'Dangers of Vaping' Guest Speaker

'Dangers of Vaping' Guest Speaker
Dear Parents/Guardians,
We are delighted to announce that a visiting speaker, Barbara Corr, will be meeting with 1st, 2nd & 3rd year students to give a workshop on the dangers of vaping on Tuesday 9th January. Please find here a link to a letter for parents from the Department of Education about the dangers of vaping and how you can engage in discussion with your child about vaping.
Barbara Corr was a nurse for over 12 years and presents workshops to educate students about the dangers of smoking and vaping, and to provide them with the tools they need to make informed decisions about their health. She tries to make the presentations as interactive as possible and uses a few props to engage the students, e.g. a mannequin with a healthy and smokers lung so the students can see the difference.
We encourage you to talk to your child both before and after the presentation on Tuesday 9th January so that they are prepared for the workshop and able to positively engage with the subject matter. As ever, the more schools and parents work together on matters such as this, the clearer the message is delivered to and understood by students.
In addition, we have a Parent/Guardian Wellbeing Resources Padlet, which includes a section with useful parent resources about vaping and smoking, which can be found on the website. Parents/Guardians > Wellbeing Resources. Here is the direct link for the padlet: https://padlet.com/embed/yqmmooghthgpaav3

Thank you for your support,

Diane Birnie
