The Star: Ice education breaks through
By Sarah Vella
THE Australian Anti Ice Campaign (AAIC) presented its first Victorian workshop at the Chairo Christian School last Thursday, to students in years 7 to 10.
The workshop was funded by the Leongatha and District Community Foundation and chair Rob Bacon said it was important topic for young people.
“We were hoping all the secondary schools in the town would run the program,” he said.
So far, Chairo was the only school to take on the program, however Mr Bacon said another was keen to hold a workshop in term three.
The workshop was delivered by people who have successfully rehabilitated from an ice addiction.
The presenters graphically conveyed the harsh reality of ice addiction and were uniquely positioned to break through peer influence with total honesty from personal experience.
