TONIGHT: Full coverage of Fraser Coast school’s formal
THE second Fraser Coast school formal of the year will get underway tonight at Oaks Hervey Bay Resort and Spa.
The senior students of St James Lutheran College will celebrate the end of their studies and the approaching next chapter at a fun-filled, but socially distanced, event.

The Chronicle was there to photograph every arrival and will be there again tonight to cover the St James Lutheran College celebration.
