Information for students and families, on the current COVID-19 pandemic.
Schoolies Unearthed community,
Over the last few weeks, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the world as we know it. People, communities and businesses around the world are hurting, and our thoughts go out to everyone who is facing health challenges, disruptions, loss of income, and other unknowns in the coming months.
Like many small businesses, Schoolies Unearthed and Antipodeans are trying to navigate these unprecedented events, whilst putting the safety and wellbeing of our customers, team members and partners at the forefront. We want you to know, we are deeply committed to giving you, our high school grads, the opportunity to mark the end of high school in a positive, rewarding and meaningful way.
I’m booked on a trip, what does this mean for me?
If you are booked on a Schoolies Unearthed trip due to depart in 2020 or 2021, our aim is to run your trip as scheduled. Please note, we do not run trips when the government travel advice is at Level 3 or Level 4. We will be monitoring authorities’ advice and mandates regularly, to assess the viability and safety of your trip closer to the date and aim to communicate with you as regularly as possible as we receive more information.
We have put a freeze on all future payments towards your trip, as we believe this is the responsible course of action considering the uncertain financial times ahead for individuals and families. We understand that you might be feeling a little financially hesitant at the moment, and would like to take some of the stress out of the situation for you.
As we navigate these uncertain times, a small core team will be working to communicate with all our students and families, however please understand that our response may be delayed. We ask all of our community who have booked trips with us to please be patient as we work around the clock to find a way through this crisis.
For further information on your trip, or if you’re interested in booking a trip with us in the future, please refer to our FAQs below.
Look after yourself and those around you, and thank you for your patience and understanding. We look forward to many more adventures with you in the future.
