Schoolies Festival 2018: day one | PHOTOS, REPORT

There were no major incidents on the first night of Schoolies Festival in Victor Harbor, police report.

SAPOL’s Superintendent Mark Fairney said school leavers dressed in their ‘schoolies’ tops for the first night and enjoyed a great night out.

More than 50 expiation notices were handed out when schoolies were found drinking alcohol in a dry zone.

"It’s great to see so many Schoolies have taken advice from parents and police to be responsible and enjoy themselves lets hope this continues for the rest of the weekend,” Supt Fairney said.

“The volunteers from Encounter Youth continue to do a great job and are always there to help. Remember if you don't feel safe or something doesn't feel right the green team and police are there to help don't hesitate to ask."

An issue of note ocurred just after 1am on Saturday, November 24, when a non-school leaver allegedly started a fight on Ocean Street in Victor Harbor.

Police charged the 23-year-old local man with fighting in a public place.

He received bail and will face court on January 7.
