The Year 12 Formal got off to a shaky start when it had to be postponed due to the recent devastating bushfires.
However a new date (December 2) and a bit of reshuffling saw the students turn out in splendid style at the Nambucca Heads Ex-Services Club to celebrate the culmination of 13 years of schooling.
Simply stunning outfits had school girls and boys transform into elegant young ladies and men. Parents, grandparents, staff and friends joined in with this very close knit Year 12 group in a night filled with laughter, friendship, festivity and happy/sad tears.
Year Advisor, Joel Mason praised the students for the way they always looked out for each other and assured them he had total confidence in the young adults they've become.
Shelayna Boorer, on behalf of her classmates, spoke from the heart of the gratitude they had for the persistence, care support and love their parents had given them.
Parent, Teresa Boorer, thanked the exceptionable staff at Bowraville Central School noting that their dedication to their students was evident in the student's outstanding achievements.
Principal, Dave Taylor asked the students to celebrate not what had been but what is to come and assisted by tutor, Sue Luong-Van, Dave presented students with numerous academic awards.
All members of the class have plans in place for their future including early acceptances into University, employment offers and the armed forces.
Dux of the school was awarded to Jack Sullivan. Jack also received a scholarship to Newcastle University as well as success in gaining a position with TAFE in a Technical Support role.
