In the evening after our Senior School Prize Giving, students, parents and teachers gathered for an evening to remember: the Summer 2023 Peacock Ball. The students were at their gracious, exuberant best, and there was magic in the tent (quite literally, in some cases).
The Ball, organised by Mrs Priestley-Smith and her outstanding team of helpers, was on the theme of Hollywood glamour. There were cocktails, a human Oscar statue, a magician, two live bands, and fireworks; the food was delicious, and the wine flowed. The undoubted highlight of the evening, however, was a late-night DJ set from Andy Cato – half of Groove Armada, and father of Nina (Upper Sixth, Harcourt). His set was sublime and the guests went wild. How lucky we were!
We are indebted to the Catering Team for the delicious food, the Maintenance Department for the stunning backdrop, the Communications Office for logistical support, and, of course, to Events Officer, Miss Beck; but, above all, a huge and heartfelt vote of thanks to Chair of the CPFA, Mrs Priestley-Smith and the rest of the CPFA team for treating us to such a joyous and memorable occasion.
