Drugs Awareness

Ms. Lil Hennigan, S.P.H.E. co-ordinator arranged a series of talks for all of the students in the school.

Three speakers from Narcotics Anonymous addressed each class group describing their experiences. . All of the recovering addicts stated that cannabis was the first illegal drug that they had used.

The feedback from the students was that this was a very worthwhile exercise.

A further meeting to address parents is being organised.

Garda Nora Sutton, community Garda in this area, also addressed each Junior Cycle class on the issue of drug abuse this term.
