Year 10 students from Hunter Valley Grammar arrived at the University of Newcastle in limousines for the traditional end of year dinner dance.

Issy Phillips, 16, was excited to finish year 10.

‘‘ [Year 11 is] going to be a lot more work, but tonight is just a celebration for exams being over,’’ she said.

This year will be the last time the School Certificate will run, and there has been suggestions that the traditional year 10 formal could also follow it out the door.

But Greg Robinson, head of senior school at Hunter Valley Grammar, expected the celebrations to stay: ‘‘We might be different to other schools but we haven’t discussed canning the idea.’’
