Students are the stars at The Oscars

Students danced the night away at their end-of-term summer ball – and sashayed their way down the red carpet to a starring role in their own ‘Oscars’ ceremony.

Around 200 people attended the ball, which was held on the evening of Friday 18 July, and 12 students received mini-‘Academy Awards’ for their efforts throughout the year.

With the students in evening dress complete with ballgowns and dinner jackets, staff followed the silver screen theme - outfits included the Pink Ladies from the film Grease, Marilyn Monroe, Indiana Jones, Elvis and cheerleaders from High School Musical.

Celebrations opened with a champagne reception followed by cocktails and a barbeque supper and the whole event was sponsored by local company Aitch Care Homes (London) Ltd (known as ACH) who donated £3,000 to cover the costs of the marquee, dancefloor and chandeliers.

Staff from Tadworth-based investment company Fidelity International volunteered as waiting staff for the night so that students got the full movie-star treatment.

Karen Deacon, Director of Health and Social Care at Young Epilepsy, said:

Everyone had a fabulous night and we are really grateful to the local companies, particularly ACH for their support. It makes such a difference to our students to be able to celebrate success in this way and bring the college term to an end on such a high note.
