A Queensland mother slammed Schoolies organizers to encourage revelers to join their Tinder events.
Libby Marshall's daughter graduates from Year 12 at the All Hallows & # 39; School in Brisbane and celebrates Schoolies in Surfers Paradise with her classmates in November.
Like many parents, Ms. Marshall is concerned about her daughter's safety at upcoming events and was shocked when she saw a new campaign promoting the popular dating app through the official Schoolies channels.
She recently received an email from Schoolies organizers who published their new collaboration with Tinder, including the slogan & # 39; GET ON THIS & # 39 ;.

The email that Ms. Marshall received (in the photo) encouraged influenceable school leavers to have & # 39; count ANY moment & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Tinder is coming to Schoolies in 2019 to help you count ANY moment & # 39 ;, says the email.
& # 39; Because we know that single never has to go home early, knows the best places and goes home with the wildest stories. & # 39;
Ms. Marshall slammed the organizers because she believes Schoolies should be a celebration of achievements and should not promote free sex with influenceable young people.
"It is planting the seed that spontaneous, casual sex with everyone is okay and I think it is completely the wrong message to send to our children," Mrs. Marshall said The courier post.
& # 39; It makes me sick to think Schoolies are officially approving of these things. & # 39;

Ms. Marshall has filed a formal complaint with Schoolies and believes organizers have missed the target with their new campaign.
& # 39; Why should we expose children to this? & # 39; Mrs. Marshall said. & # 39; It is not acceptable. Where is the moral compass of the world? & # 39;
