Support Your Child During Their End of School Celebrations

Being away from home without parental supervision, and in an unfamiliar situation can result in some school leavers feeling worried about getting in trouble if something does go wrong. It’s important to keep open communication and explain you are there for them at any time while they are away.

 Not giving alcohol to your child to take away with them and not giving them money to buy alcohol are some of the best things you can do for their safety and wellbeing during end of school celebrations. 


Be available for your child to contact at any time

  • Maintain regular contact with your child while they are away and encourage them to contact you at any time if they are feeling uncomfortable or need to speak to someone
  • Be prepared to go and get them if they are not coping and want to come home.
  • Arrange to stay somewhere close by with other parents if possible.
