As a final hoorah, the graduating class of Flagstone State Community College took part in the school’s mystery tour.
The Mystery Tour is a school based program that aligns with the governments Safe Night Out initiative to keep students out of harm and show them there are other ways to have fun and enjoy a night out safely, free from drugs and alcohol.
After the November 17 morning graduation ceremony at school, the students kicked off the night in style where they celebrated their formal at Brookwater Golf Club.
Students were transported from the formal back to school where they changed and departed for the first mystery tour stop at midnight.
The students and teachers took to Game Over, Helensvale, for three hours of go-karting, indoor rock climbing and laser tag.
Year level coordinator Emma Pointer said the competition was fierce on the track and in the laser tag room between both students and teachers.
At 4am the group moved on to Bounce, an indoor trampoline park, at Robina.
For an hour students jumped their way around dodgeball, slam dunk challenges, stunt flips on giant airbeds and an intense game of tag led by Kula Bhullar.
Ms Pointer said the energy combined with the rising sun gave everyone the boost they needed to make it through to the next stop of Wet’n’Wild.
“We finished the morning off sliding around three of their best water activities – the Aqua Loop, Constrictor and River Rapids,” she said.
“After our hot breakfast, many students enjoyed simply lounging around the chairs, cheering on the others who were keen enough to get in the water.
“The first bus ride of the night was full of excited laughter and music and the trip home was quite the opposite with barely a student, or staff member making the trip home awake.”
The 2016 graduating class are the 11th cohort to complete schooling at Flagstone State Community College.
