Planning your Schoolies experience already? Check out Fiji
MICHAELA Coyle hopes to help graduating students select their Schoolies destinations.
The 17-year-old graduated from Tannum Sands High School last year and to celebrate her 12 years of schooling, she spent three days on the Gold Coast and seven days in Fiji.
And now she is endeavouring to become a Fiji Schoolies ambassador.
"Fiji seemed to just be the better option for Schoolies. I got to go overseas for the first time and it was amazing," Miss Coyle said.
During the seven days on the picturesque holiday island, she said authorised crew members took them on tours and made sure everyone was okay during their Schoolies experience.
They island-hopped within Fiji, went scuba diving, snorkelling and much more, fulfilling lots of tourist experiences.
"There were themed parties and different DJs, so that part was fun too," she said.
To become a crew member for Fiji Schoolies, Miss Coyle first has to prove she is a keen ambassador.
"I would encourage everyone to consider Fiji because it's such a different experience," she said.
"You get about three months off, if you don't already have planned work, so it's a great time to travel."
