    Default girls year six farewell

    hi all, i have a 12 yr old, and am looking for been there parents for advice.
    it seems trivial but want to be a bit more "in the know"....we have the year 6 graduation and farwell coming up. how dressy to the girls go?
    i thought maybe just a nice dress from ?somewhere and hair done little more special than say her usual ponytail? or am i understating this event?
    thoughts?

    When I went, most girls had nice dresses, dressier than you'd usually find for little kids. That said, that was YEARS ago. lol.

    I'd ask the teacher about what it's been like in past years.

    My sister (a few years ago) wore a simple spaghetti strap/knee length purple dress with a couple of ruffles etc. She then wore the same dress to the formal dinner night when we went on a cruise a few weeks later. I would say similar to what you would buy her to wear to a wedding iyknwm. Age appropriate, but pretty?

    Does DD have any friends with older siblings/do you have any friends who went in the last couple of years that you can ask?

    In terms of hair, I think my sister just straightened her hair and wore it out and most of the girls had their hair out or half up half down) either natural, straightened or where mums put a few of the rollers in. Nothing fancy or tizzy.

    DD1 is in year 8. So, hers was 2 yrs ago.

    They all just had a nice dress on and sandals or shoes. Hair nice but nothing too fancy and a little bit of make-up.

    DD1 just had a nice dress we had bought from Myer for about $50 on sale and a pair of sandals from payless. Her hair was just straightened.

    From memory a couple of her friends had curled their hair but nearly everyone had their hair down or mostly down.
