Safer Teens

The Safer Teens workshop supports school staff working with Year 7 to 12 students and provides the opportunity to:

  • unpack the new Challenges and Choices teacher resources that are mapped to the Western Australian Curriculum Health and Physical Education
  • gain greater understanding of the effects and broader impacts of alcohol, tobacco, cannabis, caffeine, and over-the-counter and prescription drugs
  • clarify the ‘real picture’ of student alcohol and other drugs use supported by the Australian Secondary Students Alcohol and Drug (ASSAD) Survey statistics
  • participate in a range of teaching and learning strategies that can be transferred into the classroom to promote student wellbeing and prevent harms from alcohol and other drugs use, including road trauma.

FREE copies of the Challenges and Choices teacher resource, and student workbooks, will be sent to you and your school upon completion of this workshop.

The workshop is free, lunch is provided and certificates of participation will be issued on completion. SDERA will also cover the cost of teacher relief.

Participation expectations

Participants should have an understanding of the Western Australian Curriculum and Assessment Outline.
