Lynfield College Senior Ball

The social highlight of the school year for senior students and staff is our Lynfield College Ball.
 
The Ball Committee is chaired by the Head Girl and Boy and their Deputies. With a tradition of highly successful occasions having been established over many years their challenge is always to ensure that a well-organised, highly enjoyable evening is achieved. Preparations, including the choice of venue and theme, begin early in the year with the Ball being held at the end of Term 2.
 
The Lynfield College Ball has developed an excellent reputation for being well run and trouble-free.  We feel it is important for students and parents to be well aware of some aspects of our organisation, so that high standards are maintained.
 
  • Ticket purchase is conditional on the student having met all outstanding obligations to the School (eg financial, sporting, library), having no more than 5% ‘unexplained’ absences, having met the college Code of Conduct and presenting the signed and completed permission form. 
 
To be quite clear on expectations and procedures on the night..
 
  • Entry is by numbered ticket only and doors close at 7.30pm.
  • Pupils or partners/guests attempting to bring cigarettes, alcohol, herbal party pills, drugs (or equipment for their use) into the venue will have these confiscated and disposed of.  Entry may be refused.  Pupils or partners/guests showing evidence of being under the influence of alcohol or drugs will not be admitted.  Parents will be contacted.
  • The School’s jurisdiction ends with the closing of the Ball at midnight. Students are expected to leave the venue promptly.
  •  We are aware that after-ball functions may be arranged and attended by some pupils, but we neither organise nor encourage such functions.  It is the parents’/caregivers’ responsibility to ensure that they are aware of and satisfied with the plans made by their son/daughter for the conclusion of the Ball.
Adherence to these quite simple expectations ensures a wonderful night for everyone. The photos and memories stay with the students for many years.

Here is the text of the official notification to students and families regarding this year's Ball:
