Teens sit last ?make-up exam



SEVENTY-FOUR over-excited teenagers are gearing up for the Chanel College graduation evening, but not everyone is looking forward to the hours of preparation it takes to get ready for the big event.

Year 12 student Carli Hobbs said she wasn't looking forward to dressing up for the night.

"I'm really not looking forward to four hours of hair and makeup and then hundreds of photos, but I guess it's just one of those things you have to do,'' Carli said.

She said most students were excited about the after-party and schoolies celebrations next week , but the prom was a good chance for parents to enjoy their child's graduation.

"It's good that we can experience it in a formal manner with our parents. They're the ones who've been through it all with us, so they deserve to be there as a part of it,'' Carli said.

Sarah Fowler said most students had been gearing up for the big event for a while, with girls planning their dresses for months.

But, according to Tim Smith, the boys were less concerned with what they'd be wearing and more intent on enjoying themselves.
