Year 11 and 12 students celebrate in style at the 2024 St James’ Ball

On a beautifully warm summer evening at Mindarie Pavilion, the Year 11 and 12 students came together for a night full of laughter, dancing and life-long memories.

At noon on the day of the ball, the ball committee headed down to the Pavillion to set up, ensuring that everything was ready for a night of celebration.

The 2024 St James’ School Ball began at 6.30 when students arrived dressed in their finest. All of the Year 11 and 12 students looked absolutely amazing, and the roaming photographer snapped some wonderful pictures as we made our way into the venue.

Ryder Kereopa and I were lucky enough to be nominated for best dressed, but each student pulled out all the stops with their outfits.

The dinner served was delicious, and we were so happy to have the entire venue opened up, so we had an even bigger dance floor than the year before.

Ella Cowling and Liam Reid bust out some amazing moves, earning the awards for Best Dancers, while Ruby Aitken and Rohan Toomer took home the prizes for Social Butterflies of the evening.

The night was filled with memories that will stick with us forever as we began our final year of schooling. Thank you to all the staff and the venue team that made the evening possible. We’re excited to see what the Year 11 Ball Committee comes up with for 2025!
