CATHERINE McAuley College year 12 students have graduated in a COVID-safe ceremony.
There were 203 students who officially finished their high school education on Wednesday night.
Families and friends were not allowed to attend the event at the school's St Mary's campus due to coronavirus restrictions on gatherings.

But the ceremony was livestreamed so everyone could tune in to the liturgy and presentation of certificates.
Principal Brian Turner said the year 12 students should view graduating in a challenging 2020 as a "badge of honour".
"We are proud of your resilience and strength of character, together with the care and support you have shown for each other during your final year," Mr Turner told students.
"We wish you every success in the future."
It was a year of on-and-off again remote learning for the students due to COVID-19 lockdowns and changing restrictions.
The students' Victorian Certificate of Education exam period ended on Tuesday.
