On Thursday 20 September, Erinville Hostel hosted their annual Fancy Dress dinner for the Matrics, organised by the hostel’s Grade 11s.
All guests entered the newly bedecked Thomson Hall along the red carpet and discovered the secret theme for the evening: Old Hollywood. The hall was exquisitely decorated in red and black velvet with fairy lights and framed photos of Hollywood stars adorning the walls.
Table decor was stunningly detailed and the ambience was enhanced by the jazz band. After all the guests arrived, the Head of Hostel gave a touching speech, after which starters were served. In between meals, girls took photos in their finery surrounded by elements of the roaring twenties.
Simply Blues, the Bishops acapella group, provided the entertainment. More photos were taken and prizes awarded for those who guesses of the secret theme was closest, even though the clues were aimed to misdirect.
After the scrumptious dessert, Alexandra Müller sang Spectacular and the guests joined in for the chorus. A big congratulations goes to the Erinville Grade 11s for their dedication and hard work in organising such a wonderful and successful evening.
