Schoolies advice for Year 12

BUNDABERG High School students were treated to a fun and informative drama production at the TAFE theatre yesterday, highlighting the dangers associated with Schoolies' Week.

The Indigenous Wellbeing Centre's Youth Alcohol and Drug Program and Bundaberg Regional Council hosted the Choices program which was an opportunity for high school students about to embark on end-of-year celebrations to learn some valuable lessons in a relaxed manner.

"They provide relevant information on alcohol and drugs, safe sex, accommodation and the importance of having your ID on your person at all times," Indigenous Wellbeing Centre's Youth Alcohol and Drug spokeswoman Fiona O'Farrell said.

"They use pop culture that current Year 12 students can relate to like One Direction and Family Guy," she said.

She said it was important that students become aware of the support network available to them prior to Schoolies Week.
