Prefect Social!

As I walked into the hall, the sight that greeted me was amazing. The hall was smothered in black and white decorations varying from balloons to streamers. My shoes made a small clunk noise on the cold wooden floor as I walked to the stage. I was wearing a long black flowy dress with roman sandals topped off with a small checkered cardigan. “Have you done the playlist yet?” Samson asked. Then it hit me: I hadn’t even started it!

At that particular moment, my heart skipped a beat. I glanced at the clock and saw that there were only a few minutes to prepare. I know you might be thinking I’m pretty slack, but I had a lot on my mind..... and when I say a lot, I mean A LOT! I quickly, but carefully placed my netbook on the desk that was sitting in front of me. Turning it on, I scanned my music folder to see if I could just chuck a playlist together. This was pretty hard seeing that I only had a limit of songs to choose from. “Tick, tock, tick tock” was the sound of the clock AND it was also the sound indicating that time running out. As the stress piled up on my shoulders, I put the last song on the playlist. “YES!” I squealed. I rejoiced because I had finished the playlist just in time, as the first guests arrived.

Quarter way into the social, the hall was packed with people who were dancing, socializing or just chilling on the chairs. The different coloured lights were flickering all around the hall. And of course there was music, because what kind of social would this be if the music wasn’t loud enough to blow your eardrums right? Anyway, the lights were turned on to get ready for the first competition: The Dougie Battle. As I played the song, lot’s of courageous people entered the circle in hope of impressing the judges which were Mr Barks, Sylvia and Joe. In the end there was a battle between a boy and a girl: Mary and Nezinli. There were cheers from the crowd encouraging our two finalists but in the end Nezinli came out on top and won the competition. After, we just continued with the disco.

As I was doing my job (Dj) I looked out into the energetic crowd but a small group of boys caught my eye. They were standing right in the middle cheering and requesting a song called ‘Gangnam Style’ by a Korean rapper called Psy. I was thinking for a while but then thought ‘Ehh, what do I have to lose?’  So as soon as the song played they were dancing ridiculously. They were also KOREAN? Anyway, My friends and I were on the stage laughing hysterically at the boys. Well, I would rather clean up the whole hall than dance like that in front of everyone. That would be better right?

WRONG! As the social came to a close and everyone exited the premises, they left us a present: rubbish, rubbish and some more RUBBISH! I reluctantly grabbed a broom and started sweeping, with the help of Seini-Mino. Well I would have to admit that the social was a big success and it would be fun to do it again!


  1. Hey Selena,
    You and the rest of the prefects served us a whole lot of fun. Hopefully our prefects next year can do as better as you did. I enjoyed my time in the social. Sorry for the mess though! Anyway, I can't wait to read more interesting post. Keep up the great work!!!


  2. Hi Selena,
    I'm glad you enjoyed yourself! You described the social exactly how it went, your use of words is just right.I like how you describe the scene as you first walk in to the hall.
    Great work! I'll be looking forward to your next piece of fantastic writing.
