Sophie looks ahead to her school formal
TODAY is set to be a bitter-sweet day for Sophie Sutton as she says goodbye to her school years, and hello to adulthood.
The Emmaus College senior said she was happy to finish school but sad to walk away from a big part of her life.
She said she was looking forward to celebrating with all of her friends at tomorrow night's formal.
"I'm excited and it'll be fun to see everyone dressed up at formal," Sophie said.
"I am sad to leave but excited at the same time."
With nerves starting to kick in Sophie said she was hoping the day would go smoothly.
"I'm getting my hair and make-up done by Laken Beauty and I am keeping it simple," she said.
"I tried to stick within a reasonable budget when it came to my dress and shoes.
"You don't usually have the chance to dress up in Rocky so it's exciting."
Sophie said she will be sharing the day with her formal partner, Tylor Eyles, who had planned well ahead.
"Taylor got in pretty early, he asked me to formal in Year 9," she laughed.
"It's nice to have a good friend to partner me at formal."
Sophie, who will be arriving to formal in a sports car, said she was excited for the event and was looking forward to sharing the day with her family.
