As a secondary school we continually seek ways in which to be proactive regarding student wellbeing. CHLY utilise a 'harm minimisation' approach to drugs and alcohol which has been found to be the most effective approach to minimise risk. Through using an educational approach to minimise risk rather than students being told not to do something, we found that the students fully engaged within the experience. The presenter Tracey was dynamic and the children appeared to listen to every word. Rather than this being another adult lecturing students, Tracey was able to deliver hard hitting facts in a student friendly way. I think we all learnt new facts this week!
Hard hitting and brilliant, thank you Tracey and CHLY.
