Busting myths at local schools with the Youth Commission

09 December 2016

Members from our Youth Commission have spent the last two days at Thornden School raising awareness about substance misuse with Years 9 and 10.

Members were invited to the school to share details of their lethal highs campaign after a teacher heard them speaking at an event earlier this year.

One of the students said afterwards: “I was just saying to my mum the school should bring in people to talk to us about drugs. If you’d come and said ‘don’t take drugs’ I wouldn’t of listened but you gave us your experiences and the facts – it was really useful.”
