CLASSROOM GROUP AGREEMENT – WE LIKE IT WHEN:

We are kind and supportive of one another

We listen, learn and contribute (when we feel comfortable to do so)

We respect everyone’s right to privacy and do not ask personal questions

We share stories but not the names of people in those stories

We can ask questions

We can opt out if something makes us feel uncomfortable

We have fun

It can make you more impulsive, less aware of your personal safety

THE TRUTH ABOUT ALCOHOL ADVERTISING

Alcohol companies spend £800,000,000 each year on advertising

This marketing influences you to believe you need alcohol to have fun

Young people who are exposed to lots of alcohol
images can be influenced to drink at a younger age

The alcohol industry’s main aim is to make money,
not to look after your health or your safety

Saying no to alcohol as a young person is the smart thing to do
