PIC GALLERY: The glitz from the Dalby Christian College formal

THE pressures of coronavirus were nowhere in sight when the 2020 graduating class from Dalby Christian College entered their formal.

Dalby Christian College's (DCC) Year 12 cohort descended on the Dalby Baptist Church on September 18, dressed head-to-toe in finest threads in the Western Downs.

DDC events co-ordinator Shelley Wieden said the school and the arrivals were both "so excited and very relieved" to be able to celebrate their formal this year in the midst of a pandemic.

"While COVID regulations impacted our numbers and the ability for people to attend arrivals, our private, invitation only event was attended by 95 guests including our class of 2020," she said.

"There was no denying the excitement as we celebrated this amazing group of young men and woman."

Each student arrived in luxurious cars, with their form teachers performing the final roll call for their senior year.

Barry Seebaran gave the traditional teacher speech to thunderous applause, while Colleen Peters and Michelle Nolan gave parents speeches, and Sophie Lapthorne and Michael Baird spoke on behalf of the students.

Mrs Wieden said the school would like to thank the Dalby Baptist Church, and the Wedding Shed on Charles for setting up the formal.
