Addiction Awareness Week 2017
Alcohol, Drugs, Gambling and Social Media were the focus of our Addiction Awareness Week last week, February 27th to March 3rd. Guest speakers, academics, professional practitioners and reformed addicts addressed addiction from physiological, behavioural, legal and personal experience perspectives.
This is a very serious issue, with mental health and well-being consequences for us all.
As well as the age appropriate lectures there was a poster campaign throughout the school with an emphasis on being vigilant amongst and for their peers.
I thank our team of guest speakers, the Deans, Mr Walsh, Mr Jim Ryan and the Parents Committee who planned and delivered the week.
