The students are fundraising for their graduation ball. /

"Rather than doing the usual fundraising barbecues and bake sales, our class decided to be brave and bare all, with the aim of creating a very fun and tasteful nude calendar," organiser Angela Davey told BuzzFeed.

"Our graduation ball will be our last chance to get the whole class together again, to celebrate our achievements with family and friends. After spending four years together (five years by the time we graduate), we have become an extremely close bunch of people, and while graduation will be an amazing day, it will also be sad knowing that we might not see some of our friends again."


Ten percent of profits will be donated to the Black River and Districts Rural Fire Brigade. /

"The money will go towards the development of their Townsville Region Training Facility. This training facility will help with the training of brigades from across the region, enabling the rural fire service to better serve the community," Davey said.

"If we manage to reach our target of selling 2,000 calendars, we will raise almost $40,000 – 10% of which will be donated to the Fire Brigade. Our aim is to cover as much of the cost of our ball as possible, to make it more affordable for our friends and family to attend. Any money raised in excess of what we need will also be donated to the Black River Brigade."

The first shoot took place at photographer Vicki Miller's property in north Queensland.

"We were buzzing with nerves and excitement when we arrived at the property, not quite knowing what to expect. When it came time to take the first photo, only the bravest in the class volunteered," said Davey.

What was it like getting nude together?

Davey told BuzzFeed, "Leading up to the shoot, I think most of us had this idea in our heads that we could probably wear underwear for most of the pictures, and strategically place objects or animals to make it look like we were naked. We were all thrown a little out of our comfort zones when, for the very first photo, Vicki instructed the students to take EVERYTHING off, and go and stand in the paddock with a bunch of cattle. From that point on, we just had to deal with the fact that we were totally naked with our classmates."

"Thankfully, our class if full of wonderful people, and it was a hugely positive experience. Everyone was so supportive of one another."

"I think it did a great deal for anyone with body image or self confidence issues. Each time Vicki finished a shoot, the rest of the class would cheer and clap for the 'models' in that shot. It really was a fun experience, there were smiles all round," she said.

"I think the calendar has had a very positive impact on our class, and I do believe it has brought us closer together. We signed off on the final draft of the calendar today, and printing will begin on Monday, so we are extremely excited to start posting them out to all the wonderful people who have ordered so far."
