The Queensland Government does not promote Schoolies. However, as part of the Safer Schoolies Initiative, it supports a range of safety initiatives at key Schoolies destinations. These initiatives are designed to enhance the safety and responsible behaviour of school-leavers, and to minimise disruption to the local communities.
Respect the local community
While you're at Schoolies, you may be away from home, but you're living in someone else's community.
Schoolies locations are residential areas. This means the same community norms apply as when you live at home. No-one appreciates loud and unruly noise or behaviour, particularly late at night.
Respect and consider the local community. Many of these people have given up their time to volunteer during Schoolies to help make the experience a safe one for you.
Tip: Have fun responsibly and consider others.
