The Queensland Government’s Safer Schoolies Initiative (Initiative), led by the department, is a whole-of-government response which delivers support services to key tourism destinations that attract Year 12 school leavers holidaying together.
The purpose of the Initiative is to enhance the safety and responsible behaviour of school leavers, whilst minimising disruption to the local communities where they gather through a range of strategies which reinforce public safety and personal responsibility.
As part of the Initiative, the department, through the Safer Schoolies Initiative Unit (Schoolies Unit), delivers the Gold Coast Schoolies Community Safety Response, in partnership with the City of Gold Coast, as a mechanism to manage the influx of tens of thousands of young people choosing to holiday together on the Gold Coast. Council provides a range of in-kind support to assist with the delivery of the Schoolies Response, both internally and externally sourced.
The department requires the services of a suitably experienced event management company to undertake the role of Site Contractor for the annual Gold Coast Schoolies Community Safety Response (Schoolies Response).
