ALWAYS a highlight on the annual calendar, Hillcrest High’s glamorous matric dance for 2017 took place last Saturday evening. Their 190 matric pupils and their partners arrived in show-stopping style in luxury vehicles, limousines, motorbikes and vehicles decked out in unique décor for the night, including a jeep covered in jungle foliage and a shopping trolley, plumed with roses.
Even the shyest of boys puffed out their chests and held their heads especially high, as they made their way down the red carpet, to each shake their tireless headmaster Mr Girvin’s hand, with their ladies by their sides, looking uniquely exquisite.

Mr Girvin said he was happy to see even some individual arrivals making such a confident entrance on their own, as it gave him a sense of pride that the school had empowered pupils in this way.

Hillcrest High’s school hall was transformed into a “Bohemian Rhapsody” theme and dancing opened with the student executive committee, of heads and deputy heads of culture and sport. It was quite a change from the classrooms and sports fields.

The Grade 11s and teachers in charge of organising the event outdid themselves with all their hard work in putting the event together, as well as the parents who helped and to whom Hillcrest High is always grateful for their hard work.
The night encapsulated Hillcrest High’s “H-H-S” maxim of Honour, Hard Work and Service and was spectacular. Now it is back to the books for the matrics, so they can concentrate on doing well in their final studies. The school wishes them the very best and encourages them with the 2017 school theme: “If it is to be, it is up to me.” See more photos on page 10.
