Rochester year 12 students celebrated their last day of school on Thursday, with a special breakfast, assembly and some pranks.By Elaine Cooney
Rochester Secondary College principal Bernie Altmann said the year 12 students were witty and clever with their pranks on their last day of school on Thursday.
VCE co-ordinator Barbara McCarty invited the students to a breakfast at her home before the special school assembly.
School captains Maddy Chapman and Harley Hayes thanked Ms McCarty for her ‘‘passion and dedication’’ and inspiring students to be the best they could, as well as canteen operator Beulah Brann for greeting students with a big smile every day.
The captains reminded their fellow students of the fun times they had throughout the year and played videos of various pranks, such as a student jumping out of a fridge and scaring their peers.
Mr Altmann praised the students for working hard throughout the year and looked forward to seeing their VCE results.
