Our Virtual Prom

23 Oct 2020   |   By Charlotte Walker   |   Greenacre School

Although the pandemic led to the cancellation of many events, staff and students at Greenacre School were determined
to ensure that the Annual Leavers’ Prom would still go ahead – albeit a little different to usual!

On 15th July, staff, parents and students from over 45 locations tuned in via Google Meet for the virtual prom. This was the first time in months that many of us had seen so many faces and everyone made such a fantastic effort, even dressing up for the occasion!

A beautiful presentation showcased each of our Year 11 and Year 14 leavers, with photographs that captured their journey through school. Each pupil was invited to unmute their microphone and have their voice heard; there was not a dry eye in the virtual room! The event ended on a high with a disco featuring the students’ favourite songs.

Our Prom means so much to students and staff alike. It marks the end of an era and many of our young people are reassured by this opportunity to celebrate and have this opportunity to say ‘goodbye’. 2020 may have been a turbulent year, but it has brought some exceptional opportunities and remarkable successes, reminding us that even in the darkest of times, there are opportunities for people to shine.
