Cultural Awards Evening

The cultural awards evening is a much-anticipated event for everyone involved. Friday 5 October proved to be a spectacular evening, with activities ranging from dance to robotics. The cocktail party was comprised of a myriad of the cultural offerings. Sipping on virgin cocktails and nibbling on delicious snacks, the girls and their parents could dabble in gaming, 3D-printed ten-pin bowling, a photo booth or marvel at the designs from Project Runway 2018.  A few of the performances prior to the awards evening included the modern dance group, traditional choir and original poetry from the girls. As the glamorously-attired audience moved into The Edge, the newly-recorded original song, Boy in my Mirror, written by The Indecisives, set the mood for the ceremony. Veneka Paradza touched the audience with her nostalgic memories on leaving The Edge, her home at school. The jazz band and their vocalists dazzled the audience with their two toe-tapping numbers. The audience collectively celebrated the various awards with roaring applause for the nominees and winners. Dramatic monologues, duologues, poetry and staged readings punctuated the evening. A highlight was certainly the dance crew’s two inter-high dances.

The night ended with The Indecisives performing Best Friend by Rex Orange County. It was a night of celebration, talent and pure delight.
