This year's Year 12 cohort went all out, spending big on dresses and suits to make the perfect memory.

But it was the transport that really separated the good from the spectacular.

There were prime movers, antique cars, several surplus army jeeps and even an RFDS truck.

School principal Marcus Jones said the night was both a happy and sad occasion.

"Tonight is a special night," Mr Jones said.

"It is the culmination of 12 years of schooling and the beginning of a very special time for our Year 12s as they look forwards to the next stage of their lives after high school.

"As Danny Kay said 'life is a great big blank canvas and you should throw all the paint at it you can'."

But it was the personal memories that really made the last important event for this group of Year 12s truly special.

Sam Irvine said he has had a good final year.

"Hopefully I'm off next year to do architecture in Melbourne," he said.

"I just think it would be neat to design houses."

Caitlin Walker is joining the army.

"I'm probably going to be off in March," she said.

"I'll be an air dispatcher - the people who drop cargo out of those big planes."
