Dressed in all their finery, Batemans Bay High School Year 12 graduates will be driven to their Formal tomorrow (November 9) in a variety of 30 year old Holden and Ford classic cars, plus a hot rod thrown in for good measure.
The Batemans Bay High School P & C Association has partnered with the Classic and Vintage Motor Club of Eurobodalla and Coastal Cruisers to make the Formal a night to remember for students.
“This Year 12 group has had a particularly disruptive and stressful few years, coping with Bushfires and significant COVID-19 disruptions to their last two years of schooling,” P&C President, Alexandra Malcolm told East Coast Radio.
“We want to make their formal something special to let them know how much we admire their resilience and hard work,” she said.
“We are very grateful for the owners and drivers of these precious cars for being so willing to add this extra element of excitement to the students’ special night.”
The students will meet at Corrigan’s Beach Reserve at 4.30pm on Wednesday, where they will meet the proud owners of the cars and have photographs taken.
After this, with family and friends watching on, and a drone videographer capturing the occasion from above, they will set off along Beach Road for the Batemans Bay Aquatic and Arts Pavilion, the venue for their Formal.
