NO more books and no more uniforms signalled the end of school for Year 12 students across the region last Friday.

But the day was even more special for a small group at Grace Lutheran College Caboolture, with the first cohort of Year 12 students graduating from the campus.

The school first started with Year 7 and 8 students in 2008 with 34 students graduating in the 2012 Year 12 group.

Head of Caboolture Campus Allan Dallas said it was an exciting time for the school to say goodbye to the first graduating group.

"I've got my first Year 12s, my foundation students this year, but also the pioneers who finish Year 12 next year, they're the people who all walked in here on the first day of 2008," Mr Dallas said.

"It means two milestone years, first Year 12 group ever from Caboolture this year and then in 2013 will be my first full generation (Year 7-12) ever that have gone the whole distance, it's great news for the school.

"We're excited, we're sad and we're proud as well."

Students celebrated their final day with a helium balloon release in conjunction with the Rothwell campus and conducted the final chapel service with the school chaplain.
