ahmed and Ms. Amel told me that I would have another male partner for the cotillion.
Prior to the event, I had an “early” impression that the party would be boring. I told myself what would a Prom Night look like in Saint John’s. In other schools, prom nights are usually held in a hotel.
To my surprise, the hall turned into a grand ballroom, ably decorated by Mr. Robbet, our talented art teacher. Hanging in the roof were pieces of pink and white satin.
I was totally impressed, and more so when my other classmates, all made up, entered the hall like members of the royalty. Cathy, Erin, Devi looked stunning in their cocktail dresses while Papendrio Effendy and Rainer were pleasant in their coat and tie.
As I have said earlier, the prom night was actually dedicated to my seniors, the 12th graders, who are about to leave the school for further education in the university/college. My heart was filled with fun as I danced with some of them, eventually getting to know them more. It was a dance of all sorts: disco, pop, R&B, ballad. And oh, not to forget, the Waltz dance! It was totally a magical experience
The party ended at 9 p.m. and I had to admit that it was really fun! The teachers and students had a great time sweating out without hesitation. Never mind the high-heeled shoes that leave our feet aching.
I hope the school will offer other kinds of activities such as the Prom Night. Activities such as this motivate us to become more active and more sociable.
