THIRTEEN years of packed lunches, homework, swimming carnivals and missing the school bus came to an end for the Year 12 class of Our Lady of the Southern Cross College on Friday.

The students, along with family, friends and college staff, gathered at the St Joseph's Catholic Parish on Friday to celebrate the journey each student has taken in their school education.

OLSCC principal John Hegarty addressed the congregation and said the departure of the 2017 Year 12s would leave an enormous hole in the school community.

Mr Hegarty also said every graduate had etched their names into the 140-year history of catholic education in Dalby.

Outgoing school captains Kurtis Sankey and Kaitlyn Hobson were next to speak, and wished their colleagues well in their next chapter in life.

After a final blessing, a guard of honour was assembled to officially farewell the Year 12 students of 2017.
