School Leavers' Week 2017

For Victorian school leavers, schoolies is a time to celebrate an exciting milestone in their lives but this shouldn't mean impacting their health and safety, or causing problems for the communities where they decide to celebrate.

Celebrating is a normal part of life. For many young people, school leaver celebrations will be their first opportunity to really experience celebrating a life event as an adult. 

If you are a school principal, a teacher, carer or parent, you can encourage young people to look after themselves by providing appropriate and accurate information, for example about alcohol, drugs and sex.  This can be the key to reducing the risks and minimising harm.
