Celebrating ‘Junior Schoolies’

Fairfield City Council has a long history of recognising the outstanding academic and personal milestones of our residents.

As young people grow up, every event is a significant milestone, shared by family, friends, and as part of our community. There are few more important events in a young person’s life than graduating from primary school. Not only is it a major milestone for young people and their families, it also forms the foundation on which future education and training is built.

By way of celebrating and marking this special achievement, I will be visiting local primary schools and providing graduation certificates with a free ‘Junior Schoolies’ pass to Aquatopia for the graduating Year 6 students - to mark the end of one journey and the beginning of another.

We know what an exciting time it is for Year 12 students to mark the end of their high school years and reflect on the many friends they have made along the way. I would like to extend this positive experience to Year 6 students - so they can be proud of what they have achieved and the friends they have made in their primary schooling years - many of these bonds will last a lifetime.

With five new high-speed thrill slides opening this summer and the Fishpipe already open, Aquatopia promises to be a memorable way for these graduating students to celebrate their achievements with family and friends.

Aquatopia was built for families and has been a runaway success for affordable family fun, with 60,000 people visiting last year alone. The benefits in terms of financial sustainability have been significant and this is important. But the success is not just measured in dollars, but in the ability to allow the community to share in the magnificent facility. The opportunity to provide entry for the graduating Year 6 students is priceless.
