Horsham College year 12 students have marked their final day of school with a lunchtime feast, later cooling off with water pistols and slip and slide antics.
The students were dressed up in clown masks, costumes and make-up because they said: "Year 12 is a joke".
Holy Trinity Lutheran College students marked the milestone with a final chapel service before an excursion to Warrnambool and Port Fairy to enjoy paddleboarding on the coast.
The group of 16 students were the first year 12 cohort for the school.
"The trailblazers, we call them," principal Daniel Weller said of the students.
