Presentation Night

Presentation Night is held at the Frankston Arts Centre in the final week of Term 4. It is an opportunity to celebrate the achievements and contributions students have made to Frankston High School during the year. Awards of academic excellence and Optima Semper are presented to students in each year level from Year 7 to 11. The Dux of each year level is announced on the night. In addition, various scholarships are presented to students; we would like to thank the sponsors of these scholarships for the excellent opportunities they provide for the students at Frankston High School.
