IT WAS the end of an era for year 12 stu­dents at Rochester Sec­ondary Col­lege last week.

The 54 stu­dents cel­e­brated the end of their school­ing life with an assem­bly in front of fam­ily and friends on Tues­day.

‘‘It’s a bit sad that it’s all over I guess,’’ he said.

‘‘Ev­ery­one says they can’t wait to fin­ish school but now that it’s ac­tu­ally fin­ished, it’s a bit scary.’’

Fel­low school Chap­man agreed.

‘‘I’m not too wor­ried. I’ve just got to get stuck into my study,’’ he said.

Prin­ci­pal Bernie Alt­mann con­grat­u­lated this year’s crop of stu­dents for mak­ing it to the fin­ish line.

‘‘This rep­re­sents a won­der­ful mile­stone in their lives and is cause for cel­e­bra­tion,’’ he said.
