What to expect

You’ve been looking forward to Schoolies all year and now it is finally here. Sometimes though, when we’ve been looking forward to something for a long time, our expectations can be too high and we may end up disappointed.

Schoolies is a great opportunity to hang out with your friends, meet new people and celebrate the end of school. However, Schoolies is not a round-the-clock party and there will be quiet times during the day and mid-week. If you take care of yourself and enjoy the downtime as well as the busy times, your Schoolies experience is sure to be a good one.

Follow these tips to ensure you stay healthy and happy.

  • Take a couple of nights off from partying. Watch a movie at your hotel or go to the Chill Out Night at the Schoolies Hub.
  • Do a mid-week grocery shop to stock up on the essentials, such as bread, cereal, milk, fresh fruit and vegetables. Your body will thank you for it!
  • Take turns cooking a breakfast feast for your flatmates, even if you wake up at lunchtime! You could also ask the Red Frogs crew to come to your apartment and cook pancakes for you.
  • Visit the beach, theme parks or shopping centres during the day.
