Deniliquin High School was overflowing with emotion yesterday as the 2013 Year 12 students were farewelled.
On their last official day at school, the Year 12s joined teachers, younger students and their parents in reminiscing on their time at Deni High.

What started with 128 students in Year 7 was condensed down to 62 students by Year 12.
Emma said the group had formed great friendships that won’t be forgotten any time soon.

Elle Lawson and Laura Beer agreed it was an emotional experience, but both are already looking forward to hopefully attending university.
With the first HSC exam on October 14, both are planning to ‘‘study hard’’ in the coming weeks after celebrating their final day yesterday.

‘‘I think they finally realised that this is the last day they will be all together. There’ll be lots of celebrating.
‘‘Paul Ferguson, the Year level coordinator, has done a great job and took on such an important role.
‘‘The students will study very hard in the coming weeks and trial results indicate we’ll have some good results from the (main) exams, across a wide range of subjects.’’
