SADD - Students Against Drunk Driving
Over the past week at school the SADD Committee has been active, leaving visual messages around school with the ‘Drive, Drive, Die’ message. This year’s campaign concluded with a visit by Year 11 students to an expo in Thames. Two teenagers suffered critical injuries, two minor and one lost his life in the mock crash at the expo, designed to show teenagers the graphic reality of what happens when they mix alcohol and driving.
