Hundreds of Bendigo students celebrated the end of 13 years of schooling this week at two major events hosted by Bendigo Senior Secondary College.

On Wednesday students, staff and families gathered at the Ulumbarra Theatre to mark the end of students’ secondary school journey. 

The evening included musical performances by students, and all year 12s received a photograph of the 2017 Year 12 cohort, as well as a commemorative gift to mark this important milestone in their life-long learning.“Graduation is the culmination of no

t just year 12 study, but all of the years of education up to this point,” principal Linda Lyons said.

 “The college is very proud of the achievements of its year 12 students, and this event is an opportunity for the college community to say well done, and best of luck for the future.” 

Yesterday, students and staff went to school in fancy dress costumes, with a fashion parade to showcase the most creative outfits. 

There was also a photo booth, DJ, games, giveaways and free bacon and egg breakfast for students. The activities were held in the Ulumbarra Plaza.

Mrs Lyons said the last day of year 12 is special for students and the broader college community.

“We’re really proud of the way our students embrace their last day celebrations in a positive and responsible way,” she said. 

“It gives everyone a chance to end the year on a high note and make it a ‘last day’ of school to remember.”
