School Leavers 2020 Update

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the WA School Leavers program with organised events from Monday, 23 November through to Thursday, 26 November will take on a slightly different feel this year.


A night-time entertainment zone will again be established in Dunsborough, with WA Police determining how the event schedule may look.


WA Police is working with partner organisations and the Department of Health for potential options for structured activities which would comply with the relevant Directions and all other COVID-19 health requirements.


The key focus for WA Police, with respect to School Leavers, is to provide harm minimisation and safety to the School Leavers and the local south-west community.


School leavers and parents are encouraged to download the free Leavers App, which will be updated with this year’s information by 1 November. It will have all the latest information on events, getting around, and tips to stay safe.


For updates on the School Leavers schedule for Leavers week, please refer to the Leavers WA Facebook page.


Leavers WA 2020

Monday 23rd to Thursday 26th November

Leavers is an opportunity for Year 12 students from 2020 to celebrate the end of their schooling with their friends.

On this website you will find:

  • Information to help plan your Leavers;
  • What you need to know about your Leavers wristband;
  • Advice for parents and guardians; and
  • Tips for you to stay safe during Leavers and where to go for help if something goes wrong. 


The WA State Government Leavers Strategy is a harm minimisation response to School Leaver's celebrations. Events occurring outside of the Strategy and in other locations; such as boat parties and pre/post Leavers week events, are not supported by the WA Police Force, the Department of Health, or partner organisations.
