The Year 12 Health students are currently studying the issue of Alcohol Misuse among adolescents for their external examination.
They were lucky enough to start the term with a visit from Pat Buckley. Pat is based in Tauranga, and is an educational speaker (Amped4Life) who visits schools around the country to discuss topics such as Drugs and Alcohol misuse.
Pat uses personal experience both from his life growing up, as well as his life as a paramedic to shed some light on some of the more harmful aspects of alcohol. His talk covered influences around drinking, the consequences/impacts of unsafe drinking behaviour and ways to keep safe around alcohol.
