The delivery of drug education in secondary schools across the island is facilitated by the Drug Education Officer for Secondary Schools and a team of trained NCSA volunteers. The aim of the programme is to provide students with accurate information on new drug trends as well as the physiological, psychological and social consequences of using alcohol and other drugs especially during the adolescent phase of their development. In addition to the theoretical component, the programme seeks to provide students with the skills that young people need to help them to understand themselves and their environment and to develop the confidence to make informed decisions.
How does it all work?
The delivery of drug education is facilitated through requests from the Guidance Counsellors at secondary schools through the Health and Family Life Education curriculum.
