Stawell Secondary College year 12 students have finished their final day of school after 13 years.
The school hosted a special assembly for the students, who performed a number of dances for their peers.
The school hall was full of laughter, and some tears, as the students bid farewell in a touching tribute.
School principal Carlos Lopez spoke at the assembly and said it was an emotional day for everyone involved.
"You probably remember the first day you walked into prep and if you can't your parents would," he said.
"When being dropped off at school on that first day there would of been a lot of tears and I'm sure there will be a lot of tears today as well.
"I think all students need to be very proud of their achievements whether they are going to further education or employment."
Mr Lopez told the students the College was there to support them as they make their journey into the next stage of their lives.
"Anyway we can help find a place for you in your future our doors are always open to you," he said.
"Our relationship continues for the rest of your lives and you always have a place to come back to."
Students who will sit their year 12 exams will have a week to study, the first exam scheduled for 9am on Wednesday October 30.
