DRUGS AND ALCOHOL: WHAT PARENTS NEED TO KNOW



Did you know that research shows that parent involvement is a key component of effective prevention? Children whose parents talk to them about alcohol and other drugs are less likely to use them. Parental involvement is crucial to our efforts to reduce the risk teenagers face.


When: Thursday 5 October 2017 19:00-21:00

Where: Malcolm Davies Auditorium (MDA)


ISH is pleased to host an evening with an experienced Free from Chemical Dependency (FCD) prevention specialist who is able to support and guide parents.


Answer common questions such as:


"How do I talk to my child about drugs and alcohol?"

"What are the warning signs that my child may be abusing alcohol or other drugs?"


"What do I say about my own experiences with alcohol and other drugs when my child asks me?"

"What are some ways to teach my child to resist the pressure to drink or use drugs?"


This evening event presents an ideal opportunity for discussing alcohol and other drug related issues with your children.


We want our students to hear from both school and home that we want to support them in making good, informed and healthy choices about alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use by adolescents - and that we are committed to keeping our children safe.


Please feel free to contact the Health Officer and the Counselling and Learning Support Staff with questions or concerns schoolcounselling@ishthehague.nl


FCD Prevention Works (www.fcd.org), a part of the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, is a leading international nonprofit provider of school-based substance abuse prevention services. For over 40 years, we have worked with nearly 2 million students in 70 different countries, providing them with the knowledge, understanding, and skills they need to make healthy choices.


From Monday 2 October until Friday 6 October 2017 an FCD prevention specialist will be leading discussion, assemblies and drop-in chats for students and staff at ISH.

On Monday 28 August the orchestra had its first rehearsal for the year 2017-2018. The orchestra group seems to go from strength to strength and this looks to be another rewarding year for all those involved. Mr Jones has many fantastic things planned and if you would like to be part of it, just let him know.

Here are some photos from Monday.
