School Formal Night: Information

27 June 2022




Dear Students/Partners/Parents and Caregivers




It is time again for the Senior Formal.  This event has been in the past, a very successful celebration for our students and we are hoping to continue the tradition by once again making this night a fun and an enjoyable experience for all.

This year the Formal for Years 12 and 13 will be held at the Lower Hutt Events Centre in Lower Hutt on Saturday 20 August.  Students need to be at school by 6.30pm for the bus to leave on time.  The function will begin at 7.00pm and finish at 11:30 pm for the bus to return students to Naenae College by 11:45pm. Everyone will travel to and from the venue in the buses leaving from the College with no exceptions, students will also remain inside the venue until it is time to leave.

This is a special modern venue, however, as is the tradition those attending will all travel in by bus.  At the end of the Formal the buses will collect everyone and bring students back to school.  The expectation is that all students will leave the Lower Hutt Events Centre at the end of the formal and travel back to College via bus.  Families are asked to ensure arrangements are made to collect students from school.

This is a school function where our school’s Code of Behaviour applies.  There is no consumption of alcohol, drugs or smoking.  You are responsible for your own and your partner’s compliance with the Code.  Students who appear or are suspected of breaching the Code of Behaviour, will be admitted only at the Principal’s discretion.

The cost per ticket is $95.00 which includes dinner, drinks, DJ, photographer and bus travel.  Copies of the photos will be available to students following the Formal and details on how to access the photos will be released closer to the date.

Please complete the attached form, including you and your partner’s details, and return it to Miss Calcutt (Senior Assistant Principal) for approval by Friday 29th July.  Tickets may then be purchased from the Cashier at the Front Office from Monday 1st August.  All tickets must be purchased by lunchtime on Friday 5 August.  All payments or payment arrangements must be completed by this date also.  The tickets will then be distributed on Friday 19th August, the week of the Formal, at a special assembly in period 3.

This promises to be another great event in Naenae College’s 2022 calendar.  We look forward to seeing you there and enjoying this wonderful occasion.
