The Nomination Ball and Senior Dance amalgamation.
In the previous years, the Nomination Ball was for Grade 12 learners only and it was the opportunity to nominate candidates for Mr and Ms Stellenberg. This ball was the first official event for learners in term 1. The Senior Dance was a formal get-together for learners in Grades 10, 11 and 12.
As of 2016, The Stellies Formal will replace the two separate events. The Stellies Formal is a dance for learners from Grade 10 to Grade 12. It will take place in the first term of every year and will be the platform for the announcement of the finalists for Mr and Ms Stellenberg. This formal event includes a three-course meal, photographers and a DJ.
In April 2016, Stellenberg High hosted their first Stellies Formal in the activity centre. Seniors were dressed to impress. In stylish cocktail dresses and grace full gowns, suits, waist coats and bow ties, the learners came and danced the night away. In addition to hosting the Stellies Formal, there was also the surprise announcement of the finalists of Mr and Ms Stellenberg 2016.
