ORANGE High School year 12 students vow there will be no muck-up day.
The Central Western Daily has reported in previous years students from across the region have toilet rolled trees, stolen real estate signs from houses and illegally plastered schools with banners before the last day of school.
Orange Police Inspector Bruce Grassick had a warning for any students who engaged in criminal activities.
“Action will be taken against anyone who commits an unlawful action,” he said.
Orange High School captain Lachlan Harris said students would not participate in activities that damaged the reputation of their school.
“There was some talk of it earlier on but we’ve settled that all down,” he said.
“I think everyone realised the consequences of it all and we’ve got a pretty good year this year.”
Orange High School principal Maree Angus said the school had taken measures to prevent any unwanted behaviour.
Thursday is the last day of school for year 12 students and Orange High School will take their students on a mystery tour.
“It’s about celebrating in a constructive way,” she said.
“It’s about safety and having a good time without alcohol.”
The students will arrive at school at 6.30am for breakfast before embarking on a bus tour at 7.30am.
Students are not due back until 5pm.
Mrs Angus said Orange high schools had coordinated efforts to keep students separated during celebrations.
Canobolas Rural Technology High School principal Chris Condliffe said his students were aware Orange High School students would not be at school on the last day.
He does not expect his students to engage in muck-up day activities.
“Our students thankfully have a lot of common sense,” he said.
Mr Condliffe said students would have a farewell disco tonight. Orange High School had their disco last night.
Mr Condliffe said year 12 students would spend their last day of school raising money for cancer research.
Students will bombard teachers at the gate for a donation. They will also attend a farewell assembly.
James Sheahan Catholic High School principal Mark Pauschmann says he has not seen any unwanted behaviour from students in the two years he has been at the school.
He said Sheahan students would participate in mass practice, graduation practice and were allowed to cross-dress for two periods at school.
High schools in Orange will employ security over the next few nights.
Students who engage in unwanted behaviour will be banned from attending their graduations.
