Around 140 year 11 students enjoyed the Las Vegas themed night, which featured a casino and photo booth among the attractions.

The theme continued through to the prom cake, made up of nine tiers of cupcakes each decorated with a casino chip.

James Trayton and Charlie Rayner were named prom king and queen, with Jacob Dean and Jessica Howell as prince and princess.

There were also prizes for best arrival, best hair, best dressed, and best dancer.

Academy vice principal Chanel Oswick said the night, held on July 16, was a great end to the 
year.

“The students have worked extremely hard throughout the year and it was a fantastic evening seeing them in their best attire.

“The staff during the evening praised the students and said they felt proud to have worked with students that demonstrated such camaraderie, hard work and dedication and were privileged to have been a part of their journey through the Academy.”
