Students from the Harvey College of Agriculture suited up on Saturday night to celebrate their annual school ball at the Quality Hotel Lighthouse in Bunbury.

The masquerade theme brought out an array of ball gowns, masks and suits and added a sense of mystery to the night.

Modes of transport to the event were anything but common, with some students arriving in refurbished vintage cars and others in flashy oversized trucks.

On their arrival, all the 140 students from years 10 to 12 walked down a red carpet to enter the venue before heading upstairs into the function room.

Harvey College of Agriculture corporate services manager Teresa Hickman said the night was a great success.

“The students have been working hard and deserve to celebrate,” Ms Hickman said.

“It’s important to have an annual event like this so students can interact with each other on a more social basis but in a formal setting. With the Year 12 students on their last leg before exams, this gives them a chance to get dressed up and enjoy themselves.

“It also gives the Year 10 students an opportunity to mingle with the older year groups and make new friends.”

The Harvey College of Agriculture recently welcomed a new principal, Ms Susan Kerr.

“It’s been a great year so far, and this term has been quite busy, but we’re excited to finish it with a new principal.”
