Annnnnnnd pen’s down!

Finishing school is a seriously exciting feeling and it’s little wonder most students have one thing on the mind the minute exams are over: schoolies. Schoolies is the perfect way to celebrate the end of your studies. You get to let your hair down and party with your mates after a year of non-stop exam stress. No doubt you want to make the most of every moment, so check out our survival kit below and make sure you come prepared.

Hot tip: Pack a toothbrush, an extra pair of undies and don’t forget your phone charger!

 Schoolies Survival Kit 1

Schoolies: Do’s and don’ts

Do slip, slop, slap y'all

Sunburn is real.

Don't get hangry

Head out for supplies on the first day so you're set for the week, and cruise the UberEats options available near you.

Do enjoy some downtime

Play cards, watch Netflix and catch up on all the sleep you skipped while studying! Bring something fun to do between parties.

Don’t party without a Plan B

Write down the accommodation address and keep $20 handy in case you get stuck, and always take a portable charger in case your phone dies.

Do keep your crew together

Pick out a central, well-lit meeting point in case the squad gets separated.

Don’t forget to look after yourself

No skipping meals! And remember to drink plenty of water and swap out every couple of bevs for something non-alcoholic.

Do pack protection

You know, just in case.

What can I do now?
