Drug and alcohol abuse are serious problems that affect young people at earlier ages than in the past. This term, we invited the Drug Enforcement Commission to present to our young people on the many dangers of using drugs. As part of our school-based education for drug abuse prevention, students learned about the different classes of drugs, their effects on the body and the consequences we can encounter if caught abusing drugs.
“It was very interactive and informative. We learnt about the risks of taking drugs and the impact they can have in our lives.” Tecla (Form 4).
