For those looking for information on Schoolies in Byron in 2020 - there are NO plans for a schoolies HUB this year. There are no current plans for any kind of response, other than to have police and health authorities guide whatever restrictions are in place at that time. School leavers still intending to come to Byron need to be aware that border closures could impact on their plans and that this could also come down to a lockdown, as seen in other areas, if new cases are seen in this area, which could also impact on local business closures, services going remote, quarantine restrictions etc.

If you are concerned, and you have already booked accommodation etc, and no longer wish to attend, then contact your accommodation providers to discuss refunds, or postponement of your holiday.

We are living in uncertain times, and right now Schoolies is not a priority, but what is a priority is to have you consider whether it is the time to be engaging in such a celebration.

Young people are the group with the highest infection rates of Covid-19, and while for many it will not necessarily mean that they will become extremely unwell, for some, of course, it could also mean serious illness or death. Be wise with your choices now, as they could seriously impact on others.

Byron Bay is a tiny town. It does not have the capacity to deal with a serious outbreak of Covid-19. Our local Byron Central hospital is not a hospital that has the capacity to have even just one person on a respirator, and anyone seriously unwell is immediately transferred to other hospitals in other towns. Schoolies has always caused extreme impact on our local ambulance and hospital services, please consider this in your own thoughts on schoolies for this year.

It is entirely possible there will be NO Schoolies HUB or any organised activities for schoolies coming to Byron in 2020 due to Covid-19. We just thought to let anyone know who may have booked to come to Byron Bay this year. It is a major operation and takes a lot of funding to make it happen each year. With the biggest amount of work to prepare, actually happening during the first half of the year, and a lot of funding coming through local businesses, who are all closed down at the moment and who will themselves struggle to stay afloat and to even reopen, the HUB is something that is just not possible to organise this year. We aren't sure as yet, of what government restrictions may stay in place for Nov/Dec and how this may also effect future years.... but we will update as the year goes on. ... See MoreSee Less

The Byron Schoolies Safety Response are still looking for volunteers to help with the Byron Schoolies HUB. It starts on Nov 17 and goes til Dec 4 and at least 100 volunteers are needed to make it all happen. If you've thought about volunteering, but aren't sure about it, then check out this video made by the Alcohol and Drug Foundation last year, after the BUDDI Community Drug Action Team won the first ever '2016 State Influence Award' from the NSW Ministry of Health for a Community Drug Action Team program of excellence for their work over the last nine years of running the Byron Schoolies HUB. To volunteer to be a part of this award winning program, contact the coordinator Nicqui at hubvolunteers@yahoo.com.au to register. Get involved in this great program! It's fun and it helps to keep our town and these young visitors safe and happy! 🙂 youtu.be/fjoSmCLqpwI ... See MoreSee Less

PS If you upload the clip Facebook (rather than being a link to youtube) will favour the sharing of it... something I've just learned 🙂

Patient Norm knows when to call NSW Ambulance for a paramedic. Do you? We're thinking these posters might be good for the Byron Schoolies HUB this year... Ambulances during schoolies get flogged with all sorts of call-outs that just don't warrant their services.

Boss Frog Andy has some helpful tips to keep under your cap in the lead up to Schoolies! Would you accept candy from a stranger? Uhhh no 🙈 So don't accept drinks from randoms! Drink spiking can easily happen if you're not careful. Only accept unopened drinks and keep an eye on them at all times. That way you'll be confident of what you're drinking 👍🏼😄 #schoolies #redfrogsau #redfrogs #topschooliestips #partysafe @schooliesBoss Frog has some helpful tips to keep under your cap in the lead up to Schoolies!
