This year we continued to embed a more comprehensive approach to resilience, alcohol and other drugs, and road safety education in WA schools through the CHAT initiative.
Forty metropolitan and regional schools were presented with a CHAT award in recognition of their commitment to resilience, road safety and AOD education. A highlight of the ceremony was the 12 schools recognised for achieving Gold Level. A further 28 schools received Bronze or Silver awards.
CHAT was awarded for Outstanding Achievement in Injury Prevention, Early Intervention, Treatment and/or Recovery at the 2017 Injury Prevention and Safety Promotion Awards in Perth. CHAT was also selected as a finalist in the National AOD Excellence and Innovation Awards for preventing and reducing harms in young people.
