Drug Prevention Talk
Preventive Drug Education is a major Singapore government initiative to empower our young with the knowledge of commonly abused drugs and to help prevent them from falling prey to drug abuse. As part of the Post-Exam Activities in SFMS, we invited two officers from the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) to conduct a highly informative and eye-opening session for our Upper Primary and High School students.
CNB Officers Syamil Rashid and Elfi Nadin greeted our students with a fun and upbeat video on why drugs are bad. Explaining that Singapore is in a vulnerable region surrounded by neighboring countries with rising drug problems. We need to be well educated on the harmful effect that drugs can have on our health for our young to make better life decisions. Our students were surprised to learn that even some sweets and candy may contain small amounts of drugs if we buy them from unreliable sources. Albeit a short 30-minute sharing session, our students gained insightful knowledge on the common types of drugs in the region, and the laws that protect our country against drug abuse.
