Schoolies week gets off to a great start in Yeppoon

THE world is their oyster, but this week the class of 2012 has only one thing on their minds. 

School's not just out for summer, it's out forever.

More than 130 year 12 students registered for Schoolies Week on the Capricorn Coast last night.  The week kicked off with the first of four dance parties at the Yeppoon Surf Club which has tranformed into Schoolies' HQ until Thursday.

As has been the tradition in Yeppoon, this year's group are more interested in enjoying themselves than getting into trouble.

In the nine years it's been running, there has never been a Schoolie arrested in Yeppoon. 

Stay tuned for more updates on Schoolies Week.
