MORE than 100 Lower Eyre Peninsula Year 12 students will celebrate the end of their education at the annual Schoolies Festival in Victor Harbor this weekend.
The final exams of Geography and Musicianship were held yesterday and students have made their way to Victor Harbor for the start of the festival tomorrow night.
St Joseph's graduate Charlotte Rushby said students were most looking forward to being with their closest friends to celebrate the end of their school life.
She said school was such a long journey and the festival allowed local students to not only celebrate with other students from Lower Eyre but students from right across the state.
"We're looking forward to celebrating with our friends, but also people from other schools as well," Miss Rushby said.
Schoolies Festival police commander Superintendent Rob Williams said students should make sure they were safe when at the festival as well as when travelling there.
"Look after one another, make sensible choices and you're bound to have a positive, memorable experience," Supt Williams said.
Miss Rushby said after the Schoolies Festival was over students were planning for the next stage of their lives, which included looking for work or moving to Adelaide for university.
"It's a little daunting but we're looking forward to what the future holds," she said.
