SADD Report

SADD – students against drunk driving



At the start of this term, the SADD committee had launched a 2 weeks campaign regarding SADD. 



Prior to the SADD weeks, a lot of planning have been done. At the start of this year including regular meetings, assembly and activities were held throughout the terms.  These included special goggles exercise with Police to let students know how their vision would be after drinking, the extended effects of 'one drink and drive deceased person' to the family, friends, community and emergency services.

On the first day of this term, the front entrance of school displayed crosses which reminded us the people past away due to drink driver.  Over the SADD weeks, we have police came in with the booze bus, Reenactment (replay of a crash scene with the help of Waihi Police, Fire brigade and St. John), Assembly with Waihi Police, fire brigade and funeral director coroner (share their experience and thoughts on drunk driving accidence). On the final day – we held a mufti-day to raise fund for our local emergency services.  Also, we had a minute silence at the start of lunch time to remember all those who pass away due to drunk driving.  We hope this will help you to make the right choice in future. 

A cheque of $300 and a certificate of appreciation each was presented by Alistair Cochrane, our principal druing the Senior Principal Assembly on 7 September.
