School Communities

Filed in: education

Overview

DEN can provide comprehensive support to entire school communities in effective drug education and tackling existing or emerging issues. We work closely with teachers, principals, school nurses and other support staff to provide information, training and advice suited to your school.

While we can provide one-off sessions for students, evidence indicates that ongoing communication and learning from within the school community is best practice for dealing with alcohol and other drug issues.

Our goal is to help school communities become self-sufficient around drug education, while knowing they can contact us any time for extra support if and when they need it.

The Process

Any member of school staff can contact DEN to request support by simply giving us a call or sending us an email.

Our team will discuss with you the kind of support you’re looking for, ¬†your school environment, and any existing or emerging issues.

We can provide support in a number of ways:

  • One-on-one support for H&PE Teachers and School Nurses
  • School staff training
  • Support to implement effective school programs, such as the Quit Support Program
  • Training for teachers to present accurate and age-appropriate drug information to students
  • Resource development

Our training and support are always tailored to your school, and we do our best to accommodate any particular needs.
