Charleville High School seniors end on high note

TWELVE years of toil are over for high school students in our region, as students head off to further education and jobs near and far.

Charleville High School had its graduation ceremony on Friday morning, with many a tear shed and a good send-off by teachers, parents and students.

School captain Matt Sullivan said the feeling is great but hard to describe.

"The grade 11 farewelled us well and the whole school did," Matt said.

"I think we all did well together as a cohort and next year will be even better."

Matt is heading off to the Australian Defence Force, where he will work as a combat engineer.

"I'll be 80 days at Kapooka and then six months at the school of engineering, which should be great," he said.

Fellow school captain Lauren Brennan said this year had been a blast.

"Thank you to all the staff and our mums and dads for helping us over the last 12 years," Lauren said.

"I hope you have a marvellous night at the formal and good luck for the future."

Acting principal Tony McCormack said the graduation ceremony was a great way to end five years of schooling.

"They are a really special bunch," Mr McCormack said.
