The annual matric farewell is the highlight of the Hermies matrics’ final school year – and this year was no exception. The dazzling celebration was held on Friday 21 September at the B’stro Restaurant at La Vierge in Hemel-en-Aarde.
But first, the elegantly dressed grade 12s used various modes of transport for their grand arrival on the red carpet at the school in the late afternoon, ranging from vintage cars to horse-drawn carriages. As is tradition, they were greeted with cheers from their parents, friends, family members and teachers, before having their official photo taken. They then travelled by bus to La Vierge, which had been stylishly decorated for this important occasion.
A large portion of the floor space was left open for a dance floor, and in between enjoying the delicious food and cold drinks, the matrics were able to boogie the night away. Francois Swart from Mock Turtle was the dee-jay for the evening and the learners had a blast, creating memories that will not soon be forgotten.
