SBHS Formal 2016

Tony Ambrose —

The SBHS Formal is on Saturday 11 June at the Air Force Museum, Harvard Avenue, Wigram. It is regarded as the social highlight of the school year for senior students.

The function runs from 8:00pm until midnight.

Doors will open at 7:30pm and no students will be admitted after 8:15pm.

The Formal is only open to current Year 12 and 13 students. The criteria for eligibility has been well publicised all year and should be well known.

To be eligible to attend, Year 12 and 13 students are reminded that they must meet the following requirements:

  • Have a financial debt with the school of less than $200 (excluding overseas school trips);
  • To have not caused concern over absences, conduct and/or work ethic both inside and outside the classroom.

The final decision as to whether a student is eligible to attend the formal will be left to the relevant Head of House

The cost of the tickets has now been finalised - they are $170 per double and $125 per single.

To purchase a ticket, students need to collect the relevant documentation from the Student Office. There is a tear off section on the second page that needs to be completed and submitted to the Student Office. There is no credit available, nor will automatic payments be accepted after 3 June. All tickets must be fully paid for by 3 June.

For Parents:

In response to some parental requests, we are trialling a new initiative this year. Parents are welcome to get to the venue at 7:30pm if they wish to come in and see the students in their finery. There will be an area set aside for parents in the foyer and free tea and coffee will be available.

However, we ask that parents who attend remain in the designated foyer area and they need to leave once all the students have arrived by 8:15pm.

This is a chance to see your sons and their partners at their best. No RSVP is required and there is no need for parents to dress formally.
