Glitz and glamour: Students turn stars

YEAR 12 students from Proserpine State High School stepped onto a bus looking their finest to attend the Mocktails function at Mackay Entertainment Centre last week.

Mocktails is an annual event held at the beginning of the senior year in which one thousand students from various schools in the Mackay and Whitsunday district come together to mingle, dance and show off their amazing talents.

This year was the 25th anniversary of the Mocktails function, an event exclusive to this region.

The Year 12s loved the opportunity to see friends from other schools that they'd competed with over the years in various sporting and cultural competitions.

Many enjoyed the social evening with their peers and despite complaints of sore feet, the students of Proserpine State High School reportedly had impressive staying power on the dance floor.
