Saturday, July 8 marked the annual Mooltripakdee International School Prom. Students from Middle School were invited to celebrate the end of term and Year 9 students celebrated graduating from Middle School into Year 10, secondary education.
The elaborate evening consisted of a catered dinner, music performances, a fashion show, student speeches, and ultimately the crowning of King and Queen of the prom. The attending students also took part in karaoke and dancing. A fun-filled night of fun was had by all.
Middle School Math teacher Miss Morgan, who attended the evening of celebrations, said, ”It was a great turn out, the students looked fantastic! It was a great to see the students enjoying themselves, dancing and singing. The prom was a huge success.”
Victoria, from Year 9, has been attending M.I.S since she was two years old. She also acknowledged how successful the evening was. She commented that over the years she has seen so many positive changes and growth occurring at M.I.S and the prom really encapsulated the positive developments at school. She added, “It was a great prom, everyone was very happy. The Key Stage three building, where Prom took place, was beautifully decorated and it really was a team effort. A lot of effort went onto the Prom and it was just great. The thing I love about M.I.S is that the staff and students are so friendly”.
