In conjunction with the drug education seminars that were held today for our Secondary students , the ‘Teen Challenge’ organisation will present an evening parent workshop tonight.
Date: Wednesday 9 June
Time: 7 – 9pm
Where: Kuyper Christian School Library
The “Changing the Narrative” theme presented in the parent workshop provides attendees with information on the current alcohol and drug culture, explores some of the underlying reasons for uptake and highlights how to identify the tell-tale signs that someone is using. Alongside the student seminars, #NotEvenOnce® aims to equip schools and families with tools to have conversations and help build resilience.
These seminars have been presented annually at Kuyper Christian School and many other schools throughout Australia for several years. They deliver a powerful message about the risks associated with the use of illicit drugs and alcohol and the misuse of prescription medication.
In addition, Mrs Stewart, one of our parents, will be sharing a short presentation about the Google Family Link program that she and her husband use to manage devices in their home with 4 teenagers. Google Family Link gives control to parents and helps them teach appropriate device use for their children at home.
The evening will conclude with supper and a brief Q & A session.
We encourage all parents and carers to attend this helpful and informative event. What these presenters have to say will be gold for families struggling with technology and other teenage issues.
