MidWinter Disco Fever!

07 June 2023

The MidWinter Party was a wonderful night of socialising, dancing, delicious food and disco fever that both sparkled and rocked the night along! Thank you to all parents, friends and staff who came out to enjoy this community evening together!

Organised by Yr 7 parents, the venue 'The Fernery' proved to be a stunning place to see friends and catch up, as well as enjoy dancing, disco-themed games and wonderful entertainment. Teachers Lucy Armstrong, Jonathan Shaw and parents Sam Gibson and Emma Spencer sang some favourites for us, and the air guitar and dance-off competitions hailed some unexpected winners! DJs Shaun and Scott helped us dance the night away with disco fever.

Thanks to James Henty for being our funky MC and to so many people for dressing up to move and groove in true disco style! A huge thank you goes to the Yr 9 families who organised the concurrent Silent Auction with over 60 amazing donations from our community - it raised over $13,500! This goes directly to the Glenaeon Parents Association (GPA) and will be used towards projects and equipment for the students. The food and desserts were delicious and plentiful, and it was such a delight to see so many parents from all years together again.
A heartfelt thank you to the dedicated organising committees from both Yr 7 and 9 and our Silent Auction donors (see below).
