Year 10-13 receive powerful drugs education message

On Thursday, the Daniel Spargo Mabbs Foundation came to school to share their drugs awareness programme by putting on a play about the story of a local 16 year old boy who died following his consumption of MDMA. His parents set up the DSM Foundation to educate young people about the dangers of drugs as they believe that if it happened to Daniel – a boy who was bright, articulate, funny, chatty, popular and talented – it could happen to anyone.

It was a very moving performance and the girls had a workshop afterwards about making safer choices. This awareness programme has been shared in many schools and students are now more aware of the risks and how to make choices to keep themselves and their friends safe.
