The Year 11 Hills Grammar Presentation Ball was a wonderful evening of dining, dancing and a little pomp and ceremony. Held at Oatlands House (the venue of the very first Presentation Ball in 1985) parents, staff and the Year 11 students were treated to a formal evening officiated by past student Jacinta Hocking (Class of 1994). Jacinta, former TV Journalist, Newsreader and Chief of Staff at Ten News is now a high profile auctioneer with Cooley’s Auctions. It was also a pleasure for the School to welcome back Rebel Talbert (Class of 1995) as the Guest of Honour and after dinner speaker. Assistant Commissioner Rebel Talbert is the Director Regional Services for the NSW Fire Service and a local Hills resident. Her message of persistence, pushing one’s limits and self-belief was truly an inspiration to the young women and men present.
