In this assembly, students are taught about the various forms that substance misuse can take, including the misuse of alcohol, tobacco, illegal drugs and ‘legal highs’. They think about reasons why some people misuse these substances, and reasons to say “no”. They also realise that the reasons to say “no” are more compelling than the reasons to take the substances. They watch videos (according to their age) showing the effects of some of these substances and hear about the consequences under the law of possessing them. They also consider ways of refusing without losing face.
