The 2022 NIHS Enchanted Forest Formal was celebrated on Friday 18 November at the Adelaide Convention Centre.
For the final time, 196 Year 12 students gathered together as a united cohort, without the stress of their exams and final assessments weighing them down, and celebrated their final year at NIHS. Our student emcees Fynn and Ruby opened the evening with a nostalgic speech encouraging their peers to reflect on the obstacles they have overcome, the victories they have celebrated and the long-lasting memories they have made throughout their education. The evening was thrilling and filled with enthusiasm, an obsession with photo booth photos, dancing and student nominated awards that stirred a strong feeling of community amongst the Year 12 cohort and supporting staff.
From chair sash colours, invitation design and floral arrangements to food choices and awards, our formal committee worked tirelessly in small teams and met weekly throughout Term 3 to meticulously plan the event. I would like to acknowledge and thank their contributions towards the smooth execution of the evening.
All in all, the evening was a wonderful way to send our Year 12s off into the world and we wish them the best for the next chapter of their lives.
