PHOTOS: Fairholme seniors celebrate year at formal dinner

FAIRHOLME College seniors and their partners celebrated 2020 in style at a formal dinner held at Picnic Point on Wednesday night.

Students enjoyed a chance to let down their hair after a year punctuated by cancellations, postponements and the modification of events, many of which they had looked forward to for years.

A small group of parents were there to greet the students as they alighted from their cars.

The arrival was captured on a live stream so other family, friends and students could share in the memory while sticking to COVID-19 restrictions.

While dancing was not on the menu, students enjoyed a scrumptious three course meal and the opportunity to spend a night in each others' company.

The occasion also gave seniors the chance to frock up elegantly, as they nudge one step closer to life beyond the school gates.

They arrived at Picnic Point in an array of styles, from the elegant and understated to the vibrant and chic, posing alongside their partners.

Fairholme College staff said they were pleased the students had the chance to experience their senior formal.
