The themes explored include: anti-social behaviour, illegal purchase (including the law on alcohol and age-restricted products) and attitude to risk and sexual health (including unplanned pregnancy and STIs). The workshop content is adaptable to suit individual school’s requirements. Both the performance and the workshop afterwards aim to make students more aware about drugs and alcohol and the dangers of them. Students will also be informed where they can go for help and support within the College and with supporting agencies. The session will be supported by their classroom teachers for the lessons they will miss on this morning.
The themes explored will be followed up by the SRE team in smaller groups during a 2hours session on the next Extended Learning Day (Tuesday 7th February).

We feel it is very important for students to receive education about Drugs in order for them to know the risks, to be able to make good choices and most importantly for them to know where to go for help and advice.
