Josh keen to step out in style for formal fling

JOSH Robinson has his shoes shined and his suit altered. He is ready to hit the red carpet.

The 17-year-old St Stephen's Lutheran College student will join hundreds of other Year 12s graduating high school and letting their hair down this week.

His formal evening is on Friday at Yaralla Sports Club.

"It gives me a chance to dress up, otherwise I wouldn't," he said.

"I bought my shoes from Williams with Dad. They were my first choice."

Josh will wear a black suit with a light-blue striped shirt, vest and tie. He will arrive in a 2014 Range Rover, flying solo.

Josh is excited for what lies ahead but sad about leaving his tight-knit group of friends.

"I am nervous about going into the working world but I want to be a graphic designer."

Josh's goal is to study at Qantm College in Brisbane.

"My passion is the concept behind making logos for companies," he said.

Josh is hoping for an OP6, with an OP12 what he needs to earn a place in the three-year course.

The St Stephen's formal arrivals start from 6pm.

The Gladstone State High School formal was held last night.

Tonight the Tannum Sands State High School and Chanel College formals will be held.
