The celebration has only just begun but Mackay Schoolie, Katie Faix, already has the ultimate souvenir from Schoolies 2016 as the winner of a spanking new Jeep Compass plus a Fiji Holiday for her parents.
Katie was the lucky winner of the inaugural Jeep giveaway announced at Saturday’s official opening ceremony on the Gold Coast, where tens of thousands of schoolies have descended for a week of fun.
Schoolies automatically went into the draw to win the Jeep and holiday simply by booking with schoolies.com, the event’s original and number one schoolies operator for nearly 30 years.
“Congratulations Katie. We hope you enjoy your new Jeep and have a safe and memorable Schoolies,” said Matt Lloyd, CEO of schoolies.com
Schoolies 2016 is off to a successful start with police, business operators and support staff praising schoolies’ behaviour.
This week sees a range of exciting exclusive schoolies.com parties followed next week by the all ages Schoolies Nation Beach Festival when interstate schoolies hit the Glitter Strip.
