On 2nd May 2014, the most anticipated day of the WOHAA calendar arrived! Over 500 participants, teachers, parents, friends and family descended on the Royal College of Surgeons in Holborn to celebrate their WOHAA achievements in style. The theme was ‘Going for Gold’ and students were encouraged to dress up as ‘winners’, channelling their sporting, acting and academic heroes for the chance to win the coveted ‘Best Dressed’ prize. The evening began with a performance from the world famous Pineapple Dancers who got the crowd ready and raring to go with a performance full of energy and electricity.
There were also performances from Joseph Hamm of Dulwich College and Abhinav Vudathu from Queen Elizabeth’s Boys. Upcoming singer-songwriter Cally Rhodes rounded off the evening with some incredible cover songs.
Lara Lewington, BBC Presenter and reporter for technology programme ‘Click’, presided over the evening, overseeing the smooth running of presentations. We were very lucky to have an esteemed set of presenters to hand over the awards, including Bernard Sande, Malawian High Commissioner, Jackie Cooper (Global Chair of PR Company Edelman) and e Mayor of the London Borough of Sutton, Councillor Sean Brennan.
