Holiday a perfect gift for Samara
SAMARA Rogan celebrated her 18th birthday yesterday, and was beaming with glee when asked if she received any noteworthy gifts.
“Mum gave me a trip to Thailand. It’s so awesome,” she said.
Lachlan Brookes was busy signing balloons for Sam when The Daily Examiner caught up with the two best mates.
Both attend South Grafton High School and are in Year 12.
Along with most other students their age, the pair said the HSC seemed daunting, but they were looking forward to finishing school.
Sam’s plans for yesterday were to finish school for the day and then go to dinner with family and friends at the Village Green Hotel.
Lachlan said the best thing about the Clarence Valley was the mates he had here.
“It’s pretty chilled out really, not much happens, which has its advantages,” he said.
The teenager added he loved Seelands and tried to make the most of the Clarence River on hot days.
