Year 8 Decide How to Promote Safe Choices with EXTERN

E-mail Print

Year 8 Decide How to Promote Safe Choices with EXTERNLocal community charity, Extern, visited Year 8 today to run a workshop covering the four potential stumbling blocks a secondary school aged pupil needs to be prepared for.

With a team of very enthusiastic workshop leaders from Extern, pupils explored the pitfalls of social media, the difference between healthy and toxic friendship and thought about the dangers and health risks of drugs and alcohol, smoking and vaping. Pupils explored different scenarios and discussed potential solutions  - feedback which will be collated to form the basis of a leaflet which EXTERN will produce and give to us to distribute to the pupils.

Thanks for your interesting and insightful feedback Year 8!
