Primary schools to host awareness sessions

Parents and carers have the chance to learn more about issues relating to the misuse of drugs and alcohol at a series of events being held at local primary schools.

The courses start tomorrow (Wednesday) at St John’s Primary School, and are a joint venture involving the Department of Education and Children, the police and the charity Care for the Family.

They will last for two hours and begin at 1.30pm, and further sessions are planned at Onchan Primary, Scoill Ree Gorree and Scoill Phurt le Moirrey.

Carolyn Shipstone of Care for the Family says the courses are designed to increase the awareness of the people closest to children:
