Their turn on the catwalk

Kwalikum Secondary School students raise money for 2012 dry grad events

Class of 2012 model Paige Miller tosses her hair during one of her strolls along the catwalk Tuesday night.

Students led the way on the catwalk at the Kwalikum Secondary School grad fashion show Tuesday night.

The event is a fundraiser for the 2012 dry grad event, and this year’s show featured chocolates galore, a silent auction, draw prizes — and Qualicum Beach students strutting their stuff on stage.

Local fashions from a variety of businesses were featured, including some bikinis designed by a KSS grad (more on this on an upcoming edition of The News).

The Qualicum Beach Civic Centre was nearly full and the crowd appreciative of the students’ and parents’ efforts on stage and behind the scenes
