This week we were fortunate to have leading drug and alcohol expert Paul Dillon, succeed yet again in emphasising key messages to our senior students around keeping themselves and their friends safe.
Delivered remotely this year, Paul’s messages are always tailored to the specific needs of the Years 10, 11 and 12 students.
By accepting that young people can never be immune from risk, Paul builds up important trust in his audiences and his concern for their well being is genuine.
Paul also spoke with parents, outlining the challenges faced by both parents and young people whose expectations about their school and life experiences have had to be dramatically adjusted because of the pandemic.
I recommend a visit to Paul’s website for further parent resources, books ,fact sheets etc.
