November 15. Day 319. School's out forever

Twelve years is a very long time. And that last year of school is an absolute killer. Even so the final day of Year 12 is a bitter sweet moment. Of course there is both great relief and excitement at the end of high school.
But the excitement is tempered with sadness at the end of an era and the knowledge that life will never be the same again. And there's the saying goodbye to friends who have walked beside you on the school journey.It's not that they are going anywhere but they will no longer be beside you in the classroom five days a week (they will, however, just be a Facebook click away).
With all that going on it's no wonder school leavers need to let off a bit of steam.
So it was this afternoon for my niece Scarlett and  her fellow school leaving boyfriend Alex.
If you can't jump in the pool fully clothed on your last day of school when can you?
