Drugs and Alcohol Awareness Evening for Parents and Children

On Wednesday 21st September 2011 at Aghaderg/Ballyvarley GAA Hall at 7:30pm a special talk will be given for parents and children, from P7 and up, about the dangers and harm caused by the misuse of drugs and alcohol.

Safeguarding our young people and their families is paramount. One of the main ways of achieving this is to provide information that will promote a better understanding of some of the key issues involved. It also provides an opportunity for parents to address this topic with their children, empowering and enabling them to make the right choices in their lives.

We have three key speakers who will individually address this topic – each speaker will focus on their particular area of expertise. We are therefore very grateful to welcome:

Warren Todd, PSNI Drugs and AlcoholLiaison Education Officer

Gary Doherty, GAA/County Drugs Alcohol Officer

Deborah McCague, REACT – Community and Drug Support

Each speaker will be available afterwards to discuss issues and answer questions.

Our overall objective is to promote a happier, healthier and more confident mindset in our young people, to help them deal more effectively with the pressures of modern day challenges.
