School leavers’ rite of passage restored
QUEENSLAND senior students will still be able to celebrate the tradition of the Year 12 formal, after coronavirus threatened to cancel the rite of passage.
Education Minister Grace Grace today said it had been a tough few months for students - particularly for our year 12s.
"They've done a terrific job adapting to changes and playing their part in reducing the spread of COVID-19," she said on social media.
"Because of their great work, and the great work of all Queenslanders, they will be able to celebrate at the end of the year with their friends and families.
"Principals will work with their school communities to make sure events and venues meet COVID Safe Industry requirements.
"So pick out those corsages, book those limousines and get on your dancing shoes!"
