Information for parents and guardians

Soon, your teen may be moving away from home, so Schoolies can be a special time with friends they may not get to see much of in the future. It might also be the first time your teen has been away on holidays by themselves.

As parents and guardians, whilst you may be excited for your teen, the end-of-year celebrations can often leave you feeling a little overwhelmed and concerned about the safety and wellbeing of your teen, but that's where we come in. We're here to help you prepare your school leaver for a safe and memorable Schoolies celebration.

To help your teen keep these moments in time memorable for all the right reasons, check out the everyday tips and advice.
