Over the next two weeks, around 70,00 people will be converging on the Gold Coast for the celebration of the year: schoolies week.
It's a time to let you hair down, celebrate a year of hard work, and enjoy the summer with your mates.
Take it from the seasoned veterans here at FYA - if you're going to have a good time at schoolies, it's important to plan ahead and look after one another. There's nothing more unpleasant than being stuck in a hostel on day two because you didn't wear sunscreen, and your body is the same colour as Tony Abbott's budgie smugglers.
