A red carpet awaited 12th grade students at St Mary’s Catholic College when they attended their glittering ceremony in Kingaroy last week.
Thoughts on upcoming exams – and future career plans – have been put aside for an auspicious night at Kingaroy Town Hall.
The students dressed up for the occasion, with great dresses, beautiful costumes and even a few cowboy hats on display.
They arrived in the usual batch of unusual means of transport, although there were no semi-trailers or carriages this year!
The vehicles included old sedans, hot Fords (including a 1976 Mercury); and some of General Motors’ best (including a menacing black Camaro).
The dinner was also an opportunity for the students to bid farewell to the local Catholic priest, Father Chukwudi Chinaka, who will be leaving Kingaroy at the end of the year.
