Bridgwater College Academy students celebrate in style at prom
Written by Bridgwater Mercury on July 18, 2021
STUDENTS at a school in Somerset celebrated in style during their prom – despite Covid-19 restrictions not lifting in time.
Year 11 pupils at Bridgwater College Academy were meant to have a traditional prom at a separate venue, but could not due to the Government guidelines.
Luckily they still managed to celebrate with a garden party at the school.
At 3pm on June 25, once all the students had left, staff transformed the outside into a garden party venue, with bunting, fairy lights and other decorations.
The students arrived at 5pm and had photos and a welcome drink. They were served canapes and desserts by staff volunteers and could order a variety of different mocktails.
The pupils left by 7pm, and went to celebrate with friends and family, while the staff turned the prom venue back into a school site – ready for Monday morning.
“The school staff pulled together amazingly to see that this event went successfully, and the students were as usual a credit to themselves, their families and the school,” said a spokesperson for Bridgwater College Academy.
“Thank you to everyone who helped make this last minute event a success!”
