Class of 2015 bids farewell on a night of glitz and glamour


It was all fun and laughter when the Grade 12s of Castle Bridge School in Bloemfontein celebrated their long anticipated matric dance on 4 September 2015. After years of hard work, the dance came as a special delight and was indeed well deserved.
The occasion was vibrant and full of colour. The exquisite couture of the outfits and theme for the evening were absolutely stunning! This was all set against the backdrop of an equally stunning venue, Ashwood Guesthouse & Spa, located in beautiful surroundings in Mangaung.
Lending support and encouragement to the occasion were the school hierarchy and an array of distinguished invited guests who spoke glowingly of Castle Bridge School. A recent change in ownership and management has given the school a new lease of life. This investment in education has seen the school transition in leaps and bounds with a special commitment to mould tomorrow's leaders. It was therefore apparent that the matric dance meant so much more than just being a farewell party. It was also a celebration of new beginnings and new possibilities. With the patronage and a new management and academic team in place, Castle Bridge School is providing a safe environment for quality learning and excellent academic achievement. 
The principal's speech captured the excitement and optimism of the new direction. Invited guests, drawn from diverse educational backgrounds, had only good words of encouragement for the students as they proceed to the next level of learning in 2016.
The students were ecstatic as the night was further glamorised by an assortment of thrilling entertainment. Besides the good food and music, the occasion was graced by Mlungisi, a talented poet, John, an amazing singer and a performing group as talented as Black Mambazo called Botshabelo Sunrise. They were simply awesome!
The Castle Bridge matric dance was also an evening of recognition and praise as the school handed out awards to the students for outstanding achievement and academic brilliance. The jubilation in the room was felt by all and thanks to sponsors like E'tsho Civils and Ashwood Guesthouse & Spa, the event was a resounding success.
