We also incorporate Resilience lessons into our Pastoral Care lessons in the Secondary School, once a week. Secondary students also have a set Health lesson each week as well, drug education is taught over one term. Primary students have two lessons per week allocated to Health and PBS focus. To promote our Drug Curriculum, School Drug Education Guidelines were also developed to support staff and Admin.
