Wanai opts for adrenalin over alcohol for Schoolies!

Wanai Tapau-Bon will join sixteen other school-leavers from across Australia who will ditch the Gold Coast crowds this year. Instead, they will be celebrating the end of their schooling journey with a drug and alcohol-free week of adrenalin-inducing adventures in New Zealand.

The group will cross the Tasman on December 1 as part of yLead’s drug and alcohol free Schoolies alternative, Thrill Out. This adrenaline-fueled alternative offers activities such as jet boating, white water rafting, quad biking and luging as well as a unique glimpse into Maori culture. The Thrill Out participants will take a day out of adventure to serve the community and join the Salvation Army to collect items for their Christmas appeal.

yLead, a not-for-profit association that delivers leadership development experiences to thousands of students across Australia, first recognised the need for a Schoolies alternative in 2011. They believe that many young people want the chance to step outside their comfort zone and challenge themselves, rather than spend a week partying.

yLead is developing a range of drug and alcohol free Schoolies alternatives in order to provide school leavers with an array of experiences that will enhance their resilience, develop their cultural awareness and positively contribute to our world.
