Schoolies Information for Parents

From one parent to another, here’s some sound advice if your son or daughter is looking to go on Schoolies. It can be a stressful time for you as a parent – so it’s great to have some peace of mind knowing that you are dealing with a professional organiser with a perfect safety record, top level accreditation and an 12 year track record. Sure Thing Schoolies can be contacted 24 hours a 7 days a week on 1300 49 59 69 or

Being a parent of a schoolie can be one of the most stressful experiences. It’s the key moment where your child transitions into the next stage of their life – adulthood.

Whilst it may be natural to preserve and protect and to fight this transition, it’s also a good time to take the next step into adding a new level of responsibility and maturity into their portfolio.

You can do this whilst keeping safety as your main priority.

When it comes to safety – booking at an Official Schoolies Resort will provide the most protection for your child, as the setup is catered especially for this demographic. You may also want to consider the location of travel. If they are heading overseas (which is common nowadays), Bali can be a lot of fun, but not high on the safety scale. On the other hand, schoolies in Vanuatu is one of the most highly rated schoolies events (in terms of fun) and is also one of the safest. However, it may be that they want to stay local and travel nearby – Either way, if it’s booked as an official schoolies trip, you know that there are extra measures in place for their safety and protection, as well as being a great set up for them that’s congruent with an enjoyable genuine schoolies atmosphere.

As a student, your child has a world of things to worry about, especially with their exams coming up. As a parent, it’s a great opportunity to help out by doing the research for them.
If there is one major advantage that is often over-looked, it’s the advantage of booking early. By booking well in advance, you will still have the full range of options available (including schoolies events that rate highly for fun, parties, safety, schoolies events, etc.) The later you book, the less number of options you will have that satisfy this criteria, and the more expensive it gets.

The other major advantage of booking early is that it gives them something to really look forward to over their senior high school period. This can often be exciting, inspirational, and will keep them motivated during school knowing that there is a prize at the end of it.

Sure Thing Schoolies Travel has had incredibly good reviews over the last decade and has a FLAWLESS safety record at its events – quite an amazing feat with the magnitude of schoolies and number of events over the years.

If nothing else, booking with Sure Thing Schoolies Travel will help you sleep better at night during the week your kids are away.
