STUDENTS at Neale-Wade Community College, in March, walked down the red carpet and past the world-famous Hollywood sign to the flashes of paparazzi cameras as if it was Oscars night.

It was all put on for the Year 11 prom, held on Saturday evening. About 200 students and 40 staff attended, with entertainment provided through a disco.

The prom was organised by a committee made up of Year 11 students, who held a number of fundraising events to pay for the night.
