School graduation holds significant meaning to adolescents worldwide.

In Australia, school leavers tend to celebrate what’s called ‘Schoolies’ over a week.

The most popular destination Gold Coast is expecting around eighteen thousand school leavers this November.

Queensland’s Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women and the City of Gold Coast aim to create a safer environment for schoolies through the Safer Schoolies Response chaired by local lawyer Mark Reaburn.

Reaburn says the group is organising alcohol-free beach parties as a safety response from 7pm to midnight from 16 to 22 November at the fenced Schoolies Hub.
