S6 pupils from Castle Douglas High School gathered for their final school event when they held a glamorous prom evening at Threave Gardens. Organised by a committee of pupils under the guidance of Pupil Support Teacher, Sara Linton, the Sixth year students donned their best attire to attend what proved to be a happy and enjoyable night for all. Threave Garden’s Visitor Centre was beautifully decorated by the students, sourcing everything from local businesses. There was a hog roast, ice cream and cupcakes to feed the ninety-strong group, which comprised staff and pupils; again, all of the top quality produce was locally sourced, something the committee were very keen make happen.
Mr Oswald, Depute Head Teacher proposed a toast to the Class of 2014; music was provided by Music Teacher Mr Huxtable who led the school’s ceilidh band, while local DJ Glen Cunningham, a former pupil and staunch supporter of the school’s activities, provided a disco for later in the evening.
Pupils collected their Year Books and their leaving “hoodies” and enjoyed a night of dancing and socialising.
The photos for the evening were taken by S5 pupil, Brodie Donohoe, who did a marvellous job of recording the evening's events. Brodie has left school to start a photography course at Ayr College and was pleased to have the chance to further develop her skills.
“We have really enjoyed our time in Castle Douglas High School, “said Head Girl Chloe Case. “I am sure we will remember the values we have been taught in school as we all go our separate ways. I would like to thank all the teachers for everything they have done of us over the last six years.”
