Drug Prevention Day at RIS Swiss Section – Deutschsprachige Schule Bangkok
This event on 28th September 2016, in cooperation with FCD Prevention Works™, had the goal of explaining the chemical and psychological effects of drugs on our bodies as well as to present methods for strengthening the students’ personalities.
FCD Prevention Works™ is a leading international nonprofit provider of school-based substance abuse prevention services and FCD has worked worldwide to provide students and the adults who care for them with the knowledge, understanding, and skills they need to make intelligent, healthy choices about alcohol, tobacco and other drug use. The event was held by Sarah Burrill and Jose Rowe Palafox to help our students in Grades 7 and 8 develop the skills they need to become healthy, responsible adults. The teachers did not take part in the students´ session to allow them to share their opinions and ideas in an even more frank and open way.
Additional to the session for the students FCD also offered presentations for parents and faculty members.
