First Year Drug Awareness

Wester Hailes Youth Agency have just completed a week of working with Forrester High School S1 pupils on drug awareness.

Staff spent time with all first year classes looking at different drugs, their effects and the risks associated with them, as well as answering any questions the young people had.  We also worked with first years on challenging some myths and showing pupils how to find reliable sources of information about different drugs.

We were delighted that the young people involved partipated so enthusiastically, asking some interesting and challenging questions and finding lots of creative ways to present their work.
