Schoolies

HI All

We are coming up to that time of the year when our kids have finished their exams and now believe they are adult enough to make their own decisions about partying. Lots make mistakes and many learn from them. In the past there have been 20 or 30 houseboats taken out by the school leavers for the most debauched partying.

I believe this has all been moderated by anxious parents and teachers. I do believe however that we need to remind folks about what is being done to prevent the kids becoming too unruly

I have just read the following article in the Australian Courier Mail about the Aussie equivalent – Schoolies

Ciao, Mike G.
