With Matric dance season in full swing, students are looking for any way to stand out from the crowd – and the flashier and quirkier, the better!

Recently, one KwaZulu-Natal learner managed to do just that – and even saved on fuel too!


Shae Geary – a learner from KZN – stunned her fellow friends when she arrived at her Matric dance – in a trolley!

Decked with tinsel, balloons, and fairy lights,  the grade 12 learner stole the spotlight in her unconventional ride. 

In a clip circulating on social media, Geary sat in the trolley whilst her partner happily pushed her to the entrance of the venue: Coastlands Umhlanga.
