Eh, it's a personal decision that shouldn't really be influenced by others. If you want to, go. If you don't, don't. It really is that simple.

I chose not to go to schoolies in the peak period and instead went later on in January to the Gold Coast with a few friends - considered a holiday rather than schoolies.

There are ways you can do 'schoolies' without getting absolutely hammered and partying you know.

Very true. I know of a number of people who went camping, hiking etc. for their schoolies.

I didn't do traditional schoolies, my "celebration" was a holiday in Malaysia with some family members that I had saved up for all year and I don't have any regrets, it was awesome :)

I, like you, am sitting at home.

Can't tell if I'm just lazy or disinterested.  :-X

With all the stuff you see and hear on T.V even if a person is responsible I wouldn't really advise them to go. There are much safer places you can go for enjoyment, rather than being peer pressured into doing something you might not want to at schoolies imo =)

Like Aaron said, it's really up to what you want you want to do. I'm not going to schoolies, and many of my friends aren't either becuase I just don't want to. Loud music and jumping around and all that stuff just isn't my cup ot tea - infact tea is more my cup of tea. I Intend to go on a more relaxing Roadtrip at the end of the year instead.
Enjoy you're chilling at home and you're certainly not alone!
