City students leading the way with drugs education training

Posted on 11.03.2019

Dixons City Academy Year 12 students were presented certificates in ‘Peer Drugs Education Training’ by the Lord Mayor of Bradford at Margaret MacMillan Tower on Friday 8 March. Twenty-four students have been involved in the Peer Drugs initiative this year and will be teaching all Year 8 form classes about the dangers of; smoking, drugs and alcohol in PDS sessions before Easter.

The awards event also involved a re-launch of the initiative by ADEPT, (Alcohol & Drugs Education Prevention Team), and the Year 12 Dixons City students were invited as role models, for other schools across the borough who are being advised to get involved in the project. The students will get a further opportunity to be presented with awards later in the year by BSDPI (Bradford Schools Drug Prevention Initiative) who were also in attendance at the event.
