Year 12 College Ball 

The Corpus Christi College Ball will be held on Friday 1 February 2019, from 7.00pm to 11.00pm at the Hyatt Regency Perth.

We have chosen a date early in the year so as to minimise disruption to the students’ studies.

The cost of the evening is $128 per person.  Payment for the evening is required by no later than Friday 7 December 2018.  To obtain tickets to the College Ball, please make payment using the TryBooking link. 

The cost of the ticket includes access to all digital photos taken on the evening.

Students are reminded that the College Ball is a formal evening and appropriate dress standards for College functions apply.  The College reserves the right to refuse entry to those who do not adhere to this.  If you have any concerns regarding this issue, please contact the Vice Principal, Mrs Karen Prendergast or myself.

If your child is bringing an external guest to the evening, they must hand in an ‘External Guest Application’ form to Ms Larsen. 

The College Ball is a school event therefore students and external guests must adhere to the College rules regarding appropriate behaviour.  Anyone who arrives to the ball under the influence of alcohol or other substances will be asked to leave – parents will be contacted and asked to collect their child.  Any student who is to be accompanied by someone other than a current Year 12 student from Corpus Christi College is responsible for ensuring that their guest is aware of and accepts these conditions.  

Nobody, including external guests, will be permitted to leave the ball until the end of the evening.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this important event, please do not hesitate to contact me at the College.

Regards

Naomi Larsen

Head of Year 12
