GALLERY: St James students celebrate at formal
FOR the students of St James Lutheran College, their formal was the chance to celebrate a year like no other.
COVID-19 has impacted on the lives of students across Queensland, including right here on the Fraser Coast.
But on Thursday night, it was a chance to come together and just have fun as the Year 12 students came together to celebrate as the end of their school lives approaches.
Dressed to the nines, the students posed for photos before heading into their specially decorated room at the Oaks Hervey Bay Resort in Urangan.
The school is the second to host its formal on the Fraser Coast so far this year.
Next up is Fraser Coast Anglican College, which will hold its formal at the Hervey Bay Boat Club on Friday night.
Formals that had to be delayed are set to go ahead in coming months, giving students a well earned celebration after a difficult year as a result of the pandemic.
