Coolum High Celebrate at Midwinter Ball

It was a chilly night but that didn’t stop students and teachers alike from dressing up in their best formal attire for the Coolum State High School Midwinter Ball. The annual formal ball is a way for the Year 12 students to come together and celebrate as adults, dress up and enjoy a three-course fine dining meal as a collective group who have made it almost to the end of their school life. The Coolum High students gathered at the grounds of the school from 5pm last Thursday, June 9 for a red carpet arrival in front of family and friends and from there they were accompanied by teachers to the Maroochydore RSL for their dinner and night of dancing. The young men and women all looked stunning and were well-mannered young people who are doing our community proud. Pictured are teacher Mr John Stewart (centre) with some of his year 12 students.

The formal event started with the students arriving at the grounds of the school and making their way along the red carpet where their family and friends were welcome to celebrate with them and pose for official photographs. From there the students were bussed down to the Maroochydore RSL for a celebratory three-course dinner and a night of dancing and lots of fun. Accompanied by teachers the group were excited to dress up in formal attire and celebrate amongst their peers.  

Deputy Principal Emma Curnow stated that the Midwinter Ball was the formal for the year and was held the night before the Nambour Show public holiday.  

 “This is a way to celebrate the milestone of making it to year 12 and an opportunity for everyone to dress up and connect as a group.  

“They are an amazing group and they have been through Covid, bushfires the floods – this group have been through it all – and tonight is a big night of fun just for them.”
