Independent School Queensland (ISQ), the peak body representing the state’s 236 independent schools, welcomes the Palaszczuk Government’s $5 million commitment to continue tackling vaping in all Queensland schools.
ISQ Chief Executive Officer, Chris Mountford said the announcement that the alcohol and drugs education program Blurred Minds Academy would be made available for all schools across the state was a pragmatic and welcomed move.
“Vaping in schools is an issue experienced across all education sectors, and is an issue we know all schools are doing their best to tackle head on,” Mr Mountford said.
“Allowing every Queensland student and teacher the opportunity to access evidence-based information and resources will only bolster the ongoing efforts to reduce the amount of young people taking up vaping and other harmful substances.”
