The 2018 Community Ball, presented by Sacred Heart College was held at the Kyneton Mechanics Institute on Saturday 13 October.
This event raised funds for the local CFA (Mt Macedon Group including: Woodend, Gisborne, Hesket, Newham, Riddells Creek and Bullengarook) as well as Kyneton Community Kitchen held at the College, with $2000 being raised to be divided between these two organisations.
Over 120 people attended the ball and enjoyed the music of the Sacred Heart College Big Band which played Swing, Rock and Latin music throughout the night under the leadership of conductor Sarah Gill. Adding to the band’s numbers were teachers, parents and past students making it a true community event. At many times the dance floor was full as all enjoyed the big band music.
This was the final performance as part of the College Big Band for a number of the Year 12 band members, which only added to the atmosphere of the night with parents and family members there to support them. After the success of the inaugural event held last year, a number of band members from SHC’s Class of 2017 returned to perform with the band and were joined by parents and teachers for a number of sets later in the night.
