The Year 7 Alcohol and other drugs education program is designed to help young people develop good decision-making skills. Students learn and practise these skills as they explore the following topics:

  • coping with change
  • helping myself and supporting others
  • making choices
  • accessing health information
  • researching health information.

How you can help your children

To support your children as they learn about alcohol and other drugs you may like to:

  • talk about viewing change as an opportunity or a positive challenge
  • encourage coping strategies such as exercise, socialising, seeking help, positive self-talk, distraction from stress, comforting oneself, expressing oneself, taking positive action
  • discuss school and family expectations. For example, outline your expectations for what your children do when they complete their homework and study
  • encourage children to make their own decisions and talk with them about how they came to that decision
  • discuss health facts and healthy living.
