133 year 12 grads partied at Yeppoon during Schoolies Week

SUMMER'S almost here and school is well and truly finished for the Class of 2012.

Schoolies week at Yeppoon has wrapped up as another big success with 133 year 12 graduates from around CQ and some from the Sunshine Coast enjoying the four-day party.

For the eleventh year in a row, there were no arrests.

Constable Jennifer Henry says everyone was really well behaved, with no trouble.

The Blow Zero competition, where participants volunteer to blow into the breath metre twice a night, was a winner.

Each zero reading earned an entry to win a Samsung tablet.

Sgt Greg Jones from PCYC says he'd love to see it run around the country with a car as a prize.

He says the kids love the competition and it's a real factor in minimizing alcohol consumption.
