The South Burnett’s formal season kicked off in style on Friday night with Nanango State High School students rolling up to the school auditorium for their special night.
Like just about everything else this year, the Year 12 formal was a different-style event due to the pandemic.
There were no crowds lining the red carpet and there would be no dancing … still banned under COVID-19 restrictions.
But a handful of family members turned up to take photos. They stood around in small groups – socially distanced – and clapped as each of the students arrived.
At one stage earlier this year, everyone wondered if the traditional school formals would still be able to go ahead – after all, schoolies had officially been cancelled.
But with COVID Safe plans in place, all the South Burnett high schools now have dates pencilled in.
The Nanango students, decked out in ballgowns and suits, had big smiles as they walked up the red carpet into the hall.
They arrived in a myriad of vehicles, ranging from farm utes to 60s muscle cars, a Kombi van, moped and even a high-tech Tesla.
