Pupils from The Grange Learning Centre took part in a cannabis and peer pressure workshop delivered by Be Safe North East, which provides prevention workshops.
Pastoral Manager and Designated Safeguarding Lead, Emily Byrne shares more detail about the session.
"The aim of the workshop was to help provide a greater awareness and understanding of the issues relating to peer pressure, taking drugs, drinking alcohol and advice to help make the right decision. They also discovered reasons why people may use cannabis and its affect as well as the laws relating to the drug. They also explored the impact on an individuals education, family life and future careers."
And finally, Emily commented:
"The children and young people engaged very well throughout the workshop and provided excellent feedback on what they had learned during the day."
Be Safe North Team are looking to revisit the school in the near future to provide another workshop.
