Alcohol and our Teenagers

When: Monday 11th September at 7.00pm

Where: Geraldine High School Library

Who: Shayne Broughton - the Liquor Licensing Health Promoter for Community and Public Health (Canterbury District Health Board).

What’s it about?

All parents and caregivers (and their sons/daughters) are welcome to come along to school to listen to Shayne Broughton talk about alcohol and our teenagers. Shayne will cover:

  • the effect of alcohol on the body
  • the legal side in terms of age etc
  • parties, age and drinking
  • how parents can support their sons/daughters to work through all of this and keep them safe.

Shayne has spoken at an evening before and was well received by parents and students. He is down to earth and engaging. Come along and listen to what he has to say, ask all the burning questions you have!

Our local Policeman Andrew Charles will also be in attendance.
