Drugs Education and Advice

Bob Tait of Drugs Education UK (DRED UK) and former member of the Royal Navy Drugs Education Team has given a series of specialist ‘drugs’ lectures to parents and pupils at Monmouth School for Girls and Monmouth School for Boys, as part of the Confidence4Life (PSHE) programme.

B­ob has been working with schools on Drug and Alcohol education for many years. The sessions were tailored for specific age groups (Year 9 and above) and covered everything from illegal drugs, medicines and alcohol, through to UK and global law on drugs-related convictions.  The parents’ lecture in the evening focused on the legal ramifications for students both in terms of their university education and potential, future careers, if caught taking, or handling illegal drugs.

Following the evening lecture, parents also commented on how extremely informative the lectures were. Comments included: “Brilliant…the part about the law and possession of drugs was excellent…we need to find a way of counteracting the causes…invaluable.”
