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.

We're here to help you prepare your school leaver for a safe and memorable Schoolies celebration.
