Prep photos of 2017 year 12 students

CALLING all prep students from 2005!

It’s hard to believe how quickly time has flown. Just 13 years ago, these young faces were starting their first year of school.

Now, it’s officially the end of year 12 for many students.

If you went to primary school in the Bendigo region, there’s a chance you or someone you know features in this gallery.

We’d love to hear from year 12 students who might have featured in the Bendigo Advertiser when they first started their schooling adventure.

Let us know on Facebook, or email
